WARNING: The sports of recreational and competitive walking, running, archery, and participation in Total Archery Challenge (hereinafter “Event”) present many unique challenges heightened by rough, ever-changing walking and running surfaces, which are hazardous, with many inherent risks and resulting injuries or death. The Event environment presents significant challenges that may affect a participant’s ability to safely use archery equipment. Archery equipment is dangerous. Falls and injuries are a common occurrence in all these activities therefore requiring your deliberate and conscious control in relation to ever-changing variables and dangers. Always proceed courteously and walk should conditions warrant. Walking, running, and archery are dangerous sports with inherent risks including the steep, slippery, uneven condition of trails, slopes, roads and parking lots which contain rocks, trees, ledges, soft sand, mud, slippery grass, water bars, pavement, gravel, snow, ice, other on-mountain and off-mountain vehicles, injury caused by archery equipment, riding chairlifts and other manmade objects on the mountain including competition and archery equipment. Your safety is directly affected by your judgment. Walk, run, and use archery equipment only within your own ability.
