WASHINGTON – The Army has decided to conduct this year’s Army Ten-Miler (ATM) race in a virtual setting. We weighed the risks based on rising COVID-19 case rates and the addition of the Delta variant, and determined that changing to a virtual race best protects Ten-Miler participants, event support staff, medical and law enforcement personnel and spectators within the Washington, D.C. and Arlington communities. The decision to hold a virtual race provides the safeguards needed to eliminate the risk to participants given the nature of a competitive road race.
The 37th Annual Army Ten-Miler – Virtual Edition will now take place from Sunday, October 10 to Monday, November 29, 2021. Virtual race registration remains open; however, the ATM Expo and Pasta Dinner will not take place this year.
Registered in-person runners will be automatically transferred to the virtual race and will receive $30 registration credit to the 2022 ATM race, which accommodates price differences between the virtual ($59) and in-person ($89) races. Additionally, runners who purchased the Pasta Dinner tickets will receive refunds or credit. Runner packets will be mailed free of charge to participants to the registration address. Runner packets include: Bibs, Finisher Coin, Shirt, Calendar and Runner Bag.
The safety and health of ATM participants remains our top priority. While we had hoped that COVID-19 conditions would allow runners to gather in person this year, the risks remain too great at this time. Please check https://www.armytenmiler.com for official updates. We look forward to continued participation in Army Ten Miler events.
