Having read this waiver and knowing these facts and in consideration of your acceptance of my application for membership, I, for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the Barefoot Runners Society®, LLC, any of the Barefoot Runners Society® chapters, and all supporters, sponsors, their representatives, and successors from all claims or liabilities of any kind, arising out of my participation in these club activities even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the person(s) named in this waiver.
