How to prepare for a 5K

Here are two great articles to help you train prior to the 5K and prepare for the day of the 5K.
 

FREE lunch after the 5K

We all walk together, but you can stop whenever. Our event is not a race, and you do not need to complete the entire walk if unable. The walk concludes when the final walker crosses the finish line. Upon finishing the walk, please join us for FREE food and beverages.
 

Weather/Cancellation Policy

We will do all we can to make sure our race is produced as planned, but the safety of our participants is always our top priority. If we have to cancel because of weather or circumstances outside our control, we will notify everyone in advance.

    ASSUMPTION OF RISK, WAIVER OF LIABILITY,

    AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT

    PARTICIPANTS: READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING. THIS DOCUMENT HAS LEGAL CONSEQUENCES AND WILL AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND MAY ELIMINATE YOUR ABILITY TO BRING FUTURE LEGAL ACTIONS.

    Parties: “Released Parties” include THE WORSHIP CENTER and its directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, insurers, spectators, co-participants, equipment suppliers, and volunteers; North Hills and its directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, insurers, equipment suppliers, and volunteers; all THE WORSHIP CENTER event sponsors, organizers, promoters, directors, officials, property owners, and advertisers; governmental bodies and/or municipal agencies whose property and/or personnel are used; and any or all parent, subsidiary or affiliate companies, licensees, officers, directors, partners, board members, supervisors, insurers, agents, equipment suppliers, and representatives of any of the foregoing.
    “Releasing Parties” include: the participant as well as participant’s spouse, children, parents, guardians, heirs, next of kin, and any legal or personal representatives, executors, administrators, successors and assigns, or anyone else who might claim or sue on participant’s behalf.
     

     
    Assumption of Inherent Risks: I acknowledge that the 5k event (hereinafter referred to as the “Event”) is an extreme test of my physical and mental limits that carries with it inherent risks of physical injury, which risks may be known or unknown. “Inherent Risks” are risks, both known and unknown, that cannot be eliminated completely (without changing the challenging nature of the Event) regardless of the care and precautions taken by The Worship Center (references to The Worship Center include the limited liability entity and the Released Parties). I also understand that the Event is extremely strenuous and includes the accompanying risks and dangers generally present in activities designed to stress the body and test mental and physical endurance and stamina. I understand that these hazards may be magnified due to the fact that the Event is often conducted under what may be less than ideal conditions and circumstances.
     
    I understand and acknowledge that the Inherent Risks include, but are not limited to: 1) contact or collision with persons or objects (e.g., collision with spectators or course personnel), contact with other participants, contact or collision with motor vehicles or machinery, and contact with natural or man-made fixed objects; 2) encounters with obstacles (e.g., road and surface hazards); 3) equipment-related hazards (e.g., broken, defective or inadequate competition equipment, unexpected equipment failure, imperfect course conditions); 4) weather-related hazards (e.g., extreme heat, extreme cold, humidity, ice, rain, fog); 5) inadequate or negligent first aid and/or emergency measures; 6) judgment- and/or behavior-related problems (e.g., erratic or inappropriate co-participant or spectator behavior, erratic or inappropriate behavior by the participant, errors in judgment by personnel working the event); and 7) natural hazards (e.g. uneven terrain, rock falls, lightning strikes, earthquakes, wildlife attacks, contact with poisonous and/or dangerous flora and fauna).
    I further understand and acknowledge that any of these risk and others, not specifically named or known, may cause injury or injuries that may be categorized as minor, serious, or catastrophic. “Minor injuries” are common and include, but are not limited to: scrapes, bruises, sprains, strains, muscle tension and soreness, nausea, cuts, sunburn, abrasions, grazes, lacerations, and contusions. “Serious injuries” are less common, but do sometimes occur. They include but are not limited to property loss or damage, broken bones, fractures, torn or strained ligaments and tendons, concussions, exposure, dehydration, heat exhaustion and other heat-related illnesses, mental stress or exhaustion, infection, vomiting, dislocations, hyperthermia, hypothermia, anemia, electrolyte imbalance, loss of consciousness, syncope, dizziness, fainting, seizures, and/or injury, and neurological disorders/pain. “Catastrophic injuries” are rare; however, we feel that our participants should be aware of the possibility. These injuries can include, but are not limited to, permanent disabilities, stroke, single or multiple organ failure or dysfunction, physical damage to organs, spinal injuries, paralysis, heart attack, heart failure, blood cell disorder, brain swelling, and even death.
    I understand that it is my responsibility to consult with my personal physician prior to participating in the Event to ensure that such participation will not pose any unusual risks to my health and well-being.
    I understand that it is my responsibility to inspect the course, facilities, equipment, and areas to be used, and if I believe or become aware that any are unsafe or pose unreasonable risks, I agree to immediately notify appropriate personnel. By participating in the Event, I am acknowledging that I have found the course, facilities, equipment, and areas to be used to be safe and acceptable for participation. I accept full and sole responsibility for the condition and adequacy of my own equipment (shoes, clothing, bikes, skateboards, strollers, skates, and anything else you bring to use during the event).

