Army Ten-Miler 2021
KBR is a Co-Lead Sponsor of the 37th Annual Army Ten-Miler!
The Army’s yearly 10-mile race and expo takes place in our nation’s capital by the U.S. Army Military District of Washington (MDW). Attracting nearly 35,000 runners and 900 teams from around the world, the Army Ten-Miler (ATM) exemplifies the Spirit of Sport and the Spirit of a Nation. Participants include military, civilians, wheelchair athletes, and wounded warrior athletes. ATM’s mission is to support Army outreach, build morale, and promote physical fitness. Each year, more than 900 soldiers and 900 volunteers support the Army’s “world class” ATM race.
KBR’s Involvement: The Team Behind the Soldier
KBR's Government Services U.S. business is joining the Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) again this year on Sunday, October 10, as co-lead sponsor of the Army Ten-Miler (ATM) in Washington, D.C. Since 2005, KBR has been a major sponsor of the annual race, which directly benefits soldiers and their families.
KBR consistently supports its customers from behind the scenes. We are pleased to partner with AUSA and the Army Ten-Miler as another way to show our dedication to soldiers, veterans, and their families. KBR not only stands beside the troops when carrying out important missions worldwide but prides itself on standing with them and their families when they return home as well.
The race weekend will begin Saturday, October 9, with a runner's expo and pasta dinner. On Sunday, runners will gather in the early morning hours near the Pentagon to prepare for the race joined by supporters and KBR volunteers. Throughout the course of the day, KBR’s sponsorship provides free event shuttles, water stations, pre-packaged meal boxes, and reunion areas for runners to link up with family and friends. KBR also sponsors the Hooah-Tent Zone, where attendees have the chance to meet soldiers, listen to music, and –enjoy fan-favorite foods like Wisconsin bratwursts.
All proceeds from the ATM go to the U.S. Army's Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) program. The MWR program directly supports soldiers and their families by providing a variety of family, morale, welfare and recreation programs and services to enrich soldiers' and their families' lives culturally and creatively.
