2017 HYPOACTIVE MURRAY TO MOYNE TEAM CYCLING EVENT REGISTER

Participation in the HypoActive Murray to Moyne cycle relay 2017 – Information and Registration

Please note that all references to HypoActive refer to the HypoActive Association, and from late 2016, HypoActive Incorporated.

The following information is for potential HypoActive Murray to Moyne (M2M) participants.  It covers what you can expect from the event, your responsibilities, and HypoActive's expectations of all participants.  If you have any suggestions for inclusions or ideas on how we can improve this document, then please let us know - contactus@hypoactive.org

HypoActive Murray to Moyne is an annual cycle relay held in April which covers 520 km, from Echuca to Port Fairy over a 24 hour period.  The team of cyclists consists of type 1 diabetics and is supported by a support crew who also have type 1 diabetes.

The Murray to Moyne is an amazing event where as a first timer you will be welcomed by other team members. Many riders return year after year and will be delighted to guide and encourage new riders. You will get on the bus with strangers and get off after the weekend with around 24 new friends. It is compulsory to have a sense of humour, sense of adventure and be prepared to have a lot of fun.

 

Fundraising

The event raises funds which are split equally between the Diabetes Victoria Camps (DVC) program and HypoActive.  While corporate sponsors do cover some of the costs involved, the remaining cost of the event is deducted from the total amount raised, before the remainder is split equally between DVC and HypoActive.

Each rider will be given access to the EveryDay Hero website to assist with fundraising.  The use of this web site allows for easy tracking of totals raised for each M2M member and makes it easy for donors to make payments via internet.  The target for each rider to fundraise is $1000.

 A blurb about DVC and HypoActive is attached at the end of this document that can be used on the EveryDay Hero website to assist with fundraising.

HypoActive M2M is primarily a fundraising event.  Although it promotes teamwork and friendship, and is a great vehicle for building confidence for exercising while managing type 1 diabetes, we do need riders to fundraise for the causes.  For this reason, any rider who fails to raise at least $500 will be asked to contribute $125 towards the cost of their accommodation, registration, food and travel.

Opportunities to fundraise in addition to the EveryDay Hero website will be provided. Both HypoActive and the M2M team will organise fundraising events and we expect all M2M riders to assist with fundraising activities including Bicycle Network Super-count Sunday in November and Super-count Tuesday in March, and fundraising Sausage Sizzles etc.

The above requirement can be waived for riders who exceed their target amount, but we do expect those that are struggling to meet their targets to participate in our organised fundraising activities.  Any proceeds raised through these events will be attributed equally among any riders helping, so if a Sausage Sizzle raises $500 and there are two riders helping out, then each rider will be deemed to have raised $250 which will contribute to their individual targets.

 

Withdrawal

In the event that you withdraw, all funds raised by you cannot be refunded.

 

Clothing

Riders wishing to obtain race kit consisting of a HypoActive branded short-sleeved jersey and bib shorts to be used during the event can purchase these (currently $209, although prices are subject to change based on what our supplier charges).  In the event that a rider raises at least $500, the cost of the jersey will be refunded to the rider.  In the event that a rider raises at least $750, the cost of both the jersey and bib shorts will be refunded to the rider.

 

Support Crew

While we appreciate the efforts of crew members to fund-raise and welcome their efforts, there is no compulsion for them to do so. We expect support crew members to be working hard all weekend and in recognition of this, support crew members are not required to pay for accommodation or the registration fee.

 

Training

In addition to individual training, there will be regular group rides in Geelong and Melbourne in the lead up to the event, and riders are encouraged to join these to get to know other team members, get advice, and gain experience of riding together.

 

Insurance

It is a condition of being a rider in HypoActive M2M that you obtain appropriate insurance.  Bicycle Network includes insurance in their membership -  https://www.bicyclenetwork.com.au/g... - which will also cover riders in the lead up to the event during training rides, cycle commuting etc. and we recommend that all members acquire membership.

