|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.|
Dedicated in support of Colorado Canine Rescue!
Rescuing ‘next-in-line’ dogs of all breeds from overcrowded shelters, Dog Days is presented in support of the Colorado Canine Rescue. Run entirely by volunteers, and with no central location… only foster homes, please consider a generous donation when you register!
Only about 1/2 mile from the race start, enjoy a relaxing night’s sleep at The Westin Westminster!
With their spacious guest rooms, spectacular views, and signature Heavenly® Beds, you’ll be all set to go All-Out on race day!
Very special discount coming soon!

Too many race shirts to wear ’em all? Not a fan of goodies in a bag? That’s cool… just enter the following 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 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!
Just click ‘Volunteer Now’ for more information, then brace yourself… you’re about to have a blast!
