MatSu Relay


In consideration for my registration in the 2018 MatSu Relay (hereinafter MSR"), I understand and agree to the following:

1. As correspondence is exclusively via email, the captain must provide an accurate email address.

2. Payment is due with registration and is made with a credit card (left side of payment page), PayPal account (if you have a PayPal account, they will not accept credit card payment via the credit card link), or by check. If you elect to pay by check, you will be sent an invoice with a due date. Your registration will not be official until your check is received and will be cancelled if payment is not received by due date.

3. The minimum age for participants is fourteen (14) years of age. Participants between the ages of fourteen (14) and eighteen (18), as well as their parent or guardian, must sign the waiver of liability.

4. Any runner substitution or additions made to your 2018 team after September 15th will result in a $10 penalty fee per runner - no exceptions.

5. I understand that my team is responsible for picking one of the two volunteer options:

  • Option #1- Supply volunteers: Each 5-person team will supply one (1) volunteer. The volunteer requirement is waived for High School teams. The minimum age for a volunteer is 16 years old. Volunteers need to be flexible. As the relay route is 52-miles long and takes place continuously throughout the day, the race marshal assignments can be anywhere along the route and at any time during the relay. I understand that if any of our volunteer(s) do not show up on time, my team will receive a time penalty. If our team does not supply the required volunteer(s), I understand we will not be permitted to start. If any of our volunteer(s) do not show up at their selected assignment, I understand our team will be disqualified and our team agrees we will not continue.
  • Option #2- Charity Volunteer Hire - funds will go to local non-profit organizations who will supply volunteers as a fund-raising opportunity for their organization. This is a much easier way to go - you don't have to find volunteers, you don't have to worry about their plans changing the week of the relay and not being available to help you out, and you won't have to worry about what time of day or night their assignment will be. Plus, you will be making a much appreciated donation to a local non-profit organization.

Please initial your understanding and agreement of the volunteer requirement.

6. I understand my team must be able to complete the course within the 9-hour (9:00) time limit (a team average of a 10 1/2 minute per mile pace).

Please initial your understanding and agreement of the team time restriction.

7. I understand that once registration is paid for, the registration fee is non-refundable, non-transferable, and can not be deferred. However, a new captain can be designated from within the team roster. I also understand that waivers (Acknowledgment And Assumption Of Risk And Release And Indemnity Agreement) will need to be signed and submitted by all runners and if applicable, volunteers and van drivers.

Please initial your understanding and agreement of the waiver requirement and the refund policy.

8. I understand that the course for the MSR is held on public roads - there are no road closures, traffic control, or aid stations. Teams are self-supporting! All members of your team must be made aware that there will be vehicle traffic at all times and several of the Exchange Points are along busy roads. I also understand and will inform my team that any road hazards along the course are NOT marked, the route goes through farmland and unpopulated areas where wildlife lives, and that there are cattle guards and areas of open range (livestock not fenced in) so caution is required from all runners and drivers.

In consideration of this, North by Northwest Relays will do everything in its power to hold the relay as advertised, but due to the nature of the event, extenuating circumstances not under the control of the event organizers, may necessitate course changes, or even cancellation for the safety of the participants. These circumstances include, but are not limited to: weather and other forces of nature, last minute road closures and construction, floods, or forest fires. As the event has already had many expenses that can not be recouped, if any of these events do occur, I accept that no refunds, credits, or discounts for future races will be offered.
 

Please initial your understanding and agreement of the public nature of the roads of the MSR course, and of the rural location and conditions that exist on and in the area of the MSR route, and possible course changes or event cancellation if circumstances call for it.

9. I understand that as the captain I am responsible for informing my team of the rules of the MSR, that everyone on the team will follow them, that any costumes or van decorations will be in good taste, and for the behavior of my team. This includes, but is not limited to respect for all participants and volunteers, quiet zones in or near residential areas, that team vehicles and runners are not exempt from state and local traffic laws, and that private property is being used by the MSR and must be respected. Failure to abide by the relay rules may, at the discretion of the race director, result in immediate disqualification. 

Please initial your understanding and agreement of team etiquette & needing to follow traffic laws. You also agree that if your team is disqualified for any rule infractions, your team will depart from the race in an orderly manner.

*** Teams who selected the option to supply their volunteers may choose to make a donation for individual non-profit volunteers if they are having problems filling their requirement. This option is only available if non-profit volunteers are available. 

As the Captain entering a team into the MatSu Relay, I agree to and understand all that has been stated above.
