MatSu Relay

In consideration for my registration in the 2021 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 via PayPal, or by check. If you elect to pay by check, you will be sent an invoice by e-mail 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. The parent or legal guardian of any participant not yet eighteen (18) must sign the waiver of liability along with the participant. Any potential participant under age 14 MUST have approval from the Race Director.

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

  • Option #1- Supply volunteers: Each team will supply two (2) volunteers. The minimum age for a volunteer is 18 years old, or 14 with accompanying adult volunteer. Volunteers will have the opportunity to choose their preferred assignment, but will not have guarantees of receiving it. Assignments can be anywhere along the route and at any time during the relay. I understand that if my volunteers do not show up on time, my team may 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/or face a cash penalty, and our team agrees we will not continue.
  • Option #2-  "HIRE A VOLUNTEER" - 100% of funds go directly to a local non-profit organization who will supply volunteers as a fund-raising opportunity for their organization. Support our local communities and the non-profit organizations that participate in the race and take the stress out of finding volunteers.

Please initial your understanding and agreement of the volunteer requirement.

5. I understand my team must be able to complete the course within the 10-hour time limit. If our team projects a slower pace then this, special arrangements will be made at the race director's discretion.

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

6. I understand that once registration is paid, the registration fee is non-refundable & non-transferable. A new captain can be designated. I also understand that waivers (Acknowledgment And Assumption Of Risk And Release And Indemnity Agreement) will need to be signed and submitted by all participants (runners, volunteers and van drivers if present).

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. If the event is truncated and cancelled for such reasons, partial refunds and/or deferments will be made available.

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

7. RISK ACCEPTANCE: I understand that the course for the MSR is held on public roads - there are no road closures and generally no additional traffic control. Wildlife encounters are a possibility. I understand that portions of the MSR route are rural and that 911 emergency treatment will not be immediately available. I acknowledge that as team captain, I must make all members of my team aware of these risks.

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 in areas of the MSR route.

8. I understand that as the captain I am responsible for informing my team of the rules of the MSR as stated in the Race Guide, and that infractions by individuals will result in penalties and/or disqualifications against the team as a whole. I also understand that all participants are still subject to all state and local laws for vehicles, pedestrians, and general behavior.

Please initial your responsibility to read and abide by the Race Guide and agreement to be held to all rules and penalties. You also agree that if your team is disqualified for any infraction, your team will depart from the race in an orderly manner.
