  • In consideration of your acceptance of this entry, I hereby, for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators and assigns, release and discharge the promoters, directors, volunteers, Potomac Valley Track Club, RRCA, USATF, Alexandria City Public Schools, Fairfax County Public Schools, and organizations and municipalities whose facilities are being used for this event, from any and all claims for damages suffered by me as a result of my participation in the these events. I specifically release and discharge said promoters, directors and their agents, etc., from all injuries or damages arising from or attributed to any physical impairment or defect I may have, whether latent or patent, and agree that they are under no obligation to provide a physical examination or other evidence of my fitness to participate in above event, the same being my sole responsibility. I attest and verify that I am physically fit and have sufficiently trained for the Retro Games. In addition, I understand that backward running is substantially different from forward running, including that backward running utilizes different muscles and requires running with limited visibility, and I expressly assume all risks, including but not limited to the risks of injury, falling and contact with other runners. I also expressly state that I have adequately trained for backward running races, including but not limited to backward running at distances equal to or longer than those in which I will compete. In addition, the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 can be extremely contagious. Evidence has shown that COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life threatening illness and even death. I hereby choose to accept the risk of contracting COVID-19 for myself and/or my children in order to participate in the Retro Games. I accept the risk of being exposed to, contracting, and/or spreading COVID-19. I understand to help mitigate any risk to myself and others, it is recommended that I be fully vaccinated and/or have a negative PCR/antigen test within 7 days of the competition. I understand that in the event that additional requirements are imposed or recommended by the CDC or governmental authorities, additional measures may be required in order to participate in the Retro Games, including proof of vaccination and/or proof of a negative PCR/antigen test.
