Reason for change
Current release is cumbersome, lacks detail and does not provide acknowledgement that the driver has inspected his or her vehicle, harness and equipment prior to Marathon. Present forms only involve a signature and are often collected as early as registration or with entries. The intent was assurance that the driver had actually completed an inspection at the event location prior to Marathon or cross-country and was assuming full liability for equipment failure in the event of accident.
