RACE BIB
•   Attach your race bib securely to your shirt so that we can identify you and you can easily locate your photos
    post-event.
•   We also suggest writing your bib number onto your forearms and forehead with markers provided so that our
    official photographers will be able to identify you.
•   You must have an official bib to access the start area. There will be different bibs for 5km and 10km runners to
    allow the course marshals to identify you on the course. Only runners wearing a 10km bib will be permitted
    access to the 10km course.
•   Your free drink token will be attached to your bib so make sure it’s fastened securely as no additional drink
    tokens will be provided if you lose your bib.

•   If for some reason you are running late to the event and miss your designated wave time, you may run in a later
    wave time. However no participants will be permitted to run in an earlier wave time.

THE COURSE & SAFETY INFORMATION
•   The venue is very rocky and much of the course is on uneven ground. Protect your ankles.
•   The course and obstacles will be clearly marked and signposted. Please obey the directions of course marshals
    at all times.
•   Slower participants are requested to keep left on the course to allow faster participants to easily pass.
•   You don’t have to take part in any of the obstacles you're not comfortable with. You have as long as you like to
    complete the course, there are no time restrictions.
•   Participants must be able to swim 50m unaided as there will be a number of water obstacles along the course.
    There will be lifeguards stationed at these obstacles for participants’ safety. Only strong swimmers may do the
    water obstacles and any non-swimmers or nervous swimmers can bypass the obstacle, which we highly
    recommend doing.
•   Due to the nature of some of the obstacles please expect some queues at certain obstacles along the course.
    Please be patient and follow any directions given to you by the course marshals.
•   There will be some toilets along the course.
•   There will be a number of drink stations along the course. Participants are encouraged to supplement this with
    personal hydration systems and additional energy sources if required.
•   Due to weather and other factors, it is possible that the course and obstacles may change.
•   The electric shock obstacle does conduct a shock of 10,000 volts. Please be advised that this obstacle may be
    dangerous if you have certain health conditions i.e a heart condition, epilepsy or a pacemaker. If in doubt,
    bypass this obstacle.
•   Participants enter the event entirely at their own risk, as per the details included in the waiver form.
•   All participants must sign a waiver in order to take part.
•   First aid personnel will be present at the event.
•   The course marshals will have radio communication with first aid personnel so please inform the course marshal
    if you or a fellow participant requires first aid assistance.
•   Runners can bypass any obstacles without penalty.
•   No diving into any water or mud under any circumstances.

RESULTS
•   The Stampede is untimed. Participants will not have their finish times recorded.
•   You can time yourself or there will be a clock at the finish line so you can gauge your finish time based on your
    start time.
•   If you want a medal, then bring your own. The Stampede is all about having fun, challenging yourself, teamwork
    and having a laugh along the way. It’s not about clocking the fastest time. Don’t expect The Stampede to be a
    ridiculously hard challenge. Although if you do want to push yourself, you can purchase an option to run
    unlimited laps of the course.

WASHING OFF
Please be advised that a cold water rinse off station and change tent will be available at the event. Due to the volume
of people needing to rinse off after the event all participants are requested to limit their showering time to a
maximum of 2 minutes.


THE STAMPEDE AFTER PARTY PRESENTED BY TOOHEYS EXTRA DRY
Stick around after your run and unwind at The Stampede After Party presented by Tooheys Extra
Dry. Enjoy a cool, crisp Tooheys Extra Dry as you share your tales of Stampede survival with your
mates. There’s a DJ all day too. If you are planning on drinking at the event, make sure you assign a
designated driver.

THE STAMPEDE MERCHANDISE
Check out The Stampede's awesome range of branded gear. There are some awesome hoodies, singlets, hats, beer
coolers and more available for sale from the merchandise tent.

LA TOMATINA (TOMATO FIGHT) AT THE STAMPEDE
Don’t miss La Tomatina (that’s Spanish for “crazy tomato fight”) at The Stampede. Why? Because it’s fun and a little
bit crazy! You’ve seen the annual La Tomatina in Spain, now it’s your turn to take part right here in Australia,
Stampede-style! There will be a few hundred kilos of squishy tomatoes to throw at one another in an enclosed area.
No head shots! La Tomatina will be held at 2pm. Meet at the start line if you wish to take part.

