30,000 runners will hit the streets of D.C.

The 26th annual Army Ten Miler, to take place October 24th in Washington, D.C., sold out all 30,000 entries in less than two days. This establishes a new record for the quickest Army Ten Mile sellout ever. The previous record was six days, set in 2009.

“Wow, no one expected us to sell out in 35 hours.  Each year, the sprint to the registration finish line gets shorter and shorter, “ commented Jim Vandak, ATM race director. “This testifies to the race’s popularity and its tradition of excellence.”  A special thanks to all our runners for supporting the race and Soldiers.”

Runners representing all 50 states and half a dozen countries will line up on race day. In addtion, runners have signed up over 675 teams, most military, to compete for the annual Commander’s Cup.
