26th Annual Bataan Memorial Death March

White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico

March 19-22, 2015

Registration will open mid-November 2014

The Bataan Memorial Death March is a challenging march through the high desert terrain of White Sands Missile Range, conducted in honor of the heroic service members who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II, sacrificing their freedom, health and, in many cases, their very lives.

Choose between two routes

The GREEN (full) route is the full 26.2-mile Bataan Memorial Death March. Awards are presented to the top two finishers in each category.  Those marching the 26.2 miles will be able to experience, in part, what Soldiers endured during their long forced trek through the Philippines.

The BLUE (honorary) route is 14.2 miles in length. This shorter march is designed for participants who would like to memorialize Bataan but do not wish to march the full 26.2-mile route. There are NO awards given for this shorter march.
