Priority registration for the 2023 Army Ten-Miler opens March 1, with general registration and virtual race registration to follow March 8, race officials announced.

The 39th annual race will be conducted by the Army Military District of Washington Oct. 8 in Arlington, Virginia. The third largest 10-mile road race in the world, the Army Ten-Miler takes place one day before the start of the Association of the U.S. Army’s Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington, D.C.

AUSA is a founding and co-lead sponsor of the race.

For the first time since 2019, runners will be able to transfer their race registration to other runners if they are no longer able to use it. Transfers must be finalized no later than Sept. 1, race officials said in a statement, adding that transfer instructions will be available soon.

Priority registration, presented by Navy Federal Credit Union, opens at 8 a.m. Eastern March 1 with 10,000 slots available, and will remain open until 11:59 p.m. Eastern March 7. It is available to active-duty, National Guard and Reserve personnel and runners who have completed seven or more Army Ten-Miler races. 

This year, service members are no longer required to use a .mil email address to register. Instead, their military status will be verified in-person at the race expo.

General registration, beginning at 8 a.m. Eastern March 8, is open to the public with a total race capacity of 36,000. Service members can still register, and all runners must be at least 13 years old on race day to enter.

There also will be 2,000 slots available March 8 for those who wish to compete in a virtual race between Oct. 8 and Dec. 31. “The virtual race is very limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Transfers from virtual to in-person races and vice versa are not permitted in 2023,” race officials said, adding that the virtual race is for individuals only, not teams.

The in-person Army Ten-Miler starts and ends at the Pentagon, with a course that travels through Washington, D.C. All race proceeds benefit Army Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation programs.
