WAIVER OF LIABILITY/INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT (“AGREEMENT”). THIS AGREEMENT HAS LEGAL CONSEQUENCES AND WILL AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS AND THOSE OF YOUR CHILD(REN) AND WILL LIMIT YOU AND YOUR CHILD(REN)’S ABILITY TO BRING FUTURE CLAIMS, DEMANDS, LEGAL ACTION, OR CAUSE OF ACTION.
The TRENCH™ KIDS (the “event”) involves strenuous physical activities, such as running, jumping, and negotiating (i.e., running,
jumping, or climbing over, under, or through) obstacles involving mud, sand, water, cargo nets, tires, rope swings, balance beams, climbing
walls, and other similar obstacles. Both parents and child(ren) must be in good physical condition and should not suffer from any
conditions which would prevent a person from safely participating in the event. Parents and child(ren) are strongly encouraged to consult
with their medical providers before participating in the event if they have any concerns as to whether they can safely participate in it. Due
to the strenuous physical activities, use of obstacles, and involvement of other event participants, parents and child(ren) must understand
that the event carries with it inherent risks of physical injury. Such inherent risks include, but are not limited to, encounters with obstacles,
equipment-related hazards (e.g., unexpected equipment failure, imperfect course conditions, or defective or inadequate equipment),
weather-related hazards (e.g., extreme heat, extreme cold, humidity, ice, rain, or fog), inadequate or negligent first aid and/or emergency
measures, or problems created by other event participants.
In order to keep the course safe for all participants and attendees, and as required by the event site owners, no strollers or other
wheeled vehicles will be permitted through the course without previous authorization from the event directors (i.e., Managing Director,
Operations Director, or Event Director), and no dogs are allowed at the event site.
Parents, please understand that by registering your child(ren), you are entering your child(ren) into a binding legal agreement involvinglegal terms and conditions, including a waiver of liability and an indemnification. Parent also understands and agree to the code of conduct posted on website and at event grounds.

We reserve the right to postpone or cancel the event due to circumstances beyond our control such as a natural disaster or emergency or as required to protect the safety of participants and staff. No refunds will be issued under these circumstances. We reserve the right to change the details of the event without prior notice.
