The in-person Event may be held over public roads and facilities open to the public during the Event, and upon which hazards are to be expected. I understand that running or walking in the Event as a virtual activity where I run or walk on my own, at a date and time of my choosing, in a location and route of my choosing, which will not have any support or security measures in place by the Mario Lemieux Foundation is a potentially hazardous activity. I understand that participating in the Event is a potentially hazardous activity and that I should not participate in this Event unless I am medically able to do so and properly trained and by signing this Release, I certify that I am medically able to perform this Event, and I am in good health, and I am properly trained. I further agree to abide by the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) recommendations for the prevention of the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and other communicable diseases, and I attest to having read the CDC’s guidance at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html. I attest that if my community has a shelter in place order, I will only participate in the Event virtually by using a personal treadmill, and I will not run or walk outside in the community during the duration of a shelter in place order. I agree to follow all pedestrian safety ordinances including running or walking on a sidewalk where available and not in the road. I agree to follow the rules of the road if no sidewalk or multi-use trail is available, and I will run or walk against oncoming traffic and not with traffic.
    .
    I assume all risks associated with participating as part of this Event including, but not limited to, falls, contact with other participants and pedestrians, accidents, injuries, disability, death, effects of weather, traffic, and the conditions of the course, road or trail, such risks being known or unknown and appreciated by me when out running or walking on my own without any type of support from local officials or Event organizers.

I recognize, intend and understand that this Release is binding on my heirs, executors, administrators, or assignees. I FULLY UNDERSTAND I AM FOREVER GIVING UP IN ADVANCE ANY RIGHT TO SUE OR MAKE ANY CLAIM AGAINST THE RELEASEES IF I SUFFER SUCH INJURIES AND DAMAGES EVEN THOUGH I DO NOT KNOW WHAT OR HOW EXTENSIVE THOSE INJURIES AND DAMAGES MIGHT BE AND AM VOLUNTARILY ASSUMING THE RISK OF SUCH INJURIES AND DAMAGES.

I understand that this Event does not provide for refunds in the event of a cancellation, and by signing this Release, I consent that I am not entitled to a refund if the Event is cancelled before or during the Event. I hereby agree that this Release is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted, and that if any provision of this Agreement and Waiver shall be found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Release and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions, and that this Release shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania without reference to any choice of law doctrine.
