Registration is expected to open on June 14 for the 37th annual Army Ten-Miler, announced organizers, who are hoping an in-person race will be possible in Washington, D.C. 

At the beginning, registration will be limited for a virtual race, held Oct. 10–25. No final decision has been made about whether runners will be in the D.C.-area for an in-person race. “Based on the information available to us today, we are continuing our preparations for a live event. It is our commitment to keep all of our participants involved and informed as we get closer to race day,” organizers say in a statement.

If it is held, the 2021 in-person race is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 10, one day before the start of the Association of the U.S. Army’s Annual Meeting and Exposition. AUSA is a founding sponsor of the race that began in 1985 as a fundraiser for Army morale, welfare and recreation programs.

“The safety and wellbeing of ATM participants, volunteers, event staff, and spectators remain our top priority,” the statement says. The Ten-Miler team is “closely monitoring the developments related to COVID-19,” the statement says.

“We will remain in close contact with our partners at the Military District of Washington Command Surgeon's Office, The Arlington County EMS, National Park Service, The District of Columbia government, the Department of the Army, and the Department of Defense to help us evaluate options of safely executing a live 37th Army's race,” the statement says.

The 2020 Army Ten-Miler was held virtually.
