10K Course Map & Description

2023 10K Course Map

Starting just outside the National Museum of the United States Air Force, the 10K route will warm you up quickly as you make your way uphill to the United States Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine. Roll along gentle hills past the Air Force Research Labs and the Air Force Institute of Technology before cruising down a large downhill back towards the finish. The final mile levels out and you will finish along the old flight line under the wingtips of historic aircraft in the museum’s Air Park.

Athletes Amenities

All registered 10K athletes will receive a race shirt, virtual goodie bag, and a complimentary commemorative patch. Athletes who are 21 years or older will also receive a voucher for a complimentary beer at the finish line.
