|The Road Runners Club of America is the oldest and largest national association dedicated to the promotion of running as a competitive sport. While certification is not required to produce a running event, race directors who have earned this status have completed a rigorous study program, passed a comprehensive exam with a minimum score of 85%, and communicate to participants that they can fully expect a safe, quality experience. Additionally, all recognized RRCA Certified Race Directors have agreed to abide by a Code of Ethics that ensures we will do everything in our power to conduct our events with the highest degree of ethical standards.
|Since 1998, the RRCA has offered the Coaching Certification Program to provide a baseline of education for individuals seeking to become endurance running coaches. Certification verifies that a coach has studied and been tested on a scientific body of knowledge designed to help runners of all ages and abilities achieve their goals, while minimizing the risks of injuries, and requires that all who will be certified agree to and abide by an equally comprehensive Code of Ethics / Standards of Conduct.|
|USA Triathlon is the sanctioning authority for multisport in the United States. Certified Race Directors have completed a 16-hour training class focused on the latest in race directing methods, athlete safety, risk management and the standards for sanctioning a quality event. While this training program is not required for an event to be sanctioned, athletes should expect more from race directors who have made the commitment to get certified. Sanctioning an event with USAT ensures that event and course plans are in compliance with all safety standards and that races will be in a fair competition environment.|
|USA Track & Field is the National Governing Body for long-distance running and race walking in the United States. Although we no longer sanction our events due to newly imposed regulations that would have required we stop allowing athletes to participate with their dogs, All-Out remains committed to following all other national and international rules and regulations of the sport, and to providing a safe environment for both participants and spectators.|
|The American Red Cross First Aid / CPR / AED Certification prepares students to recognize and care for a variety of first aid, breathing, and cardiac emergencies involving adults, children and infants through hands on practice and experience. As the most trusted provider of health & safety training, programs are developed and taught by world-class experts to ensure individuals are confident and ready to respond in almost any emergency situation.|