 

FAQ

1) What level of fitness is required?

You need to be able to hold an average pace of 25km for one hour.  There will be training rides prior to the event to assist with building fitness and familiarity with the team, but it is expected that you will also train individually in preparation for the event.  Other members of the team will be happy to provide guidance.

 

2) What kind of bike do I need?

You will need a well-maintained road bike with drop bars.

 

3) I have a special dietary requirement. Will I be catered for?

Just let us know in advance any dietary requirements and we can work out together how we can provide nutrition that is suitable for your needs.

 

4)  I heard something about a shearing shed?

You will need to be prepared to sleep on the floor of the shearing shed at the showgrounds on the Saturday night along with plenty of other snoring cyclists.

 

Preamble.

On  (date……………………………….) I executed a Participation Release and Waiver of Liability Registration Document (The Registration Release Document) before a qualified Legal Practitioner, with a current Practising Certificate, namely, (Mr/Ms..name of practitioner …………………………………….). 

Although this Document is a separate ‘Participant Release and Waiver of Liability Document’ (‘The Participation Release Document’) and is capable of standing on its own, it is nevertheless intended to be read in conjunction with the ‘Registration Release Document’ and to specifically extend its waiver and release provisions to my participation in Hypo Active’s events and activities. 

For the sake of clarity, I specifically confirm that:

  • Prior to witnessing me sign the Registration Release Document (Mr/Ms..name of practitioner …………………………………………………………) fully explained to me the meaning and the legal and practical significance of that Registration Release Document and also of this Participation Release Document that I understand will need to be signed by me on several occasions prior to my participation in various activities and events, from time to time, organised by Hypo Active or in which Hypo Active may be involved.
  • There is deliberately a similarity of language and intent as between this Participation Release Document and the Registration Release Document.
  • Nevertheless, to the extent that it might be interpreted that there is some difference in the meaning and/or significance of language as between this Participation Release Document and the Registration Release Document, such difference is unintended and,
  • It is my wish and intention that the language and meaning of this Participation Release Document and the Registration Release Document be interpreted to maximise the combined scope and effect of both documents.

Participation Waiver and Release of Liability Document

 

The following statement must be signed as a condition of registering.

I acknowledge and am aware that being part of the HypoActive M2M 2017 event including travelling with HypoActive, bicycle riding, and/or being a member of the support crew for the 2017 HypoActive Murray to Moyne event (hereafter referred to as the "Activity") is physically demanding and inherently dangerous involving risk of injury or death, and of loss and damage to personal property. Despite these risks, I wish to participate in the Activity and do so voluntarily.

In consideration of the risk of injury while participating in cycling or crewing on the Activity, and as consideration for the right to participate in the Activity, I hereby, for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, assigns, or personal representatives, knowingly and voluntarily enter into this waiver and release of liability and hereby waive any and all rights, claims or causes of action of any kind whatsoever arising out of my participation in the Activity, and do hereby release and forever discharge HypoActive, located at 109/533 Mt Alexander Road, Moonee Ponds, Victoria 3039, their affiliates, managers, members, committee members, agents, attorneys, staff, volunteers, heirs, representatives, predecessors, successors and assigns, for any physical or psychological injury, including but not limited to illness, paralysis, death, damages, economical or emotional loss, that I may suffer as a direct result of my participation in the aforementioned Activity, including travelling to and from an event related to this activity.

I am voluntarily participating in the aforementioned Activity and I am participating in the Activity entirely at my own risk.  I am aware of the risks associated with travelling to and from, as well as participating in the Activity, which may include, but are not limited to physical or psychological injury, pain, suffering, illness, disfigurement, temporary or permanent disability (including paralysis), economic or emotional loss, and death.  I understand that these injuries or outcomes may arise from my own or others' negligence, conditions related to travel, or the location of the Activity locations(s).  Nonetheless, I assume all related risks, both known or unknown to me, of my participation in the Activity, including travel to, from and during this Activity.

