Do Firewalkers need to sign a waiver before walking?

We do ask everyone to sign a waiver, yes. More than anything, this is to get it absolutely clear in EVERYONES head exactly what they are doing.

The event is of course run by experts and professionals, and it is fully insured up to £10m. Rather surprisingly, the insurance company considers firewalking to be safer than most sports, such as five a side football.

The waiver is signed electronically during the seminar.

Here is the text of our waiver in advance, so you can review it. It may of course be different at the event so please do review it.

How A Firewalk Experience Challenged Our Team And How We Rose To That Challenge

Every so often I get a ‘lived reminder’, an experience if you like, that reminds me that I may be the one standing in my own way. It challenges me to ask, ‘What could I free myself from? What am I stopping myself doing? What would be the benefit of looking at this challenge differently?’ The firewalk I undertook with my company, Tenzing, offered me that insight.
