Ten-Miler Team Description
The Army Ten-Miler is an annual race in which the University of Minnesota Army ROTC program competes every fall. In 2022, the Golden Gophers placed 6th nationwide in the Academies & ROTC Division. The race takes runners on a tour of Washington, D.C., at the beginning of October, when the weather is perfect for running.
Training for this specialty team begins in early April, continues through the summer, and culminates in six days of training per week in the month leading up to the race.
In past years, interest in the Army Ten-Miler was so high that those who could not travel to D.C. stayed local and ran in the Twin Cities 10k. This alternate event is open to all Cadets in the Gopher Battalion and is expected to continue well into the future. We look forward to welcoming interested Cadets to the team next spring!
