Participants in an ordinary marathon are easily injured. Organizers
therefore recommend that you get a thorough medical check-up, and
adequate insurance cover, prior to running the marathon. The above
is also the reason for the following terms and conditions, including
in particular the exclusion of liability in clauses 2 - 3.
at your own risk
By joining the event you accept that your participation in the marathon
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 organizers, sponsors, staff or partners, unless
you are subjected to any kind of injury or loss due to
gross negligence on the part of organizers or their employees.
The organizers cannot be held liable for negligence displayed
by independently participating third parties or the local
authorities prior to, during, or after the run.
If you are injured in any way due to
your participation in the event, and as a result are
unable to go through with your stay in Thailand as planned,
you are also prevented from claiming damages, indemnification
or any other kind of compensation.
3. Medical Help
Organizers will ensure that qualified medial professionals are on hand
to assist competitors during the marathon. 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 organizers responsible for any errors
or any negligence caused by local medical personnel.
If the medical staff or other assistants
in the marathon advise any competitor against continuing
the race due to medical concerns, the person in question
will be advised to withdraw from the run. Organizers
do 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 event. Such insurance cannot
be taken out in Thailand, and must be purchased before arriving in
Without the assistance and support of sponsors of the event, 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 organizers 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 organizers prior to the race.
All rights in relation to the event name and logo are the property
of the event, and permission to use the name Laguna Phuket International
Marathon™ or pictures from the event for commercial purposes, must
be obtained in writing from the organizers prior to use.
7. The Thai Authorities
Without the good will of the Thai authorities, the event would not
be possible. Traffic control and medical aid are some of the favors
that the Thai authorities perform to help the success of the event.
Therefore, all participants must respect any request from the Thai
police or local authorities. Any hostile confrontation between runners
and local authorities would be an enormous embarrassment to organizers.
In Thailand, disputes are rarely settled through direct confrontation
and any 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 organizers.
Likewise, respect should be shown for
the citizens of Thailand 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
1. Should the incident occur before departure to Thailand, 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 Thailand, 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
9. Additional Notes
These conditions, in particular the exclusions of liability in clauses
2 - 3, form part of your agreement with Go Adventure Asia, the organizers
of the Laguna Phuket International Marathon™.
10. Choice of Law and Venue
By joining the event, you accept that any dispute in relation to your
participation in the run will be subject to Thai law.
