*As this is a military installation, ALL participants must register and have a race bib to access the race course. NO EXCEPTIONS. Spectators and those without bibs may be in the finisher festival area.*
Welcome to the 3rd Annual Navy 10 Miler, hosted by NAS JRB Fort Worth, the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth.
The base dates back nearly 80 years; but, this is our 3rd annual 5 & 10-mile event open to anyone who registers. This event provides you the opportunity to see the many aircraft that are stationed aboard the installation. Whether you are a seasoned runner or just getting started, the Navy 10 Miler will provide you with an unforgettable running experience.
SO MUCH TO SEE
Our route will take you right down the base runway. Along the way, you’ll have exclusive views of some of the aircraft that call our base home, including:
-F35C from Lockheed Martin
-Air Force F-16
-Texas Air National Guard CH-47
-Texas Air National Guard C-130H
-Fat Albert-a Blue Angels retired C-130T: This Fat Albert had been with the Blue Angels for 17 years and has flown more than 30,000 hours in front of millions of fans!
*subject to change based on mission requirements
Geared for both experienced and novice runners, this flat 5 & 10 mile course will provide an excellent opportunity to SHATTER PRs and will be clearly marked with water stations along the way. The 5 miler provides the same air power excitement as the 10 miler in a smaller package! In the fans’ section, we’ll have a finisher festival featuring a variety of vendors and food trucks. Everyone is sure to have a good time!
The Navy 10 Miler is hosted by NAS JRB Fort Worth’s Navy Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) team. MWR provides a variety of services and programs on base to support the mission of the service members.
