Update: Registration is now closed. The Army Ten-Miler sold out in just over 24 hours this year, which set a new record for the race.
With the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler just around the corner next weekend, it’s time to start thinking about DC’s other great ten mile run: the Army Ten-Miler. Registration for the October 24 race opened today and it’s expected to fill up in just a few days. With over 24,000 runners, the Army Ten-Miler is the country’s largest ten mile race, and it’s a great course that benefits a worthy program— so sign up today!
I’m not sure that it’s the country’s largest 10-miler…the Broad Street Run in Philly is capped at 30,000 this year…just sayin
Last year, the Army Ten-Miler had approximately 30-32,000 runners.
We’re actually all right– the Army Ten Miler recently regained the title of largest 10-miler from the Broad Street run, and even though about 30,000 register, only about 24,000 run and finish.
It’s almost reaching the point of being too big.
As of today, the 2nd day of registration, as of 3 minutes ago 28,801 already registered for 30,000 slots.
