Due to COVID-19 this year’s event will be held virtually on and around the campus of ORMA. The date is Sunday, 20MAR22.
Normally, The Bataan Memorial Death March is conducted at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. Customarily, there are military and prior military members from all over the world participating in this event. This is a 26.2 mile race (marathon) over strenuous terrain through the high desert of New Mexico. ORMA has previously participated in this ruck march twice. This once in a lifetime opportunity.
