The Clemson 8 Challenge is a week-long event to honor eight Clemson alumni who participated in the infamous Bataan Death March early in World War II, including Col. Ben Skardon, 103, who has walked in an annual commemorative event in New Mexico in recent years.
The challenge will be the week of March 21-28 and is open to the public. It is a virtual race so participants can walk, run, bike or hike on the course of their choosing. Participants can complete it in one day or throughout the eight-day period. All proceeds from the $30 (adult) and $20 (student) entry fee will benefit the Clemson University ROTC program to fund scholarships and send a group of cadets to compete in the 2022 Bataan Memorial Death March.
