6th Annual K.I.A. Memorial Roadmarch (KMR)

Orchard Park, NY

Please join us on Saturday August 17, 2019 at 11:00am for the 7th Annual K.I.A. Memorial Roadmarch (KMR).  This unique event is a 10K Ruck (walk/run) carrying canned goods through Chestnut Ridge Park.  It is a fun & challenging way to remember those Military members who were Killed In Action serving our Country.  

You can walk for fun through the ridge with or without carrying the food. If you want to compete for trophies register w/4 people for the KMR Challenge & beat the other KMR Squads carrying a combined 200lbs of food! This is the best 10k around! Your registration includes a custom swag bag, KIA Memorial t-shirt, finish line gift, trophies (if part of trophy challenges) for 1st 2nd 3rd place, day care for your children (contact us for more info), beer, pizza, wings, and LOTS of FUN!

ONLY THE 1ST 500 PRE-REGISTERED ARE GUARANTEED A SWAG BAG, T-SHIRT AND FOOD. We will make every effort to accommodate those registered day off.  A shirt coupon will be issued and up to 1500 will receive a finish line gift. 

                About this event:  Open to EVERYONE!

Race day registration and check-in starts at 08:00 and we encourage participants to arrive early to avoid the lines! Once registered you will join us in a 10km Roadmarch (walk/run) thru Chestnut Ridge Park. Each New York State Military member that was Killed in Action has a sign along the entire 10km Route. You and your friends simply walk the route carrying canned 30 pounds of canned goods, OR simply donate the food before and then go stroll through the park OR  just hangout to cheer the road marchers on. You can carry the 30 pounds of food or simply donate it after weigh in. It is totally up to you!



CHECK THIS OUT! We at KMR like to change things up and go BIG or go home. So with that said we are pleased to announce The BAT. In addition to the trophies given to the KMR Squad Challengers we will give one BIG ASS TROPHY (BAT) to the Team with the most road marchers! This will be a traveling trophy that is brought back each year. Your team name and year will be placed /inscribed on the trophy! Create a team with as many people as you can and the largest team wins the Trophy! Each member of the winning team will receive a smaller replica trophy as a keepsake!

NOW if you want to compete we have something for you! Also open to EVERYONE, just create a 4 person KMR Challenge Squad, come up with a clever name and collectively carry 200 pounds of non-perishable food. See the Rules Section for more information. This is where it gets competitive! You walk the same route, but we’ve added five Drill Sergeant Inspired Challenges (four individual, one team). Each KMR Squad Member completes one of the 4 Challenges and receive a special KMR Challenge Swag. The first squad that completes the 4 individual challenges, the team Challenge and crosses the finish line as a KMR Squad with all four KMR Challenge swag wins the trophy… and bragging rights.
