The 2021 JMU Army Ten Miler Team - The race was conducted virtually by way of running in the Shenandoah Valley.

The James Madison University Army ROTC program annually participates in the Army Ten Miler race, held in Washington D.C. during the fall of each year.  Approximately 30,000 soldiers, retired personnel, family members, and ROTC Cadets run the race each year in support for Army soldiers and their families. The JMU Duke Battalion trains a team of dedicated runners to compete while showing their pride for our country and the soldiers who make sacrifices for the red, white, and blue.

Our Ten Miler Team begins training in August for the October race. While conducting physical training and running between 20 and 25 miles over 4 days a week, the team builds up their endurance and dedication for an event that means so much to veterans and soldiers. The event is much more than tying up your sneakers and hitting the road running. The support from one runner to another, along the 10-mile course, is unlike anything must Americans have ever experienced. The Army Ten Miler is a strong motivator to ROTC Cadets for the purpose of developing our leadership skills and serving our country.  We have a dedicated trainer team that dedicates their time in preparing our cadets for the race and helps them in many other ways as it relates to physical fitness and nutrition.
