"Agreement and Waiver


While you should read the entire document, some of the key points of this Agreement and Waiver are highlighted here:

  • The activity you are registering for (the "Event") is physically challenging and involves the risk of discomfort, illness, injury and even death. You must be certain that you have the physical capacity to participate in the Event without risk to your health or life. We do not carry out health checks or physical fitness tests on participants.
  • Although we take care to make the Event as safe as possible, we cannot eliminate all risks and dangers to participants and spectators, so you participate or attend at your own risk.

If you have registered on behalf of a minor or accompanied a minor to attend the Event as a spectator, you also accept the contents of this Agreement and Waiver on behalf of the minor.

With respect to the authorization to register and/or participate and/or attend as a spectator at the Event, on your own behalf and on behalf of any personal representative, beneficiary, heir, executor, successor, next of kin and person for whom you provide support (if permitted by applicable law), you understand the following:

1. Authorization to register and/or act as agent. You represent and warrant to Across and Beyond Endurance AG ("ABE") that you have full legal authority and capacity to complete the registration for the Event, including this Agreement and Waiver, on your own behalf and/or, if applicable, on behalf of any party for whom you are completing the registration (the "Registered Parties"), including full authority to use the credit or debit card to which the registration fee will be charged. For purposes of this Agreement and Waiver, (a) "ABE" means and includes Across and Beyond Endurance AG, its partners, dealers and any of its subsidiaries, affiliated entities or entities that control, are controlled by, or are under common control with "ABE", alone or in combination, as well as all of its officers, employees, contractors, subcontractors and agents, but also all of their agents, representatives, successors and beneficiaries ; and (b) "you" or "your" means and includes you (as an individual) and all other registered parties for whom you register and, by virtue of your acceptance of this Agreement and Waiver, for whom you waive certain rights.
