IMPORTANT: Your decision to forego a race shirt and register at the reduced rate is final. The moment you provide payment information & click to process your entry, changing your mind to add the race shirt 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 event prep to packet pick-up, and from course 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 pocket book 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!
