5K Course (45% Asphalt / 55% Concrete) Interactive Map Printable PDF
5K Athletes will leave the marina lot and turn right onto the main park road (running with traffic as required by Park Management), to begin a clockwise loop. After just under 1 1/4 miles, athletes will turn right and run a short section before turning left onto Bear Creek Trail. After completing a dogleg, athletes will continue on the trail until they once again reach the main park road. Returning the way they came to the finish line and the cheers of friends and family, 5K athletes will have access to water at one aid station twice along the way, at or near 1.25 and 2.25 miles. NOTE: Due to the park’s requirement that athletes run WITH traffic on the road portions of the course, we will be coning off a shoulder for your safety. Please be sure to stay as close to the shoulder / away from auto traffic as possible at all times, OUTSIDE THE CONES.

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!
