Deck your halls again this season with some sweet race SWAG at our 4th annual Fa La La 5K, 10K & Half Marathon! Centrally located between Denver & Boulder just a mile off US-36 at Westminster’s award winning City Park, the majesty of our breathtaking Flatirons as a backdrop will inspire you every step of the way along the Big Dry Creek Trail… well known as a Colorado favorite.

Not a little more and not a little less… we measure each course no fewer than 3 times before race day.

Here’s hopin’ those guys are really bored, but just in case… each and every volunteer you pass knows who to call for help.

Not only will both water & electrolytes be handed to you at the finish line, but course aid stations are an average of just 1.5 miles apart.

And no fees if you forget to return your timing chip either… we don’t need it back.

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! (Oh yea!)
|♦ Raffle 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!)|

*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!
Click the buttons above or ‘Volunteer Now’ below for more information, then brace yourself… you’re about to have a blast!
