The Army Ten Miler is now in its 28th year. Started in 1985, the ATM has become the third largest road race in the world, attracting 30,000 runners, half of them currently serving in the US armed forces, and supported by 1200 military personnel.
The ATM Fitness Expo is held in conjunction with the event with participant registration. At registration entrance, Army Reserve Careers Division manned a recruiting and retention booth, being available during all hours of the expo and available to all of the 15,000 participating service members. LTC Stephen Kleck, commander of ARCD 3rd Battalion, personally handed out 1200 American flags to attendees.
