Remembrance Day Virtual Races

This is an interesting way to commemorate Remembrance Day in the age of the pandemic – and support the Juno Beach Centre.

(From 1K or 1500m. From 8K to 21.1K…all the way up to 64K! Just look at all the choices!)

Register now for one of three historically significant virtual race distances and $10 from each entry will go to support the Juno Beach Centre honouring those brave Canadians who fought in Normandy.
This shorter distance event (1500m) is for ideal children or older participants and is named for a particular strongpoint and 1500 metre stretch of beach overcome by Canadian Troops on D-Day.
The Juno Beach 8K is named for the entire 8-kilometre stretch of sand featuring coastal villages code name “JUNO” for the D-Day invasion and secured by Canadian and British soldiers.
The total number of troops that landed on Juno Beach on D-Day was approximately 21,000. We offer the Remembrance 21.1K (which is 21.1 kilometers long or a half marathon), in honour of those troops.
