Someone is going to die with this one. I mean, really?

I am just not tough enough for this...

Can any lawyers speak to this stuff? At what point will these things get shut down due to lawsuits?

Did the participants sign a waiver? Make it ironclad.

That picture looks like she is drowning in the blood of other participants.

I always wonder how ironclad an agreement actually can be. I mean, there are always ways around it, especially when a jury is involved.

They could add language stating AAA arbitration agreed to . . . and here you go, Googled a race waiver, and one of first things to come up is the Tough Mudder form, which includes this clause:

Mediation and Arbitration:
In the event of a legal issue, I agree to engage in good faith efforts to mediate any dispute that might arise. Any agreement reached will be formalized by a written contractual agreement at that time. Should the issue not be resolved by mediation, I agree that all disputes, controversies, or claims arising out of my participation in the TM event shall be submitted to binding arbitration in accordance with the applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect. The cost of such action shall be shared equally by the parties.

Looks like a good way to get a staph infection. What the wrong with these people?
