One of the best parts of being a part of the DC Capital Striders is the opportunity to volunteer at events all around the DC, Maryland and Virginia local communities. On Sunday, October 11, DCCS came out to support runners at one of DC's biggest races: The Army Ten-Miler (ATM).
Every year, the Army Ten-Miler is put on by the Military District of Washington (MDW), which conducts operations that prevent and respond to threats aimed at the National Capital Region.
DCCS was in good company, as more than 600 Soldiers from 3rd Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) volunteer at race weekend. Whether you would like to run the ATM or volunteer with DCCS, check back next October, when the ATM will be in its 32nd year. All race proceeds continue to benefit Soldier MWR programs.
