Greetings and welcome!
Greetings and welcome to the Joint Special Operations 10K Run / 5K Walk page, sponsored by the Special Operations Communicators Association. The JSO 10K is now in its 18th running and we look forward to another great year. This 10K is the only one of its kind in the Fayetteville area. This off-road course is a very challenging dirt, mud, gravel and sand trail. There is a 1,000 limit for registered participants. Last year at the 17th Annual JSO 10K we had 801 participants, thanks to all who came out and ran/walked last year. The race is open to all ages and abilities. The race is open to everyone. While the majority of our participants come from the Fort Bragg and surrounding community area, we have had folks come from out of state to join in the fun. It is a great time for all, bring your friends and family and enjoy a great event that you just cannot find anywhere else in this area.
