In consideration of my participation in the virtual race and related activities identified as Global Energy Race to be held virtually from October 4 to 10th 2021 (the “Event”) organized by Corporativo Bimbo, S.A. de C.V. (the “Organizer”), I acknowledge and agree as follows:
I acknowledge that running in an event that is organized as a virtual activity where I run on my own, at a date and time of my choosing, in a location and running route of my choosing, which will not have any support or security measures in place by the Organizer is a potentially hazardous activity, which could result in personal injury, property loss or damage, or death. I further acknowledge that I am participating in the Event by my own free will and at my own personal risk. I will not participate in the Event unless I am medically able and properly trained, and by signing this Waiver, I certify that I am medically able to participate in the Event, and I am in good health and properly trained.
