The Army said for active-duty Soldiers, the 10-mile race will serve as a qualifier for Fort Riley’s team that will compete in the Army 10-miler in Washington D.C. in October.
All three of the races are open to both military and civilian runners. For the two-mile run only, strollers will be permitted on the course. No pets or bicycles will be allowed on the course.

three races for free. Soldiers in the 10-miler and all runners with paid registration will receive a race t-shirt. Shirt sizes can only be guaranteed for those registering by July 9th.
Runners who don’t register online before July 27 can sign up on race day at King Field House, between 6 and 6:45 a.m. Races begin at 7 a.m.
