1. Participant Details
I intend to participate in the Fun Run and understand that in doing so I am subject to risks, including but not limited to my personal health and safety because of the physical nature of the Fun Run.
I acknowledge and agree that:-
• I should not participate in the Fun Run unless I have trained appropriately, and a medical practitioner has verified my physical condition. It is my sole responsibility to ensure such training and medical verification.
• I have not been advised or cautioned against participating in the Fun Run by a medical practitioner.
• I am in good health and that I am not taking any medication or substance which might adversely affect my ability to participate in the Fun Run and that I am free from any injury, medical condition, disability, disease or illness which may be aggravated by participation in the Fun Run or which may affect or interfere with my ability to engage in the Fun Run.
• I have no known physical or mental condition that would make it unsafe for me to participate in the Fun Run, or that would result in my participation creating a risk of danger to others.
• It is my responsibility to take care of my mental and physical condition during the Fun Run and I agree to cease participation and notify RACQ CQ Rescue and/or Fun Run personnel if at any point my continued participation would create a risk of danger to myself or to others.
• Should it become necessary, I authorise RACQ CQ Rescue or Fun Run Personnel to secure emergency medical care or transportation (i.e., QAS) and to notify my emergency contact if I am not able. I consent to receive any medical treatment that is deemed necessary and appropriate in the circumstances before, during or after the Fun Run.
• Safety precautions undertaken by RACQ and Fun Run Personnel, such as course supervision, are a service to me and other participants but are not a guarantee of safety and as a result I agree to comply with the directions of RACQ CQ Rescue and Fun Run Personnel during the Fun Run and follow all road rules, including instruction from traffic controllers, Police, and RACQ CQ Rescue and Fun Run Personnel.
• RACQ CQ Rescue and/or Fun Run Personnel may in its reasonable discretion terminate my participation (either before or during the Fun Run) and, if necessary, have me removed from the course and premises if I have breached any of the Terms and Conditions of Entry as set out in this form or my participation, conduct, or presence endangers myself or other participants.
3. Release, Waiver and Indemnity
In consideration of RACQ CQ Rescue accepting my entry into the Fun Run, I accept all risks associated from my participation in the Fun Run and absolutely release and waive any Claim I might otherwise have against the Releasees in respect of any injury, death, loss or damage I suffer as a result of my participation in the Fun Run, howsoever arising, including any loss or damage arising from any negligence by the Releasees and will indemnify the Releasees against all liability (including liability for their negligence) for all injury, loss, damage arising out of or connected with my participation in the Fun Run.
I agree that RACQ CQ Rescue is not responsible or liable for the repair or replacement of any personal possessions whether lost, damaged, stolen or otherwise.
This release, waiver and indemnity continues forever and binds my heirs, executors and personal representatives.
4. Media and Photography – Consent to Use
I consent to RACQ CQ Rescue, Fun Run Personnel and the media using my name, image, voice and/or likeness captured before, during or after the Fun Run in any event promotion materials, reporting, media, and/or any other record for any purpose whatsoever without compensation.
I acknowledge my personal information, including photos, is collected, held and used by the Fun Run for event coordination, administration, marketing and fundraising purposes and consent to such information being used for that purpose.
I understand that my email address will be used for registration confirmation and Fun Run updates as well as support to help me reach my fundraising and training goals. Every now and then, the Fun Run and/or RACQ CQ Rescue may also send me information about other events that may be of interest to me.

I acknowledge that RACQ CQ Rescue will order my requested shirt/singlet size if I register for the Fun Run before the cut-off date. If I register after the cutoff I understand that RACQ CQ Rescue will endeavor to provide me with my desired shirt/singlet size and, if unavailable, the next closest size. If I wish to change my shirt/singlet I am aware that this will only be possible after all other participants have received their shirts/singlets on the day.
