This release extends to the releasees’ own negligence, the negligence of others, and releases them from liability for all forms of injury resulting from my participation in this event, including death. The release is binding for myself, my heirs, executors, administrators, legal representatives, assignees, and successors in interest, hereinafter referred to as “successors.”
