EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY
Participants in an ordinary marathon are easily injured. Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! organizers therefore recommend that you get a thorough medical check-up, and adequate insurance cover, prior to participating in any of the run or bike events. The above is also the reason for the following terms and conditions, including in particular the exclusion of liability in clauses 2 – 3.
2. Participation at your own risk
By joining Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! you accept that your participation in the running or Bike4Kids! event is at your own responsibility and your own risk in every respect.
You accept that you cannot claim any kind of damages, indemnification or any other compensation for personal injury, damage to property or any other loss, including any kind of indirect loss in connection with your participation in the marathon, from Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! organizers, sponsors, staff or partners, unless you are subjected to any kind of injury or loss due to gross negligence on the part of Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! organizers or their employees. Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! cannot be held liable for negligence displayed by independently participating third parties or the local authorities prior to, during, or after the run/bike.
If you are injured in any way due to your participation in Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! event, and as a result are unable to go through with your stay in Cambodia as planned, you are also prevented from claiming damages, indemnification or any other kind of compensation.
3. Medical help
Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! will ensure that qualified medial professionals are on hand to assist competitors during the running and bike events . However, if any treatment is not or cannot be carried out by these medical personnel, it will be a matter between you, the local medical services, and your travel insurance. You cannot hold the Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! organizers responsible for any errors or any negligence caused by local medical personnel.
If the medical staff or other assistants in the running and bike events advise any competitor against continuing the race due to medical concerns, the person in question will be advised to withdraw from the run or bike. Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! does not undertake any responsibility for such a decision.
It is highly recommended that all participants take out adequate personal and travel insurance before entering the Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! event. Such insurance cannot be taken out in Cambodia, and must be purchased before arriving in the country.
Without the assistance and support of sponsors of the Angkor Wat Bike4Kids!, such a race would not be possible. Therefore, in order to protect their interests and investment, any competitor wishing to wear or carry any form of advertising, other than normal clothing logos, must obtain written permission from the Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! in advance of the race date.
6. Film & video
Family, friends and other spectators are very welcome to take photographs or make video recordings for private use. Professional photographers must obtain written permission from Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! organizers prior to the race. All rights in relation to the Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! name and logo are the property of Angkor Wat Bike4Kids!, and permission to use the name Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! or pictures from the event for commercial purposes, must be obtained in writing from Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! prior to use.
7. The Cambodian authorities
Without the good will of the Cambodian authorities, Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! would not be possible. Traffic control and medical aid are some of the favors that the Cambodian authorities perform to help the success of the Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! event.
Therefore, all participants must respect any request from the Cambodian police or local authorities. Any hostile confrontation between runners or bikers and local authorities would be an enormous embarrassment to Angkor Wat Bike4Kids!, and could result in cancellation of the event or like consequences.
In Cambodia, disputes are rarely settled through direct confrontation and any Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! competitor seeking to settle a dispute face to face with a police officer or local authority, risks losing his entry and will face a massive financial claim for compensation from the Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! organizers. Likewise, respect should be shown for the citizens of Cambodia for their help and generosity in enabling this race to take place.
8. Force majeure
In the event of any situation outside the organizers control, such as a political unrest, weather or like conditions the following will happen:
1. Should the incident occur before departure to Cambodia, the trip will be cancelled and the payment refunded. If possible, all participants will be offered an alternative race date.
2. In case the incident occurs after arrival in Cambodia, there will be no refund of payment but as many elements on the itinerary will be carried through as planned, with changes in the details of the program where necessary.
9. Additional notes
These conditions, in particular the exclusions of liability in clauses 2 – 3, form part of your agreement with Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! organizers in connection with the Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! event.
10. Choice of law and venue
By joining the Angkor Wat Bike4Kids! event, you accept that any dispute in relation to your participation in the run will be subject to Cambodian law.
