In 2009 Lt Col. Mike McErlain, with his wife Jo, set up the D-Day 44 Challenge. Sadly, Mike died while doing the run on 6 June 2013, but with the blessing of Mike’s widow, Jo, the event returns in 2018 to raise money for Blesma the Limbless Veterans, Blind Veterans UK and Combat Stress. Limited places are available for runners to take on the 44 mile challenge. The route, which hugs the Normandy coastline, will take in villages, fields, beaches and D-Day celebrations. Runners will start at Point Du Hoc and finish at the historic Pegasus Bridge.
