It does seem 10 miles was once more popular. There was the Broad Street Run in Philly, the Cherry Blossom 10 in DC, Annapolis 10 miler - those are all still pretty big races.

I was fortunate to run two 10 milers last fall - one on a beautiful fall day at the Yorktown Battlefield and one on the flat streets of VA Beach. It is a very fun distance to race. But now that I think about it, I think those are the only 2 10 milers around here - but there are probably a 10 to a dozen half marathons.