    I UNDERSTAND FULLY THE INHERENT RISKS OF PARTICIPATING IN THE EVENT AND ASSERT THAT I AM WILLINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATING IN THE EVENT. I HAVE READ THE PRECEDING PARAGRAPHS AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT 1) I KNOW THE NATURE OF THE EVENT; 2) I UNDERSTAND THE DEMANDS OF THIS ACTIVITY RELATIVE TO MY PHYSICAL CONDITION; AND 3) I APPRECIATE THE POTENTIAL IMPACT OF THE TYPES OF INJURIES THAT MAY RESULT FROM THE EVENT. I HEREBY ASSERT THAT I KNOWINGLY ASSUME ALL OF THE INHERENT RISKS OF THE ACTIVITY AND TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY AND ALL DAMAGES, LIABILITIES, LOSSES, OR EXPENSES THAT I MAY INCUR AS A RESULT OF PARTICIPATING IN THE EVENT.
     

     
    Waiver of Liability for Ordinary Negligence: In consideration of being permitted to participate in the Event, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, I (on behalf of the Releasing Parties) hereby forever waive, release, covenant not to sue, and discharge The Worship Center and the other Released Parties from any and all claims resulting from the Inherent Risks of the Event or, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the ordinary negligence of The Worship Center (or other Released Parties) that I may have arising out of my participation in the Event.
    This agreement applies to 1) personal injury (including death) from incidents or illnesses arising from my participation in the Event participation, which includes injury during course inspection, observation, practice runs, the event, medical treatment, and while on the premises (including, but not limited to base area, stands, sidewalks, parking areas, sponsor promotions, restrooms, first-aid tents, and dressing facilities); and 2) any and all claims resulting from damage to, loss of, or theft of property.
     
     
    Indemnification Agreement: In consideration of being permitted to participate in the Event and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, I hereby agree to hold harmless, defend and indemnify The Worship Center (and the other Released Parties) from and against: 1) any and all claims made by me (or any Releasing Party) arising from injury (including death) or loss due to my participation in the Event; and 2) any and all claims of co-participants, rescuers, and others arising from my conduct in the course of my participation in the Event. For the purposes hereof, “claims” includes all actions and causes of action, claims, demands, losses, costs, expenses and damages, including legal fees and related expenses. This indemnity shall survive the expiration or sooner termination of the Event.
     

     
    Other Agreements

    Venue and Jurisdiction: I understand that if Mediation and Arbitration prove unsuccessful and legal action is brought, the appropriate state or federal trial court for the state of North  Carolina has the sole and exclusive jurisdiction and that only the substantive laws of North Carolina shall apply.

    Severability: I understand and agree that this Agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the state of North Carolina and that if any provision shall be found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be severed from this Agreement and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

    Integration: I affirm that this agreement supersedes any and all previous oral or written promises or agreements. I understand that this is the entire Agreement between me and The Worship Center and cannot be modified or changed in any way by representations or statements by any agent or employee of The Worship Center. This Agreement may only be amended by a written document duly executed by all parties.

    Mediation and Arbitration: In the event of a legal issue, I agree to engage in good faith efforts to mediate any dispute that might arise. Any agreement reached will be formalized by a written contractual agreement at that time. Should the issue not be resolved by mediation, I agree that all disputes, controversies, or claims arising out of my participation in the Event or this Agreement shall be submitted to binding arbitration in accordance with the applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect. The cost of such action shall be shared equally by the parties.

    Class Actions: I agree that any arbitration, mediation or legal action shall proceed solely on an individual basis without the right for any claims to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of others. Claims may not be joined or consolidated unless agreed to in writing by all parties.
