Participant Agreement

I agree to the following as conditions of participating in any of the four events that make up the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival ("Event"). Event means any of the four events within the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival.

I acknowledge that: I participate in the Event at my own risk. I will take all reasonable measures to protect myself from the risks of participation. I accept all responsibility for travel and personal medical insurance and for payment and/or reimbursement of medical/surgical expenses incurred as a result of my participation in the Event.

I am responsible for all property I bring to the Event sites and acknowledge that Athletics Australia the event owner, (AA) and Pont3 Pty Ltd, the exclusive licensed promoter (“Pont3”) accepts no responsibility for any loss or damage to this property.

I consent to the conduct of identity verification checks, background security checks and any other security checks (which may include inspecting my personal property) prior to my entry to and / or departure from any Events site.

I will abide by the Event rules and timelines, as varied from time to time and will abide by directions given by Event Officials and accept that the Event Organiser has discretion to accept or decline an entry on whatever grounds.

I undertake to comply with all applicable regulations, by laws and rules of the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) and AA in relation to the Event and will comply with all reasonable directions and decisions of the officials, and other representatives of ASADA and AA and Blackmores Sydney Running Festival staff and officials.

I release AA and Pont3 (and their directors, officers, employees, volunteers, contractors, sponsors and / or agents) from any claim and from any liability (to the extent permitted by law) for or as a result of any loss, injury or damage suffered by me in relation to my attendance and participation at the Event, however so caused, including any claim or liability which arises due to any negligence of AA and / or Pont3 (and / or their directors, officers, employees, volunteers, contractors, sponsors and / or agents).

I consent to the publication and/or use in any form of media whatsoever of my name, race result, image, voice, statement or otherwise, including the publication of my name and/or event result and applicable age bracket in /or marketing materials/website without payment or compensation.

To the best of my knowledge, I am not suffering from a condition which would prevent and/or render me unfit to participate in the Event.

I have not knowingly used any substance for the purpose of enhancing my performance at the Event and will not use any substance or procedures prohibited by the rules of AA or the International Association of Athletics Federations (“IAAF”). (Competitors should check with their physician to ensure medication that they are taking is not a prohibited substance).

I understand entry fees are non-refundable for non-starters and non-finishers. Entry fees are refundable before July 31, 2018 although 25% of the entry fee will be retained to cover administration. All entries are non-transferrable. Fees will be processed by Pont3 Pty Ltd and an item will appear on your statement showing funds being debited by Pont3 Sydney Running Festival.

After July 31, I understand I can defer my entry to the 2019 event only. Deferrals can only be made until Friday, 7 September (by email) and Saturday, 15 September at 4pm from the ASICS Event Expo (in-person). A $5 admin on-site fee applies for any withdrawals processed at the Expo. Credit note will be given for the next consecutive year only and cannot be transferred to the following year or to another person. You will need to enter 2019 event prior to July 31 2019, an email with the instructions will be sent early February 2019. You will not be guaranteed a place in the 2019 event, if start groups or events sell out prior to you redeeming your credit note. You will only be granted credit for the early bird entry fee, regardless of the entry date in 2019. The difference in the standard fee period will be charged for those who enter after July 31, 2019.

I understand there is a $5 admin fee for any event changes, and race fee difference is payable.

If the Event is cancelled for safety concerns or otherwise as a result of something beyond the reasonable control of AA and / or Pont3 including and without limitation strong winds, heavy rain, excessive atmospheric pollution, lightening and accidents, or any other Act of God, I accept that my entry fee and / or any other cost incurred in order to participate and / or get to the Event will be non-refundable. In addition I acknowledge I will have no claim against AA and / or Pont 3 for any loss or damage I may suffer as a result of such cancellation.

I certify that I am 18 years or older, or that I am the parent/legal guardian of the Participant who is under the age of 18 years, and I have read this document and fully understand it. As a parent or legal guardian, I agree to this Participant Agreement for and on behalf of the Participant.
