From the heart of the West Metro area and the Stenger Soccer Complex, All-Out brings you our 6th annual Polar Prowl!  Along with its Endless Series sidekick in June… Summer Breeze, these 1M, 5K, 10K and Half Marathon courses will follow Van Bibber Creek Trail west through Arvada’s open spaces with spectacular views of the countryside and Table Mountain.  Plus… all distances have a fairly level grade, so yup, get ready for a PR, or gather your besties and join in on the ALL NEW half marathon relay!

♦ Race Shirts- The one you’ll want to wear EVERY day!
Long sleeved, & gender specific, of course… still poly for those moisture wicking properties, but with a touch of cotton for extreme comfiness.

Not only will both water & electrolytes be handed to you at the finish line, but course aid stations are an average of just 1.2 miles 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.

Yup, even if you’re dead last… we’re not going anywhere until we cheer you in.

Aid Station Deets

Relay Deets

For the camaraderie of a team sport, to inspire a friend or maybe to be encouraged
yourself… participating in a relay can be the most fun of all!

Teams- Relay teams will consist of 3 members who will complete 1 leg each of the half marathon course.
Legs- The course will be divided into legs as follows:
Exchange Point(s)- Exchanges will take place near Aid 1, in the instances indicated by ‘*’ above.  (Not right at the aid station, to avoid congestion, but near enough that everyone will have access to the facilities & support they need.)
Click here for a map or directions to the Exchange Point.
Transportation- Arranging for transportation to & from the exchange point(s) is the responsibility of each relay team, as shuttles are not being provided (at least for the time being).
Registration- Come up with a great team name, choose a captain, provide him/her with your entry fees, and have them register first.  Once the captain is in and the team is paid for, members will need to register individually.  (The amount charged to captains will be the entry fee less $10, allowing each member to either pay the balance or benefit from the NOSWAG discount.)
Participation- Team members will not be allowed to participate in both the relay and the individual half marathon.
Bibs- Each individual will be assigned and required to wear a unique bib, for safety purposes.  (Team bibs will be personalized with the first 20 characters of the team name.)
Timing Chips- One chip will be assigned to the team as a whole and distributed with the captain’s bib, regardless of which leg he/she chooses to complete.
Chip Transfers- Timing chips will be attached to easy-to-transfer slap bands, so whew… nothing to carry along the way!
Packet Pick-Up- Team members may choose to check in together or separately, but each individual will still be required to provide photo proof of identity at that time.
Finish- Team members who complete earlier legs are encouraged to enter the chute & cross the finish line with the member who completes the final leg.
Finisher Medals- Medals will only be available to members who are present when their their last team member crosses the finish line.
Awards- Relay teams will be viewed as one competitive category, for the time being, and the top 3 overall will be awarded during the half marathon ceremony.

All other features, rules, policies, terms & conditions apply as if relay team members had registered to race individually.


Groups of 5-9 receive $5 off each entry… 10-19 receive $10 off!
Just sign up together to receive your discount automatically.. no code necessary!

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 taco 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, athletes who register during late pricing 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.

**To be certain those who registered earliest receive the shirt size they requested, athletes who enter during walk-up (at Early Packet Pick-up or on Race Day) will need to wait until after they race to select from the sizes available.


Without YOU, these events simply wouldn’t be possible!
