Activities may be scheduled or unscheduled, mandatory or optional, structured or unstructured and include free time.  I acknowledge that the inherent and other risks, hazards and dangers (collectively referred to in this Form as “risks”) of these activities can cause injury, damage, death or other loss to participant or others.  The following describes some, but not all of the inherent risks, as applicable to participant’s activities:
Risks in any competitive or athletic activity.  Training for, practicing or competing in triathlon or other events and associated swimming, cycling, running and other conditioning involves frequent and repetitive use of the arms and legs, extreme fitness and endurance, and pushing the limits of the participant’s speed and abilities.
Risks present in an outdoor environment.  Participants may be subject to: high altitude or mountainous terrain; severe storms or bad weather such as lightning, strong winds, rain, hail, snow and ice; fast moving or deep lakes, oceans or other water bodies; currents or whitewater; extremely hot or cold weather; stinging, venomous and/or disease carrying animals (jncluding marine life) or insects and other natural or man-made hazards. Hazards (both on land and above and below water level) may not be marked or visible and weather is always unpredictable.
Risks involved in decision making and conduct.  These risks include the risk that a USM staff member, representative, volunteer, contractor or co-participant may misjudge a participant’s capabilities, health or physical condition, misjudge some aspect of instruction, medical treatment, weather, terrain, water level, or route location, or, that one of those persons may not warn participant (and/or participant’s legal guardian) about one or more of the inherent risks of these activities.
Cycling, running and swimming risks. These risks include the risk of losing control and falling from the bike, colliding with objects or people (including co-participants or spectators) on land or in water, tripping or falling down or encountering other water/road/trail hazards; or being submerged underwater, hitting bottom or drowning.
Personal health and participation risks.  The risk that a participant’s mental, physical or emotional condition (including any use or abuse of alcohol or prescription or non-prescription drugs), whether disclosed or undisclosed, known or unknown, combined with participation in these activities could result in injury, damage, death or other loss.  Although USM may review participant’s medical information, submitted in the registration process, USM cannot anticipate or eliminate risks or complications posed by a participant’s mental, physical (including fitness level) or emotional condition.
Risks connected with location. Activity location may cause or contribute to delays or difficulties in communication, transportation, evacuation or medical care. 
Risks associated with premises.  Ruts, holes, water sources, rocks, uneven ground or other conditions may exist in and around the activities. 
Equipment risks.  The risk that equipment used in activities may be misused, or may break, fail or malfunction.  Participant (and/or the participant’s legal guardian) assumes full responsibility for choosing appropriate equipment and for the fit and condition of the equipment.  USM requires use of helmets for biking activities.  Helmets or other safety gear may prevent or lessen injuries in some instances; however, use of safety gear is not a guarantee of safety, and injury can occur even with the use of this gear. 
Supervision and activities risks.  I understand that neither USM nor its staff, representatives, volunteers, contractors or anyone associated with them will be supervising participant during the activities or at any time.  Adult participant agrees he/she is solely responsible for his/her own well-being at all times; or, if applicable, a participant’s legal guardian agrees to take sole responsibility for participant’s supervision before, during and after the Event and other activities, including during free time and at all other times.
Risks regarding conduct.  The potential that participant, co-participant/s and/or third party/s may act in a negligent or intentional manner.
Risk regarding criminal/terrorist activity. The potential that third party/s may commit criminal acts or acts of terrorism.
These and other risks may result in participants: falling partway or falling to the ground; being struck; colliding with objects, people or the bottom of a lake or other water body; experiencing bicycle or vehicle collision or rollover; reacting to high altitudes, weather conditions or increased exertion; becoming lost or disoriented; suffering gastro-intestinal complications or allergic reactions or experiencing other problems. These and other circumstances may cause heat or cold related illnesses or conditions (including  hypothermia, cold water immersion, frostbite, hyperthermia, or heat exhaustion/stroke); dehydration; hyponatremia; drowning; high altitude sickness; heart or lung complications; broken bones; paralysis or other permanent disability; mental or emotional trauma; concussions; sunburn or other burns or other injury, damage, death or loss -- before, during or even after the participant participates in the Event or other activities.
