PARTICIPANTS/GUARDIANS: READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING. THIS DOCUMENT HAS LEGAL CONSEQUENCES AND WILL AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND WILL LIMIT OR ELIMINATE YOUR ABILITY TO BRING FUTURE LEGAL ACTIONS.
 
I understand and acknowledge that by signing below, I am legally agreeing to all of the following statements in exchange for being permitted to participate in a GORUCK Event (“GORUCK Event”), which includes all or part of the following: (a) participation in a GORUCK Event (“GORUCK Event”) while wearing a rucksack with weight, and (b) GORUCK Event personnel and/or GORUCK Event participant-led social activities pre- and post- the GORUCK Event.
 
1.     I understand that participating in a GORUCK Event wearing a rucksack full of bricks is an extremely hazardous activity. I acknowledge that a GORUCK Event is an extreme and unreasonable test of my physical and mental limits that carries with it inherent risks of physical injury that cannot be eliminated completely, including but not limited to an above-average risk of death and/or serious injury. Performing exercises during a GORUCK Event wearing a GORUCK rucksack filled with bricks or carrying anything of weight whatsoever, including but not limited to logs and/or other GORUCK Event participants, is especially hazardous and brings with it unique dangers that may not be known prior to their occurrence.
 
2.     I expressly, knowingly and voluntarily assume all of the risks of participating in a GORUCK Event. I understand and acknowledge that these risks include, but are not limited to: falls; illness; infection; contact or collision with spectators, personnel, and other pedestrians; contact or collision with motor vehicles or machinery; contact or collision with other participants of varying skill levels; contact and the effects of contact with natural and man-made fixed objects; natural and man-made water, road and surface hazards; close proximity and/or contact with thick smoke and/or open flames; inadequate competition equipment and/or equipment failure; dangers arising from weather conditions, including but not limited to extreme heat, cold, humidity, ice, rain, or fog; imperfect course conditions; and inadequate safety measures. I understand and acknowledge that these risks may cause harms including, but not limited to: bodily injury, ranging from minor to severe; illness or infection, ranging from minor to severe; physical and/or mental effects of exposure to extreme conditions and circumstances, ranging from minor to severe; temporary or permanent disability; paralysis; death; and property damage or loss. I understand that the risks of participating in a GORUCK Event may be caused in whole or in part by: my own actions or inactions; the actions or inactions of other participants; the actions or inactions of spectators or other pedestrians; and/or the acts, inactions, or negligence of the Released Parties (as defined below). I agree that prior to participating in a GORUCK Event I will inspect the facilities, equipment and areas to be used, and if I believe or become aware that any are unsafe or pose unreasonable risks, I agree to immediately notify appropriate personnel and take actions to protect myself and others. I accept full and sole responsibility for the condition and adequacy of my equipment and my assessment of all apparent aspects of the facilities and areas to be used, even those to which I was granted no prior knowledge. I expressly assume all risks and take full responsibility for any and all damages, liabilities, losses, or expenses that I incur as a result of participating in a GORUCK Event.
 
3.     I agree that it is my responsibility to determine whether I am sufficiently fit, healthy, skilled and physically trained to safely participate in a GORUCK Event. I hereby represent that I am, and on the dates of the GORUCK Event will be, in good health and in proper physical condition to safely participate in the GORUCK Event. I certify that I have no known or knowable physical or mental conditions that would affect my ability to safely participate in the GORUCK Event, or that would result in my participation creating a risk of danger to myself or to others. I further certify that I have not been advised or cautioned otherwise by a medical practitioner. I understand that the GORUCK Event is such an extreme test of human physical and mental limits that I may not be able to safely complete it, even if I am sufficiently fit, healthy, skilled and physically trained to safely participate. I understand that it is my responsibility to continuously monitor my own physical and mental condition during the GORUCK Event. I agree to withdraw immediately and to notify appropriate personnel if at any point my continued participation would create a risk of danger to myself or to others. I acknowledge and agree that I will not be reimbursed any portion of any fees paid for participation in the GORUCK Event if I withdraw before completing the GORUCK Event, as I understand that all fees are paid only in exchange for the opportunity to participate to the best of my ability as described in this document, and in no way reflect an entitlement to complete the GORUCK Event. I understand that I am strongly advised to consult a medical practitioner before participating, especially if I am pregnant, disabled, or have recently suffered any illness, injury, or impairment. I attest that I am covered by medical insurance, individually or as part of an organization. I will not participate in any aspect of the GORUCK Event if I am not covered by medical insurance at such time.
 
4.     I assume full responsibility for any injury, loss or damage associated with my use or consumption of alcohol and/or drugs at any point during the GORUCK Event. I understand the dangers associated with the use or consumption of alcohol and/or drugs and I recognize that such use or consumption might impair my judgment and motor skills. I certify that I am not, and on the dates of the GORUCK Event will not be, under the influence of alcohol or any drugs that would in any way impair my ability to safely participate in the GORUCK Event or any aspect of it. I assume full responsibility for any injury or loss to myself or to others and for any damage to any personal or real property associated with my use or consumption of alcohol and/or drugs at any point during the GORUCK Event. I further understand that the risks and dangers described in the paragraph above include but are not limited to all risks and dangers associated with the consumption of alcohol before, after, or during participation in the GORUCK Event. I understand that the GORUCK Event is an extreme test of mental and physical fitness and that the risks and dangers of consuming alcohol before, after, or during such a test may be magnified. I take full responsibility for any decision to consume alcohol before, after, or during the GORUCK Event and I understand that it is my responsibility to know my own limits. I also understand that the responsibility for injury, loss or damage that I assumed in the paragraph above includes but is not limited to full responsibility for any injury or loss to myself or to others and for any damage to any personal or real property associated with any such decision to consume alcohol. I hereby indemnify and agree to hold harmless the Released Parties (as defined below) from any injury, loss, or damage described in this section.
 
5.     I agree to abide by the rules of the GORUCK Event and to comply with the directions and instructions of GORUCK Event personnel. I agree to become familiar with and abide by all written and/or posted rules of the GORUCK Event, as well as all written and/or posted rules of any venue site, facility, or location at which GORUCK Event activities are being held. I further agree to comply with all directions, instructions and decisions of GORUCK Event personnel, including but not limited to instructions or directions relating to the manner of my safe participation in the GORUCK Event or continued participation in the GORUCK Event at any time. Except as otherwise prohibited by law, I agree not to challenge these rules, directions, instructions, or decisions on any basis at any time and I acknowledge that they are reasonable and necessary to reduce risk; protect the safety of participants, spectators, and personnel; and/or promote fairness and the spirit of the GORUCK Event.  I also understand that my participation in any of the challenging activities that happen during the GORUCK Event are optional at my sole discretion, and that GORUCK Event personnel do not force me to do any of the team or individual based activities. I understand that I am free to quit the GORUCK Event at any time at my sole discretion.

I also specifically agree to obey all civil and criminal laws, including traffic laws and regulations.

3 HOURS, 3 WORKOUTS, 3 MOVEMENTS.

Grab a ruck, grab a sandbag, you choose the weight. Bring some friends or make some when you get there. Start outside, stay outside, spread out, turn the music up, do some hard work, ruck some miles, drink some beer when you’re done. This is how like minded people meet like minded people. By doing the work together.
