I UNDERSTAND that participating in a road race, even if it is conducted virtually, is a potentially hazardous activity and can result in serious injury or death. I am aware of and I expressly assume all inherent risks associated with participating in the Events, including, but not limited to, falls, contact with other participants and objects, the effects of weather, including high heat and humidity, traffic, and the conditions of the road. I understand that there will be no on-course support from the Event Sponsors or any other entity such as a government personnel or emergency medical services.
I FURTHER UNDERSTAND that the novel coronavirus or COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization, is extremely contagious, and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and their health agencies recommend social distancing and I understand that my participation in any of the Events could increase my risk of contracting COVID-19. I understand that the Event sponsors identified below cannot guarantee that I will not become infected with COVID-19 while participating in any of the Events. By signing below, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19, the lack of social distancing measures in the Events, and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 while participating in the Events and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death.

I ATTEST that I am physically fit and have sufficiently trained for competition of the Events. I am responsible for my own safety and wellbeing at all times at the Events.
I CONSENT to receive medical treatment which may be advisable in the event of illness or injuries suffered by me during the Events, and I agree to pay for the costs of my medical treatment.
I AGREE to receive mailings from the Honolulu Marathon Association which does not obligate me to purchase any marathon related product.
