Medal Junkie Race Waiver & Medical Precautionary Notes
Please note: No virtual races can be booked or medals sent without consenting to these conditions.
I know that running and walking in competition is a strenuous and potentially hazardous activity. I understand and assume all risks associated with participating in any virtual race run by Medal Junkie including, but not limited to, falls, the effects of weather, including snow, ice, rain, heat and/or humidity, traffic, altitude, road and surface, conditions, collisions with pedestrians and other runners and all risks being known and appreciated by me.
Having read this waiver and knowing these facts, and in considering your accepting my entry, I, for myself, my heirs, and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the Medal Junkie Sponsors, the employees, and directors of this organization from all claims or liabilities of any kind.
I hereby agree to seek medical advice in advance of undertaking a Medal Junkie 5K virtual run if I have any medical concerns or family history as outlined below.
Has your doctor ever said that you have a heart condition and that you should only do physical activity recommended by a doctor?
Do you feel pain in your chest when you do physical activity?
In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not doing physical activity?
Do you lose your balance because of dizziness or do you ever lose consciousness?
Do you have a bone or joint problem (for example, back, knee, or hip) that could be made worse by a change in your physical activity?
Is your doctor currently prescribing drugs (for example, water pills) for your blood pressure or heart condition?
Do you know of any other reason why you should not do physical activity?
If you answered YES to any of the above questions on this list, you must check in with your doctor and get cleared for exercise before you start.
I hereby consent to receive medical treatment that may be deemed advisable in the event of injury, accident, and/or illness prior, during or after the race resulting from my participation in the event.
