The 2013 Army Ten-Miler special online servicemembers’ lottery is now open to all U.S. servicemembers, who plan to participate in the race.

According to race officials, servicemembers must use a .mil email address when registering for the lottery, which opened Aug. 1.

Lottery registration will be conducted at www.armytenmiler. com, and 500 registrants will be randomly selected by a computer generated drawing, Friday.

Registrants will be required to enter a valid credit card, but will not be charged unless selected. Through Tuesday, all registrants will receive an email notification stating whether or not they were selected. The searchable database on the Registration/Confirm tab of the Army Ten-Miler website will be updated with the names of the runners that were selected by Aug. 23.

Lottery winners who are unable to run may transfer their registra­tion through the Army Ten-Mil­er Transfer Program until Aug. 30, or join a team until Sept. 6.
