Army Ten-Miler Announces Online Lottery
WASHINGTON – Army Ten-Miler officials announced that 400 ATM race entries will be offered to U.S. Armed Forces Servicemembers through a special, online lottery Aug. 11-15, 2008. “This is the Army’s race and many military personnel didn’t know where they would be in October when the race sold out on Apr. 21”, remarked Jim Vandak, race director. “We realize that the 400 military entries will not cover everyone. However, we wanted to do something special for the military and recognize their service to our country,” added Vandak.
The military lottery will be conducted online at www.armytenmiler.com. To register for the lottery, participants will need to have or use an email address with a .mil extension. The Army Ten-Miler lottery is open to all branches of the Armed Forces and winners will be randomly selected on Aug. 16. Registrants will be required to enter a valid credit card but the card will not be charged unless the registrant is selected as a winner. All registrants will receive an email notifying them if they were selected and a searchable list will be posted on the Army Ten-Miler confirmation page. All lottery winners will be required to present a military ID to obtain their race packets. All lottery entries are final – no transfers or refunds. Lottery winners can still be drafted onto an existing team for the team competition until Aug. 26, 2008.
