I expressly accept and assume all of the risks inherent in this activity or that might have been caused by the negligence of the Releasees. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary and I elect to participate despite the risks. In addition, if at any time I believe that event conditions are unsafe or that I am unable to participate due to physical or medical conditions, then I will immediately discontinue participation. 3. I expressly accept and assume all of the risks inherent in this activity or that might have been caused by the negligence of the Releasees known that this event is in a group setting and that I may come in contact or contract the Covid-19 virus or any other viruses. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary and I elect to participate and release any liability from the Releasees despite the risks 4. I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless Releasees from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action which are in any way connected with my participation in this activity, or my use of their equipment or facilities, arising from negligence. This release does not apply to claims arising from intentional conduct. Should Releasees or anyone acting on their behalf be required to incur attorney’s fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs. 5. I represent that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I suffer or cause while participating in this activity, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage myself. I further represent that I have no medical or physical condition which could interfere with my safety in this activity, or else I am willing to assume- and bear the costs of- all risks that may be created, directly or indirectly, by any such condition. 6.
