Army Ten Miler Registration Opens Sunday

Registration for the popular October race begins on May 15

Runners, set your alarm clocks: General-public registration for the oh-so-popular Army Ten Miler race opens Sunday, May 15—at 12:01 AM. 

The race, which will wind through DC and Arlington on October 9, accommodates 30,000 runners: One-third of the slots have been reserved for US service members and participants who’ve run at least seven Army Ten Miler races in the past. It's part of the race’s new “priority” registration system. Registration for priority bibs opened on May 1, but a post today on the race’s Facebook page says those slots have been filled.

The remaining two-thirds are for the general public on a first-come, first-served basis. General registration ($55) opens just after midnight on Sunday. We weren’t kidding when we told you to set an alarm: The 2009 race sold out in six days, and last year’s filled up in just 35 hours. 

If you miss the registration window, there’s still hope: From June 1 through August 19, race organizers will open up a registration-transfer page on the Army Ten Miler Web site. Last year, more than 2,500 runners were able to score bibs through the program.
