Unregistered Runner Gets Paralyzed, Sues Race

By Scott Douglas

Robert Fecteau III is suing the organizers of the 2010 Filthy 5K Mud Run in Richmond, Va., for negligence after he became partially paralyzed in a mud pit near the finish. Fecteau is seeking $30 million even though he wasn't a registered participant in the event, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.

Fecteau claims that a 30-foot-long mud pit participants crawled through soon before the finish was constructed with "negligence, reckless disregard, and/or gross negligence." Fecteau says the pit forced him to jam his hands and arms as he started to crawl, resulting in partial paralysis from the chest down and minimal use of his arms.

Fecteau never registered for the race. Instead, he used the number of a female friend, who had signed the race's liability waiver.

Fecteau's lawyer told the Times-Dispatch that Fecteau's bandit status was irrelevant, because even if he had signed the liability waiver, the waiver wouldn't hold up in Virginia court.

Got to the link there's several comments about this case, some very well reasoned about why this guy's case should fail.
