The 10 mile course at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station is built for speed, just like a rocket! Beginning near Whites Point, the course veers left where you meander over the first of two causeways. Take in the sights, and you will be overwhelmed with the beauty you are seeing. Once you have crossed the causeway, you are now on a manmade portion of the course! You will stay on this for a small period of time, but you will then proceed onto the second and final causeway of the course.

After crossing the second causeway, the real fun begins! You will turn right onto Cape Road, but will shortly thereafter turn left to go toward PAROL Road. Once on PAROL Road, you will continue until you veer left on a banked corner and then immediately turn right to start your journey through history at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. The first piece of history you encounter, and continue across, is Launch Complex 34 (LC-34), which is the location of the Apollo 1 Memorial. LC-34 also served as the launch site for Apollo 7 to put Americans back into space. After heading over LC-34, you will continue on Freedom Road, but you will make a left onto ICBM Road, where you get to continue past important space history!

ICBM Road features numerous launch pads including Launch Complex 19 (LC-19) and Launch Complex 14 (LC-14). The second launch complex you pass is LC-19, which is the home of 27 major launches, including 10 manned Titan II/Gemini missions. Additionally, after passing two more launch complexes, you will continue to, and around, the control center of LC-14. This launch complex served as the launch point for four manned Mercury flights, including John Glenn’s Friendship 7 flight where Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth. After passing through LC-14 you will continue by the famous Mercury Monument, and back onto ICBM Road. You will continue on ICBM Road and then will turn left onto Central Control Road where you will rocket toward the finish line right past Cape Canaveral’s lighthouse on Lighthouse Road.

Participants can choose to run or walk their 10 mile race solo or with their own Space Crew. Space Crew teams are made up of 6 crew members that each run 10 miles to collectively reach the edge of outer space together (outer space is roughly 60 miles away)! You may choose to create your team when you register or you may create or join a team later on pending space available.
The 2nd Annual Space Force T-Minus 10-Miler will feature the XSM-64 Navaho. The featured rocket will be portrayed on the event’s official race shirts, finisher medals, commemorative patches, and more throughout 2023.

The XSM-64 Navaho missile was built as a proof-of-concept testbed for a proposed supersonic intercontinental cruise missile. The operational Navaho was intended to carry a nuclear warhead and have a combat range of about 8,000 kilometers (5,000 miles).

Although the Navaho did not become an operational weapons system, it proved invaluable as a research and development program. The XSM-64 located at the South Gate to Cape Canaveral Space Force Station is the only Navaho left in existence. Read more about the history of the XSM-64 Navaho here and at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Museum here.
