|SPECIAL ATTENTION Alumni Only!
|♦ RRCA Certified Race Director- Organization you can count on!
With 50+ events under the belt of our director and a staff with more than 15 years experience, your event will run smoothly. (Ha! No pun intended.)
|♦ Early AND Race Day Packet Pick-Up- For those who like to prep in advance!
Sure, picking up early gets you another chance to win a prize, but no worries if you wait until race day… we make it quick & easy.
|♦ Tech Shirts- No cotton allowed!
Super comfy, moisture wicking & gender specific.
|♦ Finisher Medals- Yup, custom molded & distance specific, even for the 5K!
Then a little something special for our 1 Milers too.
|♦ Even More SWAG- Icy towels… yours to keep!
Dripping with ice water and ready to cool your core temp at the finish line.
|♦ Souvenir Race Bibs- With pull tags for your convenience!
Yet another keepsake to remember your day, plus your meal & prize tickets are right there at your finger tips.
|♦ FREE Race Pics- Unlimited downloads are on us!
Professional photographers at the finish line AND on course… enjoy!
|♦ Text Results & Placements- Individually sent to all who opt in!
Just provide your mobile number with your entry, then text the keyword ALLOUT to 550055 from that mobile device. Yup… it’s that easy!
|♦ Gear Check- No trips back to the car for our athletes… no sir-ee!
Leave it with us… we’ll keep an eye on it for you.
|♦ Porta-Poos-A-Plenty- 3 Units for 500 people? What, are you crazy?
Ever had to run without using a restroom because the lines were too long? Us too… ouch! We provide more than TRIPLE the facilities as other events.
|♦ Accurately Measured Courses- Race the distance you trained for!
Not a little more and not a little less… we measure each course no fewer than 3 times before race day and mark them so they’re crystal clear.
|♦ Medical Support- Nothing is more important than your safety!
Here’s hopin’ those guys are really bored, but just in case… you’ll find our med crew both at the start / finish AND on course. Plus, each and every volunteer you pass knows who to call for help.
|♦ Tons of Aid Stations- No need to carry any extra weight!
Not only will both water & electrolytes be handed to you at the finish line, but course aid stations are an average of just 1 mile apart.
|♦ Disposable Timing Chips- No hassle at the finish line!
And no fees if you forget to return your timing chip either… we don’t need it back.
|♦ Electronic Results- No more endless sheets of data to sort through!
All results scroll on easy to read computer screens in the expo area during the event and are posted online by the end of the day.
|♦ 3 Deep Awards- Overall AND Divisions!
Events small enough to stay friendly and personal give you a better chance of landing on the podium! (1 Mile awards will be given to the top 3 in each gender only, for the time being.)
|♦ Post-Race Meal- Breakfast tacos, fruit, bagels, chocolate milk & OTTER POPS for all!
Yup, even if you’re dead last… we’re not going anywhere until we cheer you in.
|♦ Prizes Galore- If you’re registered, you’re entered… easy peasy! Just bring us your ticket at the start of your award ceremony and you’re in! (Psst… in most cases, everyone who sticks around for the giveaway goes home with a prize!)|
|As a part of our first-of-its-kind race that doesn’t end, (yes, it goes on and on my friend), run the same distance at back-to-back events to measure your progress on identical Endless Series courses. Prizes may be awarded to those who beat their previous time! Click here for more information.|
|With about a gazillion reasons why you might not be able to join us on race day, we know you still want to race with your friends & family. Well, we’ve got your back! Space will be extremely limited, so get in early if you want to race from afar for any reason. Click here for more information.|

Too many race shirts to wear ’em all? Not a fan of goodies in a bag? That’s cool… just enter this discount code when you register and bam… $5 saved! (Don’t worry, you’ll still be sportin’ that finish line bling with a burrito filled belly when you download all those free race pics!)
Discount Code: NOSWAG
IMPORTANT: Your decision to forego your race SWAG and register at the reduced rate is final. The moment you provide payment information & click to process your entry, changing your mind to add a shirt and goodie bag later will not be an option under any circumstances.
*Because goodies must be ordered far enough in advance to have them printed & shipped, late and walk-up entrants will receive SWAG on a first come, first-served basis. If the shirt size you prefer is unavailable when you register, please select your next best size to be sure you get one, then stop by the packet pick-up area after you race to see if a swap is possible.
Without YOU, these events simply wouldn’t be possible!
From prep to packet pick-up, and from marshals to meal service, there are a variety of ways you can help. Sure… when you volunteer, you can look forward to that warm & fuzzy feeling that comes by giving back, but with All-Out, there’s WAY more to it than that. There’s no experience necessary, but space is limited so please let us know you’re available right away! Athletes: We know endurance sports can take a big chunk out of your pocketbook and we’ve got your back. Check out our ‘Earn a Free Entry’ program! Groups: Tired of those bake sales & car washes? We are happy to be a part of your fundraising efforts! (Donations begin with just 10 volunteers and you need not be an official nonprofit.) Students: Earn those credits in the most fun way possible!

Directions – Westminster’s City Park is located just northwest of 104th Ave & Sheridan Blvd. From US36, you’d go east on 104th Ave just under half a mile to the park entrance on the north side of the street. Once inside the park, turn east & follow the main roads around to the venue. Click here for a map or to get directions.
Parking – Athletes & spectators will be allowed to park in the lots indicated as ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ below only, leaving other lots available for park maintenance staff and the softball tournaments scheduled for the same morning.
Towels – It’s gonna be HOT! As great as the ice water dripping from your finish line towel will feel, please DO NOT return to the finish aid tent to re-dip your towel once it starts to dry. (Think about that for a minute… ewww!)
The above information is only that which is unique to this event.
