Race Day

Spectator Spots

You don't have to be a runner to be part of the Army Ten-Miler (ATM) experience! ATM runners appreciate the crowds of onlookers cheering them on and motivating them to give the race everything they’ve got! Bring your cowbells or noisemakers, carry a sign or just come out to watch along the streets throughout the course.

Here are some of the best places to watch the race:  

Finish Line Area/Mile 10: The number-one place to be a spectator! Watch 26,000+ runners cross the finish line in the Pentagon North Lot. To get to there, take the free event shuttle, presented by KBR. The shuttle will run continually between Pentagon North and Pentagon South lots from 4 a.m. –1 p.m.

Kennedy Center: Enjoy fantastic views of the action from this scenic location on Rock Creek Parkway. Get there by taking the Blue or Orange Metro lines to the Foggy Bottom Metro Station. If driving, be sure to check the Race Day Road Restrictions on the “Hotel & Travel” page.

Independence Avenue: There are many locations along this street to get a good view of the race. Afterward, head to the National Mall or a museum to continue your D.C. experience!

Army Navy Drive/Before Mile 9: This is where runners know they are nearing the finish line and are finding their second wind! From there, walk over to the Pentagon South Lot and catch the free event shuttle, presented by KBR, and head to the North Lot to enjoy the post-race activities.

What Not to Bring

Remember, no backpacks or gym bags are allowed. Visit Race Rules and Security for complete security information for the Pentagon and race course.

Reunion Area

Presented by KBR

Link up with family and friends at the Reunion Area, presented by KBR! This area in the Pentagon North Lot, between the free event shuttle stop and the pedestrian access to 110, will feature shaded tents with tables and seating. The tents will be marked A-F, G-L, M-R, and S-Z to make it easy to designate your meeting spot.
