The Lead the Way Fund is pleased to announce that we have secured slots at the Army Ten-Miler race on October 9, 2011 in Washington, D.C.   All remaining slots will be filled on a first come-first served basis.  We hope that you will be able to race for us or at least come out and support our runners.  All funds raised by our runners will go directly to the Lead the Way Fund to support our ongoing programs and initiatives.

Each year tens of thousands of runners and spectators come to Washington, DC to join in this race classic. Produced by the U.S. Army Military District of Washington, 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. The race starts and finishes at the Pentagon, passing by DC landmarks including the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, and the Capitol Building.  For more details about the race as well as the activities that will take place in conjunction with the event, please visit the Army Ten-Miler website at
