Liability Waiver

All participants in the Kancman Epic Triathlon assume full responsibility and liability before, during, and any time after the event. I ACKNOWLEDGE that a triathlon event is an extreme test of a person’s physical and mental limits and carries with it the potential for death, serious injury and property loss. I hereby assume the risks of participation. I certify that I am physically fit and have sufficiently trained for participation in this event(s), and have not been advised against participation by a qualified health professional. I AGREE that prior to participating in an event I will inspect the suggested course and areas to be used and if I believe they are unsafe I will immediately advise the person supervising the event activity, facility, or area. I ACKNOWLEDGE that there will be traffic or persons ON the suggested route, and I ASSUME THE RISK OF RUNNING, BIKING, SWIMMING OR PARTICIPATING IN ANY AND ALL CAPACITIES.

Organizers, the New Hampshire State Parks, the National Forest Service and any and all sponsors or supporters cannot be held liable for any incident occurring while participants are on the suggested Kancman Triathlon route. This is considered an unofficial event and is not a race. Roads will remain open to traffic and participants are fully responsible for knowing the course and providing nutritional and equipment relief. Participants are responsible for following all traffic laws, riding single file, and practicing safe practices while on the bike course. No support will be provided throughout any part of the swim, bike, or run. There will be no lifeguards, no boats, no buoys and no assistance during the swim. The swim, bike, and run portions of this event are entirely voluntary. It is the participant’s responsibility to decide whether or not it is safe to participate in one or all of the activities. Kancman Epic Triathlon is an unofficial gathering of friends and is not a paid event or race. Donations made to hosts are not required for participation and may not be considered as a form of fee or payment for participation, or as evidence of sanctioned or encourage participation. Any participant who partakes in consuming alcoholic beverages must be of legal drinking age (21) and is requested to not operate any vehicle after consuming alcoholic beverages – motorized or not. All participants of the Kancman Epic Triathlon agree to this liability agreement and cannot hold hosts, sites, or sponsors/supporters liable for any and all incidents.
