In consideration of the Indemnified Persons accepting my participation in the Event or any individual event that may involve a significant risk of physical harm, I agree to this release of claims, waiver of liability and assumption of risk. I am aware that swimming is a recreational activity which may involve, in addition to usual and inherent risks, personal injury, obvious risk, danger to myself, the possibility of injury and harm and physical exertion for which I may not be prepared, remoteness to normal medical service, weather extremes subject to sudden and unexpected change and evacuation difficulties if I am disabled.

I accept all of the inherent and obvious risks involved with swimming, which I acknowledge is a dangerous recreational activity. I also am aware of and accept the possibility of personal injury, death, property damage or loss resulting there from. I acknowledge that the enjoyment and excitement of swimming is derived in part from the inherent risks incurred by the activity beyond the accepted safety of life at home or work and that these inherent risks contribute to such enjoyment and excitement being a reason for my participation.

I hereby release and forever discharge the Indemnified Persons from any and all claims, suits, demands, expenses, costs, damages or proceedings of any nature whatsoever arising from any personal injury, death, property damage or loss sustained by me or any other person as a result of my participation in the Event.

I hereby indemnify and hold harmless the Indemnified Persons from and against all claims, suits, demands, expenses, costs, actions, and proceedings of any nature whatsoever arising from any injury, loss, or damage sustained by me or any injury, loss, or damaged suffered by any other person as a result of any act, omission, neglect, or default on my part in connection with my participation in the event.

I understand that the Indemnified Persons have the right to postpone the event, alter the advertised course, or start time or cancel the event if conditions warrant. Indemnified Persons will make every possible effort to ensure this event takes place. However there will be no refunds given if the event is cancelled due to circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Indemnified Persons. These circumstances include without limitation; lake conditions, fire, flood, storms, explosion, acts of God, war, governmental actions or non performance by third parties.

I agree to submit a blood and urine sample to the New Zealand Sports Anti-Doping Authority for drug testing, if required.

I confirm that I am fit enough to participate in an event of this nature.

I hereby agree to allow my photograph, video, multimedia or film likeness to be used for any legitimate purpose by the organisers, sponsors, or others.

I agree that if I suffer injury the Indemnified Persons can at my cost arrange medical treatment and emergency evacuation services as the Indemnified Persons deem essential for my safety.

I hereby agree that I am responsible for my own medical and ambulance insurance.

I confirm that I am an age of legal consent (that is 18 years or older in New Zealand) and that I have read and understood this Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability Agreement prior to signing it and agree that this agreement will be binding upon my heirs, next of kin, executors, administrators, and successors.

I, parent / guardian of the above participant consent to my son/daughter participating in the event organised or sanctioned by the Indemnified Persons and confirm that I have read and understood this agreement prior to proceeding with my entry.
