BY SIGNING THIS FORM, I AM RELEASING IDAHO TRAILS ASSOCIATION FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY IN THE EVENT MY CHILD IS INJURED, DAMAGED OR KILLED WHILE PARTICIPATING IN THIS PROJECT OR EVENT SPONSORED BY IDAHO TRAILS ASSOCIATION.

I UNDERSTAND THAT I COULD HAVE THIS RELEASE REVIEWED BY A LAWYER OF MY CHOICE.
Understanding the foregoing paragraph, I wish for my child to participate in this project sponsored by Idaho Trails Association (ITA). I am aware that events and projects sponsored by ITA may involve hiking, backpacking, camping, trail games and other activities (including but not limited to running, jumping, light contact sports); construction and maintenance of trails and recreation facilities, and that participating in or observing these events or projects poses certain dangers, including, but not limited to, the hazards of traveling in and hiking in wilderness and steep mountainous terrain; using hand tools, (and of hiking and working in the proximity of such tools when used by others); injury or illness in remote places without medical aid; lifting and working on often narrow and precipitous trails; and unforeseen events caused by the forces of nature. In consideration for permitting my child to participate in projects sponsored by ITA, I, for my family, my estate, and myself, hereby waive any right of recovery and claims of liability against ITA, its officers, employees and agents from any claims made by others for personal injury or property damage allegedly caused by me. Further, I will hold ITA harmless in any loss or damages resulting from the forgoing waiver and release. This Release and Indemnity Agreement is a contract, not a mere recital and thus it shall remain in effect for all projects sponsored by ITA in which my child participates. I also give permission for my child to be photographed/filmed and have his or her image used by ITA and their partner agencies, without royalty or compensation.
As Parent/Guardian, I am signing on behalf of a minor, I further agree to HOLD HARMLESS AND INDEMNIFY Idaho Trails Association and its members form all liability, claims and causes of action which the minor may have arising from the minor’s participation in activities.
