Fort Liberty's Premiere 10K

Greetings and Welcome!

The JSO 10K is a unique trail race located on the beautiful and scenic tank trails and fire breaks of Historic Fort Liberty. This all off-road course is a very challenging dirt, mud, gravel and sand trail. There is an 800 limit for registered participants. The race is open to all ages and abilities. While the majority of our participants come from the Fort Liberty and surrounding community, 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. The JSO 10K is part of the Triangle Race Series.
The Joint Special Operations 10K Run / 5K Walk page is sponsored by the Special Operations Communicators Association. For any questions related to the race, please send your questions to
