What is the KIA Road March

The K.I.A. Memorial RoadmarchTM (KMR) is a 501(c)3!! KMR directly help support Veterans, their families & Veterans organizations in Western New York all while Honoring Our Fallen. After each annual KMR event all non-perishable food is placed in trucks to go to 3 food pantries to help Veterans & their families that need it.

We would like you & your fiends to join us at Chestnut Ridge for a 10K ruck march with a ruck full of canned goods. It’s a fun and challenging way to remember members of our armed forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country and to help feed local Veterans.

The K.I.A. Memorial Roadmarch can be done for fun or as a competition, it's up to you and your friends!

K.I.A. Memorial Roadmarch- a fun walk thru the Ridge!

The K.I.A. Memorial RoadmarchTM (or "KMR") is a 10K ruck march through Chestnut Ridge Park in Orchard Park, NY.

Participants will march, run, walk or crawl, a 10K either as a Individual or Team while carrying rucks (back packs) filled with non perishable goods ( or choose to not carry and donate before the Roadmarch we just ask that you bring a minimum of 30 lbs to donate.) *See rules about weight for certain categories. 

The Roadmarch is open to all – current / retired military, first responders, civilians- EVERYONE!. 

* If you can't carry the weight and just want to walk we ask that you register, join us and donate the minimum of 30 lbs food at the beginning, no need to carry that weight, just have fun! 


Register and create a Team with a cool name & if you have the most people and carry the most total weight WIN the KMR BAT (Big ass trophy) CUP! Each year the KMR BAT CUP will have the Team name inscribed on it.  Return it each year for another Team to have a chance to win it! The question is, will you DOMINATE each year and have the biggest Team name all over it?


KMR Challenge -strictly for those that want to compete!

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. You can have as many 4 person Squads as you would like, just different names! Compete amoungst your friends Squad and all the other Squads.

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 Squad Challenge and crosses the finish line as a KMR Squad with all four KMR Challenge swag wins the trophy… and bragging rights.
