Remember who you are marching for during the Bataan Memorial Death March

It was beyond a difficult and challenging time for the 75,000 American and Filipino soldiers who were captured by Japanese forces on April 9, 1942 after months of fighting in harsh weather during World War II. Their bravery and resilience during such a trying period deserve our utmost respect and admiration.

Honor them at the 35th Bataan Memorial Death March scheduled for Saturday, March 16, 2024, at 7 a.m. at White Sands Missile Range. White Sands Missile Range will provide further information on the registration opening date, early bird specials, and an exclusive discount for past participants of the 2023 race.

Challenge yourself and honor their memory. To learn more, visit