EVENT PHOTOGRAPHY
•   The team from Supersport Images will be snapping all the action on the day and a
    link to the photos will be available on The Stampede website approximately 5
    days after the event for you to view and purchase. There are tens of thousands of
    images to process and upload after the event, so please be patient with this
    process.
•   So that the photographers can easily identify you, ensure your bib is on the front of your body.
•   So that you can easily locate your photos after the event, we STRONGLY recommend writing your bib number
    on your arms and forehead with the markers provided as many bibs are lost out on the course. If you don’t have
    a visible bib or number, then it will make it much more difficult to locate your photos.
•   You will be sent an email once the photos are ready to view approximately 5-7 days after the event so please be
    patient.

PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE
The personal accident insurance arranged for this event is a basic policy and as such it is strongly recommended that
all participants take out their own private health insurance and income protection insurance before participating in
the event.

    with participants or attempt to do any of the obstacles.

    vehicle.

•   The bar will be selling alcohol to those aged 18 years and over from 10am until approximately 5:30pm. Bring
    photo ID with you if you wish to purchase alcohol.
•   All participants will receive their choice of a free beer (over 18s only) or bottled water after their run. Free
    drinks are to be collected from and consumed in the bar area.
•   No drinking before your run. If you booze, you lose!

IMPORTANT NOTICE
If you receive a cut or graze at the event and signs of infection appear following the event, please seek urgent
medical attention.
     Tetanus is a severe disease that can result in serious illness and death. Tetanus vaccination protects against the
disease even when vaccination takes place shortly after possible exposure. Infection may occur after minor injury
(sometimes unnoticed punctures to the skin that are contaminated with soil, dust or manure etc.) or after major
injuries such as open fractures, dirty or deep penetrating wounds, and burns. Tetanus is not passed on from one
person to another.
     The Stampede and WA Health Department recommend all participants are up-to-date with their tetanus
vaccination either before the event or shortly after.

EVENT CANCELLATION
The event will go ahead rain, hail or glorious sunshine however the event promoter reserves the right to cancel or
postpone the event on the day in the case of dangerous weather or for any other reason.

If the event has to be cancelled due to extreme weather conditions, natural disaster, acts of god, terrorism, war or
any other reason deemed reasonable by the event organisers, the event will be re-scheduled where possible. No
refunds will be issued, however the credit will be transferred to the new event date.

In the unlikely event that the event has to be cancelled or postponed, all participants will be contacted by email and

