Group Hike Waiver
Each year at the APhA Institute, we conduct a voluntary Group Hike Up the Mountain (foothills of the Wasatch Mountain Range). This year, the Group Hike will be held on Thursday, May 31, 2018. Participants will meet in the Sage Point Quad at 6:15pm where we will take a group picture and APhA Staff will provide a few last minute instructions and information. It is highly encouraged that all attendees view the Group Hike Section of our APhA Institute Experience Webinar (Date TBD). The Webinar provides a good overview of the Group Hike along with pictures and information on the terrain and what to expect when hiking.
APhA recognizes that the hike may involve physical activity including, but not limited to, walking, muscle strength and muscle endurance, cardiovascular conditioning and training, as well as other various fitness activities. All attendees that wish to participate in the Group Hike must sign the APhA Waiver affirming that they are in good physical condition and do not suffer from any known disability or condition which would prevent or limit their participation in this Group Hike.
In addition, participation in the Group Hike is purely voluntary and in no way mandated by APhA. Participants are responsible for all hike-related decisions, actions, and outcomes.
As an alternative to the Group Hike, APhA Institute Staff will lead a group of participants through The University of Utah's Red Butte Garden. To purchase tickets and for more information regarding the walking tour through Red Butte Garden, please visit the About the Institute Section of our website.
