We did not know that they had turned the race into a "recreational event" until the finish line. We did not know they shortened the course until the finish line.
Army 10...the year of heat and humidity - by , 10/15/2017
5/ 5stars
This is one of my favorite races and always will be. Unfortunately mother nature played a nasty part this year and the heat and humidity made it a really tough one for so many. Army did a great job helping everyone that needed it and still managed to keep the race efforts all focused at the task at hand. Water stations were plentiful and the crowds were amazing. I quickly shuttled back to the start to find my car and head home after the finish. Can't wait to run it again! Hooah!

I love the Army Ten Miler - the energy, what it stands for, who it supports, and the course. However, they really messed up this year - the race was downgraded to a "fun run" due to too many heat casualties and they stated they did it to prevent any more, BUT this information wasn't passed along to runners UNTIL they made it into the finish line chute! Doing so did NOT help a single person they claimed to be "trying to protect". There were PLENTY of volunteers at every turn with at least one person with a radio or walkie, yet no one actually informed the runners. While I understand they cannot control the weather actions could've been taken to mitigate this- there was no Gatorade left for runners who were in waves 3-8! Hydration was planned before the race even started, yet the water stations were NOT where you stated they would be - again leaving those of us that planned it out fumbling at certain points - also wet towels, ice, could've easily been added even in the middle of the race. Again my biggest concern wasn't that you downgraded it to a fun run, but rather the lack of communication (in fact we signed up for text notifications in case of an emergency....yet never got a so for message)

The race was good, the course was different than previous times I ran the Army Ten Miler. I missed running in front of the Capitol building other than that the course was fine. Having Gatorade or another type of sports drink at the finish would have helped with the heat and humidity of this years race.

This with my third year run in the ATM and the hottest year. This affected my time. I normally would finish in about an hour and 50 minutes but it took me over two hours this time. I would ask that they have a water stop around mall five because I along with other runners were looking for water and it wasn't available until Mile 6. This was very detrimental in this race and due to the heat and humidity.

Amazing experience for many reasons. I met some inspirational people throughout the weekend. As this was the largest and longest race I had participated in I was unsure what to expect. Although I understand the decision to convert the race to a recreational status it was clearly communicated to those on the course. Some had their course shortened due to the heat and course conditions. It was unclear if those like myself who completed the Ten miles after the 10:08 decision would receive times or not. I did receive a time that did not match my Garmin . Off by 6 minutes but I will take a slower time rather than none.

Overall the race was an amazing experience. This was my first big race ( distance and participants) Selected my finish time on the limits of course time allowed. I met some incredible people on the course and afterwards. The course as well marked and very organized. The cheer squads were beyond expectations. However the decision to convert race to "recreational" status was not clearly communicated to those on the course. Although I understand the decision to shorten the course given the heat and conditions it was disappointing to those who had a shortened course imposed on them. There was much confusion whether I would have a recorded time or not as I finished after 10:08 but completed the ten miles
