Fury Rode Rulebook

Important notice 

Rock sports, trail riding, and racing is an inherently dangerous sport. Each competitor assumes that risk when he or she participates in an event. The risk of serious injury or death cannot be eliminated and, in fact, will always be present at a high level. Participants are urged to advise their spouses and next of kin, if any, of this fact. By entering, all riders, both navigator and driver, agree to the following.

In consideration of being permitted to participate in any event sponsored, promoted, or directed by 3D entertainment INC., Trail Hero, Fury Rode, the competitor for himself/herself, his/her personal representatives, heirs, and next of kin, hereby releases the entity, and their respective officers, directors, promoters, sponsors, employees, agents and volunteers (“releasees”) of all liability to the competitor, whether caused by negligent act or omission of releasees or otherwise, while the undersigned is for any purpose participating in such event. It is fully understood by each of the competitors that there is some inherent risk associated with this event, including damage to vehicles and injury or death to the individual or others.

In addition, the participant agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the releasees from any loss, liability, damage, or cost they incur due to such participation by the competitor, whether caused by releasees’ negligence or otherwise, and agrees to assume full responsibility and risk for bodily injury, death, or property damage from releasees’ negligence or otherwise while the competitor is participating in this event.

Each participant acknowledges and represents the following while competing: 

– That he or she has read the foregoing release and waiver of liability and indemnity agreement. 

– That he or she does at all times, while riding in a vehicle participating in an event, wear his or her respective safety harness and helmet.

– That the owner/driver certifies that he or she has inspected this vehicle and that the same certifies it to be in proper mechanical condition for participation in trail riding, rock sports, and racing.

– That the owner/driver has informed himself/herself about the event, either by prior participation or by investigation into the sport and especially Trail Hero and Fury Rode events.

– That the driver or any other person(s) in a vehicle participating in any Trail Hero or Fury Rode, may choose to bypass any obstacle and, therefore, assumes all risk and liability, as indicated above.

Please Be Aware: 

Although safety is generally everyone’s concern and certainly the highest priority of Trail Hero and Fury Rode, the ultimate responsibility rests on the competitors. Competitors can, at any time, choose to bypass any obstacle or area where they feel uncomfortable or unsafe driving.

1.0   Course Layout

Fury Rode’s goal with the course layout is to challenge every type of vehicle respective to their class. Therefore, vehicles in the Stock Class will be faced with different challenges than vehicles in other classes.  The trail itself is designed to allow all vehicles from all classes to participate. The accumulated time from the Checkpoints throughout the trail will determine winner (More explained 2.0)

2.0   Timed Checkpoints/Challenges
Fury Rode’s goal with the Timed Checkpoints/Challenges is to create an adventure from start to finish of the trail, and keep the competitive challenges contained to the checkpoints themselves.

2.1-Overall accumulated time acquired from the checkpoints will determine the winner.

2.2-Each Checkpoint will offer a different and unique challenge that will test all participants and riders on the team.

2.3-Upon entry to the Checkpoint, teams will navigate their vehicle toward the challenge point that matches their vehicle class. Teams will then STOP and talk with Fury Rode Officials prior to entering challenge.

2.4-Fury Rode Official’s will retain sole possession of the official time recording device. At no time may a team or participant protest an Official’s Time Recording.
2.5-Teams will be scrutinized and time penalties will be given to those that harass Fury Rode Officials. This is a ZERO TOLERANCE Policy.

3.0 Event Rules
The Goal of the Event Rules is to ensure that all participants are responsible and held accountable for their own actions within the confines of any 3D Entertainment INC. event. Participants that break the Event Rules will be given an associated penalty which is the MINIMUM to be enforced and is subject to further penalty, fine, or ban from future Fury Rode events.
