32nd Army Ten-Miler registration scheduled to open in May

Friday, April 1, 2016

The 32nd Annual Army Ten-Miler will be held on Sunday, Oct. 9, 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 soldier family Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) 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, presented by Navy Federal Credit Union, for all U.S. service members and runners who have participated in seven or more Army Ten-Miler races is scheduled to open May 11 at 7:00 a.m. EDT.

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

General registration, presented by General Dynamics, for the public at large is scheduled to open May 25 at 7:00 a.m. EDT.

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 8.

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

The Army Ten-Miler Expo, presented by Navy Federal Credit Union, will be held on Friday, Oct. 7, and Saturday, Oct. 8, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days at the DC Armory.

The Crystal Gateway Marriott 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 General Dynamics Pasta Dinner on Saturday, Oct. 8.

Since the room block and pasta dinner always sell out, race officials encourage runners to make their reservations early.
