  1. You’re most welcome Sir Jovie. The publication would not have been possible without the help of my friend from PDI, Romina, who is also a runner. Romina, hats off to you!

    Congratulations Sir for a successful event and to everyone – you are all heroes in your own right. Treasure this moment and always remember what BDM stands for.

    Sir Jovie, I read somewhere that registration for BDM 102 2011 starts today (Friday, March 12). Is this true? If so, how and where do we register? Thank you po.


  3. A general organizes a race, an army soldier wins it, all to commemorate the Bataan Death March. It reads like fiction but is the real deal. Congratulations to the race director and the volunteers, the champion, all the finishers and their crew.

    1. I’ll be looking forward to reading the book!