I agree to indemnify and hold blameless HypoActive against any and all claims, suits or actions of any kind whatsoever for liability, damages, compensation, costs or otherwise brought by me or anyone on my behalf, including attorneys' fees and any related costs, if litigation arises pursuant to any claims made by me or anyone else acting on my behalf.  If HypoActive incurs any of these types of expenses, I agree to reimburse HypoActive.

I acknowledge that HypoActive and their directors, officers, committee members, volunteers, representatives and agents are not responsible for errors, omissions, acts or failures of any party or entity conducting a specific event or activity on behalf of HypoActive.

I acknowledge that this Activity may involve a test of a participants personal and mental limits and may carry with it the potential for death, serious injury and property loss.  The risks may include, but are not limited to those caused by terrain, facilities, temperature, weather, lack of hydration, condition of participants, equipment, vehicular traffic, and actions of others, including, but not limited to, participants, volunteers, spectators, coaches, event officials and event monitors, and/or producers of the event.

I acknowledge that I have carefully read this "waiver and release" and fully understand that it is a release of liability.  I expressly agree to release and discharge HypoActive and all of its affiliates, managers, members, directors, officers, committee members, volunteers, representatives, staff, heirs, representatives, predecessors, successors, assigns and agents, form any and all claims or causes of action and I agree to voluntarily give up or waive any right that I otherwise have to bring a legal action against HypoActive for personal injury or property damage.

 

Initials            _________________              Date                 ____________________

 

To the extent that statute or case law does not prohibit releases for negligence, this release is also for negligence on the part of HypoActive, its agents and employees.

In the event that I should require medical care or treatment, I agree to be financially responsible for any costs incurred as a result of such treatment.  I am aware and understand that I should carry my own health insurance.

I acknowledge and agree to be held liable for any and all costs associated with any actions of neglect or recklessness.

This Agreement has been entered into at arm's-length, without duress or coercion and is to be interpreted as an agreement between two parties of equal bargaining strength.

Both the participant, _______________________________________________________, and HypoActive agree that this agreement is clear and unambiguous in its terms, and that no other evidence will be used or admitted to alter or explain the terms of this Agreement, but that it will be interpreted based on the language in accordance with the purposes for which it is entered into.

In the event that any provision contained within the Release of Liability shall be deemed to be severable or invalid, or if any term, condition, phrase or portion of this agreement shall be determined to be unlawful or otherwise unenforceable, the remainder of this agreement shall remain in full force and effect, so long as the clause severed does not affect the intent of the parties.  If a court should find that any provision of this agreement to be invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting said provision it would become valid and enforceable, then said provision shall be deemed to be written, construed and enforced as so limited.

I, the undersigned participant, affirm that I am of the age of 18 years or older, and that I am freely signing this agreement.  I certify that I have read this agreement, that I fully understand its content and that this release cannot be modified orally.  I am aware that this is a release of liability and a contract, and that I am signing it of my own free will.

 

Further, I confirm that I have shown this document to the qualified Legal Practitioner that I showed my Registration Waiver/ Release Document on (date……………………………….), namely (name of Practitioner………………………………………………) and I confirm that he/she fully explained the meaning of this document before witnessing me signing the said Registration Waiver/ Release Document

Information about DVC and HypoActive

 

About Diabetes Camps Victoria

Diabetes Camps Victoria (DCV) runs camps for children aged 4 to 17 years with type 1 diabetes.

Children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes get to meet other children with type 1 diabetes. This provides a peer support network, which cannot be met by health professionals or parents, where they can interact with each other and feel less isolated. Health professionals and volunteers are always there to supervise, educate and provide information to campers as well as ensure a safe environment. Consequently, children can increase their skills and awareness in managing type 1 diabetes in a non clinical and relaxed setting.

Camps are a great opportunity to meet, interact and compare experiences with other children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes. A dedicated team of health professionals and volunteers provide supervision and support so that they can enjoy a safe, fun few days and experience independence through adventure.
