Bataan Death March Logo

October 1, 2011

Today is the last day of application for the BDM 102 & 160 Ultra Marathon Races. If you missed this date, then you will not be considered for screening for the next year’s (2012) events. There will be no extension of this deadline.

It does not mean that if you applied, you will be positively considered as one of the participants of the event. First, you should be able to have finished at least, a full marathon race. If you have finished an ultra marathon race (without any full marathon race), whether with any of the PAU Races or FrontRunner Magazines’ Races in Cebu & Manila, you will be considered. Second, you should start securing your Medical Certificate or Doctor’s Certification attesting the fact that you can endure a long distance run. Without this doctor’s/medical approval, you may lose your chance of joining this event. You can immediately scan the document and send it immediately to my e-mail address @ Deadline of submission is not later than November 15, 2011.

For those who have applied for the BDM 160, you are considered for screening if you have finished the BDM 102 within the prescribed cut-off time of 18 hours. It means that the only qualifying race for this event is a BDM 102 finish! If you are a foreign runner applying for this event, you have to finish FIRST the BDM 102.

Screened/Accepted applicants will start receiving their respective Letter/s of Invitation for the BDM 102 & 160 on or before October 15, 2011 through their e-mail address submitted in their application through letters of intent or on the comment of the BDM Pages in this blog. If you don’t receive any Letter of Invitation, then you are not included in the list of participants. We will not give any explanation why you are not included and we will not entertain any re-consideration from your end. You can try your luck again to apply for the next edition of the said races.

We are not raising our Registration Fees for the 2012 edition. BDM 102’s Registration Fee is Two Thousand Five Hundred Pesos (P 2,500.00) for the Local Residents and One Hundred (US) Dollars ($ 100.00) for the Foreign Runners. BDM 160’s Registration Fee is Five Thousand Pesos (P 5,000.00) for the Local Residents and One Hundred Fifty (US) Dollars for the Foreign Runners.

Invited participants are given up to November 15, 2011 to pay their respective registration fee. There will be no extension of deadline on this matter. Non-payment on the deadline would mean non-inclusion in the final list of participants. Local Residents can ONLY pay their Registration Fee through LANBANK deposit @ this savings account: #1686-0795-85 in behalf of Jovenal Narcise. Foreign runners have to pay their registration fees through Western Union. Copy of deposit slip/payment SHOULD be scanned and sent to immediately for verification. This is a MUST as we’ll no longer ask you to bring your deposit/payment slip at the Starting Area on Race Day. Registration Fees are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERABLE.

The final lists of participants for the BDM 102 and BDM 160 will be published in this blog and at not later than December 1, 2011.

Good luck and train well!

    Sir Jovie! Kumusta na? I sort of found these posts via google images in our old interview at tbr.

    Hope am no too late for this posting. I just read this blog from FB search. this is in response to martin pascual’s query on April 2009 about contacting the runners for badwater race. Why don’t you talk to guiness book of world records for longest run and highly decorated ultramarathon runner, Mr. Max Telford. He started the Bataan Death March solo ultramarathon run in 1985. To which many of the filipino detractors sneered at his incredible feat. He now lives in Cebu and am sure would be more than happy to share his incredible feats with you. email him at

    Many years ago when I srated running these Ultra Marathons people thought I was crazy. It gave me great satifaction in doing something that no other person had ever attempted or done before, ever, in the whole world. Now we have Ultra’s all over the world, in every country, even in the Philippines. This give me tremendous satisfaction in being a pioneer.
