The USO in partnership with the Pennsylvania Army National Guard Training Center is hosting the Fort Indiantown Gap 12th annual March for the Fallen on Saturday, September 23, 2023 at Strickler Field. This event is rain or shine!

March for the Fallen is an event for the military and civilian communities to join annually in honoring the memory of all fallen service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of our great nation. The events are the 28- and 14-mile marches, 5k run/walk, a 28-mile handcycle and a virtual 28-mile march or 5k run/walk. Spectators are also welcome in support of the event but are not able to be along the march route. The safest and most comfortable place for spectators is Strickler Field.

The 28- and 14-mile marches offer challenging routes varying from asphalt roads to rolling and steep mountain trails of dirt and gravel on the training lands of Fort Indiantown Gap. The course start point elevation is 500.77’ and climbs to 1239.43’ on Second Mountain of the Appalachian Mountain Range; low point elevation is 484.28’ and is within the first mile of the course.

There will be a chip start and finish. Participants must pass through the chip start line for safety purposes. Bibs are required to be on the courses. Those found on the courses without the proper event bib will be removed.
