We are so glad you will be joining us and bringing the Houston Half Marathon/10k to life. Without your support, we could not bring
this fabulous event to the running community of Houston. We, along with
the Houston Striders, are helping raise funds for the Houston Parks and
Recreation Department and Memorial Park Conservancy as well as numerous other local non-profits.
Once you have signed up, you will receive an email confirmation. Plus, I
will be reaching out to you closer to your volunteer date to give you
updated times and details.
We cannot thank you enough for joining us in the production of the Houston Half Marathon and 10k.

I agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Released Parties from any and all claims, causes of action, damages, losses (economic and non-economic) and liabilities of every kind (collectively, “Claims”), including but not limited to expenses incurred, attorney’s fees and litigation expenses, arising out of or resulting from, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, (i) my breach or failure to abide by any part of this Waiver Agreement (ii) and/or my actions or inactions which cause injury or damage to any other person and/or (iii) the death, personal injury, or property damage which may arise out of, result from, or relate to my participation in, or my traveling to or from the Event, including but not limited to any Claims for theft, damage to any equipment, negligence, partial or permanent disability, Claims relating to the provision of first aid, medical care, medical treatment, or medical decisions (at the Event or elsewhere), and any Claims for medical or hospital expenses.
I acknowledge that I am aware of the inherent risk of volunteering at an athletic event of this type.
