Terms & Conditions Agreement
In consideration of my entry being accepted in the White Sands Missile Range Bataan Memorial Death March, I, intending to be legally bound, do hereby, for myself, my heirs, executors and assigns, waive, release and forever discharge any and all rights and claims for damages that I might have or which may hereinafter accrue to me against the U.S. Government, U.S. Army, the White Sands Missile Range Memorial Death March Fund, their agents, officers, employees, sponsors, their representatives or successors arising out of my association with or participation in the White Sands Missile Range Bataan Death March. I assume all risks associated with participating in the White Sands Missile Range Bataan Memorial Death March. I know that this event, a 26.2 or 15 mile road march, entails walking or running long distances over uneven, sandy and undeveloped land. I understand that this is a potentially hazardous activity and that I should not enter and participate unless I am medically able and properly trained. I understand that I do not need a physical examination to participate in the Bataan Memorial Death March, but that I participate at my own risk.
I understand that there are many areas of White Sands Missile Range that are contaminated by unexploded munitions, for example, mines, ammunition and bombs. White Sands Missile Range has been used as an explosives test facility since its inception as a proving ground in 1945. Before that, troops training at Fort Bliss used some areas of the Range for artillery practice. Many munitions used at White Sands Missile Range were deliberately designed to blend in with the terrain and they may not be easily seen by the untrained observer. No area of the Range is completely free from unexploded munitions or other hazards created by White Sands operations. I will proceed carefully in all areas of the Range, but I will exercise special caution when in or near any area placarded or identified as a hazardous area. If I see something man made while on the Range that may be an ordnance item, I will report it to a White Sands Missile Range official without disturbing it or anything in its immediate vicinity.
Additionally, I understand that other serious dangers exist on White Sands Missile Range. The dangers include, but are not limited to, missile and rocket launch debris, rough terrain (both natural and man-made), wild animals, poisonous snakes, insects, dangerous weather, abandoned or lost equipment, power lines, and other man-made structures. I also understand that severe sunburn can occur in as little as 10 to 15 minutes at this altitude.
I further understand that neither the United States Government nor White Sands Missile Range will be responsible for my personal property. If I leave any items of personal property unattended for any reason, I understand that I assume the risk for all losses.
I agree to emergency medical treatment and to comply with all directives of medical personnel, whether U.S. Army, National Guard, or local civilians. If I am directed to cease participating in the Bataan Memorial Death March for medical reasons, I will comply. I acknowledge that I have no medical history or condition that would preclude me from participating in the March.
I agree to comply with any and all rulings of the March officials. I understand that decisions of the March officials, and any decisions made after appeal through the March Director are final.
I understand that if this race cannot be held because of an act of God or other circumstances beyond control of the March organizers, including military operational needs, any expenses incurred or entry fees paid by me will not be refunded. I release the rights to all photographic material, motion picture, recordings, computer information, and any other record of this event to be used for legitimate purpose without any obligation or compensation to me.
All persons under the age of eighteen (18), unless emancipated, must have the written consent of a parent or legal guardian to compete in the White Sands Missile Range Bataan Memorial Death March. I understand that the White Sands Missile Range Bataan Memorial Death March reserves the right to reject my entry at any time.
By agreeing to the terms and conditions of registration, I agree and consent that White Sands Missile Range-Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (WSMR-FMWR) may collect, use and disclose certain personally identifiable information to third parties for the successful and beneficial operation of the Bataan Memorial Death March. Personally identifiable information is information that can be used to locate me, contact me, or determine my specific identity.

To facilitate those services, WSMR-FMWR will disclose your name and email address to our photography and timing partner unless you opt out of such disclosure. Specifically, I agree that WSMR-FMWR may disclose my name and email address to MarathonFoto, a contracted photography company, and Innovative Timing Systems. WSMR-FMWR contracts with MarathonFoto, a photography company, to provide race day photographs of participants, at a cost, via email. Additionally, WSMR-FMWR provides names and email addresses of participants to Innovative Timing Systems; the official timing organization of the Bataan Memorial Death March.
I further understand that any agreement WSMR-FMWR enters into whereby it discloses my name and email address, such agreement will direct such third party to not disclose my name and email address further.
However, should I not want my name and/or email address disclosed, I may simply request nondisclosure, in writing, at the time of race package pick up, or send an email requesting nondisclosure to bataanmarch.com. I understand that if I opt out, I will not receive offers to purchase professionally taken photographs from the Bataan Memorial Death March.
