One of the races that I really hope to join one day is the Bataan 102 Ultramarathon, simply because it allows us to look back at our history and somewhat relive some of the sacrifices our war veterans encountered. The race is by no means easy—it’s 102 kilometers (about 63.38 miles, or roughly 2½ marathons) and has a cut-off time of 18 hours! It’s amazing what our heroes had to endure to gain back our freedom.
“A Salute to Our Heroes…Run, Endure, and Survive
the Bataan Death March”
The race starts at vicinity Km 00 at the Bataan Death March Park in Mariveles, Bataan and concludes in Km 102 in San Fernando, Pampanga. To the 82 ladies and gentlemen participating in this race, I salute you! Good luck on your endeavor. To the organizers, thank you for coming up with a meaningful race like this. I hope this becomes a regular event so many more could join in the future and get a chance to appreciate the significance of the Bataan Death March.
Good luck to all and congratulations!
