The 22nd Annual Bataan Memorial Death March

Join thousands of others on March 27th  in participating in the 22nd Annual Bataan Memorial Death March at White Sands Missile Range.

The Memorial March commemorates the Bataan Death March that occurred in the Philippines on 12 April 1942 and pays tribute to veteran survivors of this ordeal. The Memorial March takes participants through 26.2 miles of rugged desert terrain where elevation varies from 4,100 to 5,300 feet. In 2010, about 5,400 marchers and runners from the United States and allied countries came to White Sands Missile Range to participate in the United States' largest memorial road march competition.

Isn't a better name "22nd Annual Bataan Death March Memorial March" or something? The fact that "March" us being modified by "Death," is a little disconcerting. :-)
