Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield Morale Welfare and Recreation held a team qualifier for the Army 10-miler, June 9 at Donovan Field.

The 10-mile race was one of three races that will be held to determine who will represent Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield at the 34th annual Army 10-miler on Oct. 7 in Washington D.C.

Kristy Adams, Sports, Fitness and Aquatics Director, MWR FSGA and HAAF said they will host three races to give Soldiers returning from deployment over the summer an opportunity to qualify for the team, and all Soldiers assigned to Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield are eligible to try out for the team.

The first Army 10-miler was held in 1985. Each year, the race takes place in October in Washington, D.C., to build espirit de corps, support Army fitness goals and enhance relationships with the community.

The team will consist of six members --four men and two women said Adams. 

Participants of the race will compete against more than 900 teams and 35,000 runners from all over the world, according to the Army 10-miler website.

Adams said the second qualifying race will be held July 14 at 6 a.m., on Donovan Field, and the final qualifying race will be held Aug. 11 at 6 a.m., on Donovan Field. 

“We will select the members of the team based on the best qualifying times,” said Adams.
