By clicking on "I Agree," you agree, warrant and covenant as follows:
For considering my entry’s acceptance in the Marine Corps Marathon, I the undersigned, intending to be legally bound, waive and release for myself, my heirs, executor and adminis- trators, any and all rights and claims for damages, demands and any other actions, which I may have against the US Marine Corps, US Government, National Park Service, volunteer medical support, all participating supports and those entities’ representatives, successors and assignees, from my participation in the event, including any and all injuries suffered by me because of my participation in this event. I verify I have full knowledge of the rigors of this race and the risk involved in participation, and I am physically fit and have sufficiently trained to complete this event. I realize medical support for this event will consist of primarily of volunteer medical personnel prepared to administer first-aid type assistance along the race course and the finish line. I hereby grand permission to the Marine Corps Marathon and its sponsors to use all information submitted in my application, and any photograph, videotape, motion pictures, recording and any other record of this event including race results, my likeness, name and completion time for any lawful purpose related to the race and post-race publicity. Runner data may be used to offer a limited number of race enhancements.
The Marine Corps Marathon is open to all people who are physically fit. However, running a marathon is not recommended for people below the age of 14. It is also recommended anyone over the age of 35 and/or with a family history of heart disease consult with their physician before undertaking the marathon.
The Race Director reserves the right to reject any entry. No unauthorized bicycles or roller skates permitted during the race; headphones or other similar devices are not advised.
Runner acknowledges that the entry fee paid is non-refundable. Runner acknowledges and agrees that the Marine Corps Marathon in its sole discretion, may delay or cancel the event if it believes the conditions on race day are unsafe. In the event the Event is delayed or cancelled for any reason, including but not limited to: fire, threatened or actual strike, labor difficulty, work stoppage, insurrection, war, public disaster, flood, unavoidable casualty, acts of God or the elements, or any other cause beyond the control of the Marine Corps Marathon there shall be no refund of the entry fee or any other costs of Runner in connection with the Event.

In addition to the foregoing, and in consideration of being allowed to participate as a member of the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation’s Team “Swab a Cheek” in the Marine Corps Marathon or 10k Road Race, in addition to the release and waiver set forth above, I hereby release and waive any and all right to sue the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation, its affiliates and chapters, their respective officers, directors, volunteers, employees, sponsors and agents (collectively the “Gift of Life Affiliates”), from any and all liability, claims, or actions for injury, death, expenses, or damage to person or property arising out of the inherent risks of my participation in either event. This waiver and release is effective even if the injury, death or damage to person or property is caused by, or contributed to by the actions (or the failure to act) of the Gift of Life Affiliates and which actions or inactions constitute ordinary negligence or a violation of any applicable law pertaining to either event. I also hereby grant full permission to the Gift of Life Affiliates to use and publish my name and image as a participant in photographs, video and other recordings. This Waiver and Release shall be binding upon my successors, assigns, executors, personal representatives, estate, heirs and legatees.

Swab a Cheek, Save a Life (“SACSAL”), a campaign of The Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation (“GOL”), may use your name, information, photographs and/or video footage (collectively “Works”) in educational, public relations and promotional material.

I hereby authorize SACSAL/GOL or its designees, licensees, successors and agents to use my name, information and photographs. I authorize these Works to be used in videotape, audiotape, print, web and other formats. I understand the Works may reside in SACSAL’s/GOL’s stock files for possible future use.

I transfer and assign to SACSAL/GOL all of my rights, title and interest in and to any such Works, including all rights of registration, publication, and the right to create derivative works.
