WASHINGTON, D.C. - The 29th annual Army Ten-Miler bounding through Washington D.C. on October 20th, 2013 was put on by the Military District of Washington (MDW).  Starting in 1985 with only 1300 finishers, this year’s race had a turnout of over 25,000 competitors comprising of active and retired Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force as well as corporate and charity sponsored athletes and individuals, all of whom enjoy the love of the sport and majesty of the event.

Sites seen along the way included the Pentagon, Arlington National Cemetery, The White House, Watergate, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, the Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial and both the Arlington and George Mason Memorial Bridges crossing over the Potomac River.

“I have been competing for 13 years, and this was by far the largest event I have ever raced in, in terms of both popularity and prestige.  Always feeling like a team player both in my personal and professional life, I have never before experienced the bond I felt with my fellow runners that day.  I lost count of all the ‘good job’ and ‘keep strong’ cheers from everyone I passed or who passed me, no matter how tired or out of breath they were.  Mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, warriors, survivors – all strangers, but through our common struggle I felt united with them.  The Army-Ten Miler was more than a race, it was a reminder to those of us at home about those who are off defending our freedom.  Like a race, their fight is both individual and for the greater good of a ‘team.’  I have never felt more proud and honored to be part of ‘team’ USA.”
