Katy Area Running Club 
Membership Waiver 
I know and accept that involvement as a Participant of a Katy Area Running Club (the “Club”) event, such as organized group runs, social events, and races are potentially hazardous activities, which could cause injury or death. I will not participate in any Club organized events, group training runs or social events, unless I am medically able and properly trained, and by my signature, I certify that I am medically able to perform all activities associated with the Club event and am in good health, and I am properly trained. I agree to abide by any decision of a Club official or representative relative to any aspect of my participation in this event, including the right of any official or representative to deny or suspend my participation for any reason whatsoever. I attest that I understand the rules of the Club’s event and agree to abide by them. I assume all risks associated with being a Participant of the Club Event which may include: falls, contact with other participants, the effects of the weather, including high heat and/or humidity, lightning, hail, wind, traffic and the conditions of the road or trail, wild animals including, but not limited to, snakes, alligators, and feral hogs, all such risks being known and appreciated by me. I understand that skateboards, roller skates or roller blades, and animals other than service animals are not allowed to be used in Club organized running activities and I agree to abide by this rule.  
As it applies to my participation in all club activities, I agree to abide by State, County and Local restrictions, requirements and restrictions, as well as the Center for Disease Control (CDC)'s recommendations, for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19. I understand that though reasonable precautions against the spread of COVID-19 will be taken by the organizers of any and all club activities, I am personally responsible for my own personal hygiene as it relates to transmission of COVID-19.   
Having read this waiver and knowing these facts and in consideration of your accepting my participation, I, for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the Club, Fort Bend County, the City of Katy, Texas, and the Road Runners Club of America, all Club sponsors, their representatives and successors from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation with the Club, even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the persons named in this waiver. I grant permission to all of the foregoing to use my photographs, motion pictures, recordings or any other record for any legitimate promotional purposes for the Club.
