ARLINGTON, Va.  -- Army Ten-Miler officials announced that priority registration for all U.S. Service members will open at 6:30 a.m. EDT, May 5. 

Other runners, who have participated in seven or more Army Ten-Miler races, will also be able to register beginning May 5. 

U.S. Service members must use a ".mil" address to register. Officials will post a searchable database for seven-time or more Army Ten-Miler runners.

For the public at large, general registration will open at 6:30 a.m. EDT, May 19. Entry is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Race registration will cap at 35,000 runners, officials said.

Installations will be able to obtain pre-paid entries for their teams during both registration sessions. 

For those who miss registration in May, the Army Ten-Miler online transfer program will open June 2. 

Last year nearly 1,500 runners were able to enter the race through the transfer program. 

The 31st Annual Army Ten-Miler will begin at 8 a.m., Sunday, Oct. 11 - the day before the opening of the Association of the United States Army's Annual Meeting and Exposition at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Oct. 12-14.

Produced by the U.S. Army Military District of Washington, the Army Ten-Miler always attracts military and civilian runners from around the world.

All race proceeds benefit Soldier and Family morale, welfare, and recreation programs.

The race's two-day Health and Fitness EXPO will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Oct. 9 - 10, both days. 

The Marriott Crystal Gateway Hotel in Arlington, Virginia, will again serve as the headquarter hotel for this year's race. 

The hotel, located less than a mile from the Pentagon on the Metro Blue and Yellow lines, will host the all-you-can-eat pasta dinner on Saturday evening, Oct. 10.
