Waiver and Release of Liability
In return for receiving permission from American Trails for allowing me to participate as a volunteer as a National Recreation Trail (NRT) Trail Ambassador, I agree to assume all risks of loss and injury that may arise out of my participation. And, I agree to waive any and all claims against them and the other parties described below.
I hereby release, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless American Trails, the NRT Trail Ambassador program participants, and anyone else involved with this project and their respective agents, representatives, officers, employees, successors, assigns and insurers, hereinafter referred to collectively as "the Released Parties," from any and all liability, claims, demands, or actions or causes of action whatsoever, arising out of damage, loss or injury to my person or property, whether anticipated or unanticipated, while participating in any of the activities contemplated by this agreement, whether such damage, loss, or injury results from the negligence of the Released Parties, their respective agents, officers, employees, successors, assigns, and insurers or from some other cause.
This release and agreement shall be binding upon me, my heirs, successors, assigns, administrators, and executors. I expressly acknowledge, represent, and agree that expressly identifying and explicitly naming the respective agents, representatives, officers, employees, successors, assigns and insurers of the parties released, all of whom I intend to be released by this document, is a practical impossibility for the parties. I expressly acknowledge that, for good and valuable consideration, the terms "respective agents, representatives, officers, employees, successors, assigns, and insurers,” however used in this Waiver and Release Agreement, are expressly and explicitly intended to include all and each and every individual, person, firm, entity, and corporation who are now, or at any time may have been included in the specifically listed categories.
I am aware of these and other risks and hazards inherent in participating in this program as an NRT Trail Ambassador and the inherent danger on trails, and hereby assume sole responsibility for all such risks and hazards. In addition, I waive any right to claim compensation in exchange for participating in the program and I agree to abide by the Code of Conduct (see below) of American Trails while participating in the NRT Trail Ambassador Program.
I hereby acknowledge that I have read, understood, and voluntarily agreed to the foregoing waiver and release agreement.
