    A great chance to run with 30k+ of your newest friends! Many of the runners are service members in all of the uniformed services. Instead of a traditional finishers medal; the Army awards a traditional challengers coin to each finisher. Be warned in advance that the beginning is fairly jammed packed for about the first two miles.

    If I was asked to give a grade to the overall organization of the Army Ten Miler (ATM), I would give an A+ – just like that of the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) – both running events are superbly run in total organization. This year’s ATM had a course change – due to some ongoing construction, but with or without this, the ATM route still ran by some famous monuments in Washington, D.C. Plenty of fluids were available throughout the course, which on this day was greatly needed, and appreciated – one of the more humid days in recent memory. The Army soldiers who were assigned throughout the course gave great support and encouragement to all runners – they are all deserving of our respect for all that they do – as the Army says – Hooah!!!! The title of my short message – “Age is just a number” – my time in this year’s ATM was the fastest I have run in the past 3 years – I turned 67 this year, and I felt like I was a “Chariot on Fire.” If you have the will, and you stay focus on your goal – anything is possible, regardless of your age. The ATM today – the MCM on October 28, 2018 – another great event – looking forward to it.

    …But it was just okay.

    Pros:
    -Super fun to run past all of the landmarks and monuments
    -Festive atmosphere
    -I liked the challenge coin rather than the traditional medal
    -I really liked the hat, I still wear it quite a bit

    Cons:
    -It felt disorganized. I understand that its huge, but everything from getting out of the metro, into the corrals, trying to get food (not much left and I was solidly middle of the pack), the lack of coins (Mailed later) all just left a bad taste in my mouth
    -Finish line volunteers were polite, but had no idea what was going on, where we needed to go, nothing. Seemed like poor communication
    -Registration fills quickly, pay attention in May if you want to get in! 2015 was a challenging year with a lot of registration site crashes

    Bottom Line:
    I travel to DC frequently, I wasn’t put off by the security (at the expo or the corrals), just how disorganized it all seemed. I will say that I have friends who have run this race multiple times and all agreed that 2015 was significantly more unorganized than other years, so perhaps I just picked a bad year!

    I have run the Army Ten Miler (ATM) 7 times, and I love this race – 2006 is my best time so far, and still working to improve on that. The ATM is the biggest ten miler in the Nation, and the Army does an outstanding job on the entire event. Great sights to see in running in the Nation’s capitol. Post refreshments, foods are plentiful. Tents from various units throughout the U.S. are also set up that offer some other great snacks. The ATM is run in the same month as the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) , and many runners use the ATM as a warm up before the MCM. Both are about 2 weeks apart. I highly recommend this run to all – you will not be disappointed. The long sleeve shirt are always nice, and the coin medals are also nice.