I understand that, by signing below, I am legally agreeing to all of the following statements in exchange for being permitted to participate in The Stampede.
1.    I acknowledge and accept that participating in The Stampede is an inherently dangerous activity that represents a significant risk of physical injury or harm, which will involve
      all manner of extreme obstacles and activities (both natural and man made), including but not limited to climbing, rope swings, running, swimming, extended submersion
      under water, mud and water activities, running amongst cows, being exposed to electric shocks and other obviously or inherently risky activities (Dangerous Activities).
2.    I understand and agree that participation in the Dangerous Activities that comprise the Stampede, separately and cumulatively, constitute a “dangerous recreational activity”
      under the Civil Liability Act 2002 (WA) and that participation in The Stampede involves a significant risk of physical or mental harm or injury (including permanent disability
      and/or death). I am aware of the hazards involved in participating in The Stampede, which due to the nature of the event include (but are not limited to), vehicle and
      pedestrian traffic, actions of participants and spectators, weather conditions, animals and wildlife, hypothermia, heat exhaustion, personal injury, slippery and uneven
      surfaces, breakages or defects in the event site or equipment, or the failure or unsuitability of a participant’s equipment (including my own). I acknowledge and accept that
      injury may result not only from my actions (including physical exertion) but also from the actions, omissions or negligence of other people in connection with the Stampede.
3.    I warrant I have sufficient and necessary competence, experience and equipment to participate in all aspects of The Stampede in a manner safe to myself and others. I
      acknowledge that further risks of participating in the event include, but are not limited to, the remoteness of the event from medical aid and professional assistance.
4.    I understand that I am strongly advised to consult a medical practitioner prior to participating in The Stampede, especially if I am pregnant, disabled, or have recently suffered
      any illness, injury or impairment. I agree that it is my responsibility to determine whether I am sufficiently fit, healthy, skilled and physically trained (including being able to
      swim 50 meters) to safely participate in The Stampede, and I undertake to withdraw from The Stampede and not participate if on the date of the event I am not in good health
      and proper physical condition. I warrant that I have no physical, medical or mental conditions of which I am aware or should be aware that would affect my ability to safely
      participate in The Stampede, or that would result in my participation creating a risk of danger to myself or others, which is greater than the risk assumed by a healthy person of
      a similar age as me. I further warrant I have not been advised or cautioned by a medical practitioner not to participate in the event.
5.    I understand and agree that in the first instance I am responsible for the provision of first aid to myself and those around me. I am responsible for my and my team’s timely
      removal from the course to a medical facility, if needs be. I also give my consent to receive any first aid and medical treatment which may be deemed advisable in the event of
      accident, injury and/or illness as a result of my involvement in The Stampede.
6.    I acknowledge that Valley Stampede Pty Ltd is not the owner of the event site, which may include public land, and understand and agree that the owner of the event site owes
      no duty of care or contractual obligations to me.
7.    I acknowledge and accept that there is a risk of loss, theft, damage and destruction to my personal property at the event. I agree that I am solely responsible for my personal
      possessions and equipment before, during and after the event.
8.    In consideration of being allowed to participate in The Stampede, I (on my own behalf and on behalf of my executors, administrators, heirs, next of kin, successors and assigns):
     (a)    to the maximum extent permitted by law, agree that Valley Stampede Pty Ltd including its officers employees, agents, events sponsors, volunteers, community
            organisations, all State, Federal and Local Government authorities in which jurisdiction the event may be staged and the owners, licensees or occupiers of any property
            which I enter and their respective officers, directors, employees, independent contractors, sponsors, representatives, agents, members and volunteers, including medical
            and paramedical personnel are not liable to any person whether in contract, tort, under statute or otherwise for any injury, loss, damage, death, economic loss
            whatsoever suffered by me, whether consequential, direct or indirect, caused by or connected with my participation in the activity (collectively referred to as the “harm”),
            including harm suffered by me due to any person’s negligence; and
     (b)    irrevocably indemnify and hold harmless the persons or entities mentioned in paragraph 8.(a) (“the organisers”) from any and all liabilities, claims or actions (including for
            negligence) whatever or however caused, arising as a result or in connection with, directly or indirectly, my participation in and travelling to and from the event, including
            any claim by my (or my team’s) support crew or any person assisting me or my team.
9.    I accept the event policies relating to communications, search, rescue and medical aid arrangements and all other policies published by the organisers and each of which will be
      made available on my request.
10. I understand that the organisers’ public liability insurance is limited and does not (and is not required by me to) cover or protect me from any injury or damage I cause, whether
      to me or to others, or any loss I sustain or caused by me whilst participating in the event (and before and after the event) and I am strongly advised to obtain, and I remain
      responsible for obtaining, my own insurances and cover (including full private health insurance and adequate income protection insurance).
11. I understand that the organisers reserve the right to alter the advertised course, close or withdraw obstacles, to postpone, reschedule or cancel the event at the organisers’
      sole discretion, including for the following reasons: if natural or man-made emergencies make administering the event unreasonable due to weather conditions, natural
      disaster, acts of god, terrorism, war or any other reason (at the organisers’ sole discretion), and that my entry fee will be non-refundable.
12. I agree to act appropriately at all times at the event, including obeying all laws, regulations, event rules and directions of officials and I understand that my entry may be voided
      if through my actions or behaviour, in the opinions of the organisers, I have broken these rules, any law or regulation or brought the event into disrepute. I further understand
      that the organisers reserve the right to reject any entry without having to justify or give reasons for their actions.
13. I grant permission to Valley Stampede Pty Ltd (and its affiliates or contractors) to record and photograph my involvement in the event (the “Recordings”) and to use such
      Recordings (including all content on those Recordings) in any media and for any purpose without my consent or crediting me and without payment and/or compensation to
      me. The Recordings are the sole property of Valley Stampede Pty Ltd to use for any purpose, including but not limited to promoting, advertising and marketing activities. To
      the extent I may own the Recordings or any content in the Recordings, I hereby assign the Recordings and such content to Valley Stampede Pty Ltd.
14. I understand that this participant waiver constitutes a “risk warning” under the Civil Liability Act 2002 (WA).

I have read and fully understand the above important information, warning of risk, assumption of risk, waiver and release of claims.
