Bernard and Wandahl take titles in the Ten-Mile Run Off at Fort Rucker

2017 Fort Rucker Ten-Mile Run OffThe Army Ten-Miler has always been an autumn race. 2017 is no different; the 33rd Army Ten-Miler comes to the streets of Washington, DC on 8 October 2017. However, no athlete can start training just a few days before a ten-mile race and expect to be successful. That's why at Fort Rucker, Alabama--where teams have had a long history of success in the Army Ten-Miler--the selection race for their ten-mile teams has always been a spring event. It was a spring event once again on Saturday morning, 29 April 2017, when Cyrus Bernard won the Fort Rucker Ten-Mile Run-Off in 65:04, finishing with a 700-meter lead on the next runner. Kristine Wandahl was the women's champ as well as the top master runner in the race, placing sixth overall in 78:44.


Fawad Safi took second in the Ten Miler, running . Six week earlier Safi had won Fort Rucker's Shamrock Shuffle 10K, running 18:52. Daniel Prial placed third in 68:23.


Marjory Bernard was second in the women's standings and tenth overall in 91:08. Mollie Rayburn was the third woman and twelfth overall in 99:08.


27 athletes finished Fort Rucker's 2017 Ten-Mile Run-Off.
