The Army Ten-Miler is the second largest ten-mile race in the United States. It is held every October in Arlington, VA and Washington, DC, sponsored by the U.S. Army Military. Each year tens of thousands of runners and spectators come to Washington, DC to join in this race classic.
The Army Ten-Miler proceeds support Army Morale, Welfare and Recreation, a comprehensive network of support and leisure services designed to enhance the lives of soldiers and their families. With more soldiers coming home this year's event is sure to attract record numbers.
The Army’s annual Army Ten-Mile Race and Expo is conducted in our nation’s capital by the U.S. Army Military District of Washington (MDW). Attracting over 35,000 runners and 900 teams from around the world, the Army Ten-Miler (ATM) exemplifies the Spirit of Sport and the Spirit of a Nation. Participants include military, civilians, wheel chair athletes and wounded warrior athletes. ATM’s mission is to support Army outreach, build morale, and promote physical fitness. Over 900 Soldiers and 900 volunteers support the Army’s “world class” ATM race.
Now in its 34th year, over 420,478 runners have run ATM since its inception in 1985. ATM is a category-B Army Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) event open to the public. All race proceeds benefit MWR programs. To date, ATM has generated over $7.3 million for Army MWR.
The MDW Command serves as the Army Forces Component and core staff element of the Joint Force Headquarters National Capital Region to conduct operations that deter, prevent and respond to threats aimed at the National Capital Region. MDW also conducts world-class ceremonial, musical and special events in support of our Nation’s leadership.
