Runner's World highlights local 10-Miler


Runner’s World has chosen the Papa John’s 10 Miler as one of the “Six Big 10-Milers To Run” in the United States.

The local race, which debuted in 2001 as the third leg in the Louisville Triple Crown of Running, is listed with the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten-Mile Run in Washington, D.C.; the Blue Cross Broad Street Run 10 Miler in Philadelphia; the Crim 10-Miler in Flint, Mich.; the Annapolis 10-Mile Run in Annapolis, Md.; and the Army Ten-Miler in Washington, D.C.

Papa John’s representatives expect nearly 6,000 runners and walkers will participate in the race on March 31. It is the second-smallest race on the list; the Annapolis 10-Mile Run is the smallest.

“We’re very pleased to place on this list,” Chris Sternberg, one of the directors of the Papa John’s 10 Miler, said in a press release. “It is a testament to the great participation that we receive from the community and great recognition for the work of our Papa John’s Team members and volunteers. The runners, walkers and community in general are excited to participate, and Runner’s World recognizes that fact.”
