There is always an element of risk of injury when on the course, but the Liquid team has taken measures to ensure the course is safe and manageable for all. Please understand that, despite the required life jackets, any water event comes with the risk of injury and drowning. Participants assume all risks and medical expenses if needed during or after the event.
