Registration for the Army Ten-Miler has been postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 36th annual race is scheduled for Oct. 11.

Priority and general registration for the race was scheduled for May 6 and May 20, respectively, race organizers announced. New registration dates will be announced when conditions allow.

“The Army Ten-Miler and the Military District of Washington want to ensure a safe experience for participants, volunteers, supporters and members of the community,” officials said in a statement. “During this delay, we will review event operations and protocols to ensure we are in compliance with all prescribed guidelines for gatherings and community events.”

The annual Army Ten-Miler Race and Expo takes place in Washington, D.C., and attracts more than 35,000 runners and 900 teams from around the world. Participants include military members, civilians, wheelchair athletes and wounded warrior athletes. More than 900 soldiers and 900 volunteers support the event.

The Ten-Miler’s mission is to support Army outreach, build morale and promote physical fitness, according to the event website.

All proceeds from the race benefit Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation programs. To date, the Ten-Miler has generated more than $7.3 million for Army MWR programs, according to the event website.
