Knowing these facts and in consideration of my entry acceptance, admission to and/or participation in the Orange City Tulip Festival Road Race/Tour de Tulips bike ride and its related events, I for myself, spouse, children, heirs, next of kin, executors, assigns and anyone acting on my behalf, RELEASE, WAIVER, DISCHARGE, COVENANT NOT TO SUE AND AGREE TO HOLD Friends of the Festival, Orange City Tulip Festival and City of Orange City, subsidiaries and affiliated entities; Orange City Tulip Festival Road Race/Tour de Tulips bike ride sponsors and participating clubs, communities and organizations; Orange City Tulip Festival Road Race/Tour de Tulips bike ride officials, emergency and support personnel, volunteers and their representatives; persons and entities that provide event planning, recommendations, advice or services relating to matters such as, but not limited to, route selection, design or maintenance, risk management, safety and first aid; all property owners, law enforcement agencies and governmental or public entities, including without limitation the State of Iowa, its counties, cities and special districts; and the officers, directors, employees, representatives, agents, and successors and assigns, of all of the above, HARMLESS FROM ANY AND ALL LOSSES, DAMAGES, INJURIES, COSTS, EXPENSES, LIABILITIES, CLAIMS, DEMANDS AND ACTIONS OF ANY AND EVERY KIND, INCLUDING,BUT NOT LIMITED TO, CLAIMS OF NEGLIGENCE, I have, may have or may hereafter accrue against the released parties directly or indirectly arising out of or relating in any respect to my attending or participating in the Orange City Tulip Festival Road Race/Tour de Tulips bike ride and/or any related events. Without limiting the foregoing, my waiver and release of all losses, damages, costs, expenses, claims, demands, actions and liabilities shall include without limitation, any personal injury, accident, illness or death and any property damage or loss that may be: (a) caused by any act, or failure to act, by the above-identified persons and entities, including without limitation, their negligence, errors, omissions, fault, failure to enforce rules, and/or conditions of the routes and/or event premises, and/or (b) sustained by me before, during or after the Orange City Tulip Festival Road Race/Tour de Tulips bike ride and its related events.
