2015 Army Ten-Miler registration scheduled to open in May for 31st run

Wednesday, April 01, 2015

The 31st Annual Army Ten-Miler will be held on Sunday, Oct.11, at 8 a.m., at the Pentagon.

Produced by the U.S. Army Military District of Washington, the Army’s race will attract military and civilian runners from around the world.

All race proceeds will benefit soldier and family morale, welfare and recreation (MRW) programs

Army Ten-Miler officials have confirmed that they will continue the two-phase registration process for the Army’s race that was introduced in 2011.

Priority registration for all U.S. service members and runners who have participated in seven or more Army Ten-Miler races is scheduled to open May 5.

U.S. service members must use a ".mil" address to register, and a searchable database will be posted for seven-time or more Army Ten-Miler runners.

General registration, for the public at large, is scheduled to open May 19. Entry is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Installations will be able to obtain pre-paid entries for their teams during both registration sessions.

For those who miss registration in May, the Army Ten-Miler online transfer program is planned to open June 2.

Last year up to 1,500 runners were able to enter the race through the transfer program.

The 31st Annual Army Ten-Miler will be conducted again on the day before the opening of the Association of the United States Army’s Annual Meeting and Exposition, Oct. 12 – 14, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

The race’s two-day Health and Fitness EXPO will be held on Friday, Oct. 9, and Saturday, Oct. 10, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.

The Marriott Crystal Gateway Hotel in Arlington, Va., will again serve as the headquarter hotel for this year’s race.

The hotel is conveniently located less than a mile from the Pentagon and is on the Metro Blue and Yellow Lines.

The hotel will offer a special room rate for runners and host the popular all-you-can-eat GEICO Pasta Dinner on Saturday, Oct. 10.

Since the room block and GEICO Pasta Dinner always sell out, race officials encourage runners to make their reservations early.
