athlete agreement & waiver


Both the Competitor Responsibility Statement and the liability waiver form part of the UK Ultra Limited terms and conditions.

Participating in running events requires fitness and skill.

I confirm that I have done sufficient training to ensure that I am fit enough to cope with the demands of this event and that my technical skills are adequate for the diverse requirements of the competition.

I accept that taking part in this event is by its nature hazardous and contains certain inherent risks including, but not limited to:

  • Suffering injury due to the actions of other competitors or spectators

There are many other foreseeable risks to which I consent. I accept that I owe a significant duty of care to all other competitors, spectators and race officials. I will exercise all care to avoid causing death, injury or loss to any such persons and will indemnify UK Ultra Limited from and against any liability found against them arising out of my negligent or reckless acts.

I accept that in the event of my requiring medical attention during the event the medical personnel appointed by the event organiser take no responsibility for the treatment provided for any unreported existing condition which increases the risk of a medical emergency.

I acknowledge that UK Ultra Limited or any other relevant body has relied on this statement (in its entirety) in accepting my entry to the event and that if I was unable or unwilling to agree to all the matters set out above in this statement of responsibility UK Ultra Limited or any other relevant body would not allow me to compete.

All statements of fact are true.
