4. CONTRACT OF PARTICIPATION
I, as a participant in the 2012 25th Izena 88 Triathlon (October 21, 2012, henceforth referred as The Triathlon), swear to the following
articles.

Duty to Observe the Rules and Regulations
As the Triathlon makes use of public roadways, facilities, and coastal areas etc., I promise to observe the general traffic laws as well
as all the guidelines, rules and regulations put forward by the sponsors of the Triathlon (henceforth written as the Sponsors.) I also
promise to watch out for my own safety and health.

If I notice any abnormality or sickness during the Triathlon, I promise to withdraw from the Triathlon.

Understanding of the Nature of Competition, and Responsibility of Self-Management
I, with experience of triathlon competition or related sports, recognize that competition consists of a combination of sports conducted
in different environments which subject the physical condition of athletes to sudden and drastic changes. Furthermore, because the
course of the triathlon is set up in an unstable outdoor environment over a very wide area, I fully understand that obstacles to first
aid/or rescue in emergency situation is highly possible.

I am at present, in good health and I do not foresee any health problems of any kind while participating in the triathlon. In addition, I
have had a complete physical examination by a practicing medical doctor and been pronounced in good health within the last year.

I swear to report any allergies, unusual physical conditions, or religious or philosophical beliefs that would affect any medical
treatment given to me directly to Medical Division of the Triathlon in writing, prior to The Triathlon. I agree to furnish the Triathlon
Office with papers documenting a recent physical examination, including an electrocardiogram and stress test if am asked.

Removal from Competition and the Handling of Emergency Situations
I, if judged by the Sponsors and marshals of the competition to be a hindrance to the continuation of the Triathlon, will accept orders
for my removal from competition. If I am injured, involved in an accident, or suddenly fall ill, I will accept the measures taken by the
Sponsors and /or doctors. I will raise no objections to any emergency measures taken, and will not protest any results of the said
emergency measures.

Exemption from Responsibility for Accident or Death of the Sponsor of the Triathlon
I will not hold the Triathlon, or it's Sponsor responsible in any way what so ever in the event that I am injured or killed during the
Triathlon or any of its incidental events. I consent that any compensation due to accident or injury be paid to me within the guideline
of the Triathlon accident insurance policy. Hence I swear that there will be absolutely no legal action and/or demands for
compensation of any kind from myself, my benefactors, my next of kin, my relatives, the manager of my estate, or the executor of my
last will and testament.

Exemption from Responsibility for "Acts of God" of the Sponsor of the Triathlon
I swear that I will make absolutely no demands relating to compensation for fees necessary for the participation in the Triathlon, or
hold the Sponsor liable for the loss or damage of any implements for the cancellation of the triathlon, any change in the events
therein, or the loss or damage of any implements that will prevent an athlete from participating the Triathlon or will be an obstacles to
participate in the Triathlon; due to any changes in the environment which are not hospitable to competition.

Public and Commercial use of Images and Data connected with the Triathlon and Triathletes
I consent that the use of my image, and personal data such as name, age, address, and athletic history, etc., in all Triathlon
publications, news reports, and informational media with the understanding that they may be used publicly and commercially by
organizations with affiliations to the Sponsor.

Bystanders Consent and Exclusive Jurisdiction
I, my family, my relatives, and/or my legal guardians approve of the contents of the Triathlon based upon this contract. I, my family,
my relatives, and/or my legal guardians consent to my participation in the Triathlon. If law case arises related to Triathlon, primary
exclusive jurisdiction shall be " Naha Local Court" and in conformity with Japanese Laws.

*NOTE: It is very difficult to get lodging on Izena. Most triathletes reserve rooms far in advance. English Tri Help will secure
lodging in the Civic Center, which features shared rooms with futons, a kitchen, several shared bath and restrooms, and a central
meeting/dining room. Pre-ordered family-style meals are also available at the Civic Center for an extra fee.
