Waiver / Minimum Age (Trail Running): Trail running is physically demanding and involves risks inherent to the sport, including risk of serious injury or death. Participants are responsible for assuring that they are physically fit. All participants are required to complete and sign a waiver and release form and submit this form when registering.
