Army Ten-Miler Sold Out in Record-Breaking 9 Hours 


Another record-breaking milestone.

The 2012 Army Ten-Miler filled its 30,000 runner field in a record time and is “Sold Out.”

Race officials announced today, May 15, that the 28th annual race shattered all previous race registration records for both the priority and general registrations.

The race will take place on Sunday, Oct. 21, in Washington, D.C. at the Pentagon.

Priority registration, presented by Navy Federal Credit Union, opened on May 1 at 12:01 a.m. for all U.S. service members and runners who have participated in seven or more Ten-Miler races.

Approximately one-third of the total 30,000 race entries were reserved for priority registration on a first-come, first-served basis. This year, priority registration sold out in less than 19 hours exceeding last year’s record of three days.

The remaining two-thirds of the race entries became available to the general public, on a first-come, first-served basis, May 15, and sold out in record time in less than nine hours.

“The race continues to gain in popularity and sells out in record time year after year,” Jim Vandak, race director, said.

Adding, “We are genuinely grateful to all of our loyal runners for supporting the Army’s race. They are the true spirit of the sport.”

The race is continuing the online transfer program for individuals who missed the registration.

Starting on June 1, the seller may find a buyer to initiate the transfer on the Ten-Miler website by filling out the form at the transfer tab under “Registration.” The transfer program will conclude on August 31.

The Association of the United States Army and KBR, an AUSA sustaining member company, are the race’s Lead Sponsors.
