THE NAVY TEN NAUTICAL MILER!
Proudly presented by Morale, Welfare and Recreation Department
Naval Support Activity Mid-South - Millington, TN
Sunday, 5 June 2022
Much like planes, our event team performs best against the wind.
The team is excited and eager to present the runners in our 2022 race,
what we believe will be a truly amazing race experience.
Our 2022 event will kick off with a commemoration for
the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Midway
and a flyover from a WW2 aircraft at the start line.
Followed by an exhilarating run along our NEW COURSE winding through
one of the finest Military Golf Courses in the world
as well as the largest Solar farm in Tennessee!
And after several nautical miles of scenic Tennessee roads as the final nautical miles
count down participants zoom pass not one... but two historic Navy Airplanes,
and through the inside of an actual Airplane hangar
at the Millington-Memphis Airport just a short distance to the finish line.
Just before the rounding corner to the finish line runners will begin to hear
all the friends and family waiting to cheer them on for the last quarter mile
until they cross the finish line and receive the NAVY10NM ANCHOR
and move on to the recovery area
and to one of the best post race parties on the planet.
Online registration is open!
Registration fee includes your race entry, timing,
post-race party entry for food and beverages, a tech shirt, goody bag,
and THE INCREDIBLE NAVY10NM FINISHERS MEDAL.
18 March - 30 April $75 | 1 May – 5 June $85
Active Duty Military Rate March 18– May 30 - $65
THIS IS THE FIRST FOOT RACE OF ITS KIND;
The Navy Ten Nautical Miler (NAVY10NM) was the first foot race to be officially sanctioned
by a national governing body for track & field, long distance running,
and race walking in the United States to be based on nautical miles.
The desire is to see this event become a world-class, national-scale event on a par
with races like the Marine Corps Marathon, Air Force Marathon and Army 10 Miler.
The event is being coordinated in association with the Memphis Runners Track Club,
the national governing body for track & field, long distance running,
and race walking in the United States.
WHY 10 NAUTICAL MILES?
Our unique race distance represents the distance from a ship to the horizon line.
Our runners gladly take on that challenge to commemorate the work of our US Military.
For you landlubbers, a 10 nautical mile race is similar in length to a half-marathon.
