Friday Five: Race Disclaimers We’d Like to See

Posted Feb 19 2010 8:13am

Most of us don’t read the fine print of those race registrations we sign or agree to electronically. I’ve taken a look at a few and the following excerpts in normal text are actual race disclaimers and rules. I’ve added the italicized text.

1) “No dogs, strollers, bicycles, unicycles, tricycles, inline skates, roller skates, bed springs, giant kites, jet-propelled pogo sticks, rocket sleds, roller skis, or skateboards are allowed on the course.”

2) “Race number must be visible on the participant’s front side. The participant’s back side should not be visible from space.

3) “I attest that I am physically fit and sufficiently trained for this competition, my physical condition verified by a licensed M.D. during the last 6 months. My mental condition is still under review by the psychiatric board.”

4) “I also grant permission to use my picture in any broadcast, telecast, or photo taken at this event. Unless I look like this guy.

5) “I understand that running a road race is/could be a hazardous activity, which may cause personal injury or even death. Those Gallowalkers can be murder.
