D-Day Race 2020
Set to be the single largest running event the military has ever seen!
MRR offers soldiers stationed worldwide and members of the extended Army Family have the opportunity to participate in an exciting virtual event – with 10K, half marathon or marathon options, all to be completed during June 2020 to commemorate the 76th anniversary of D-Day.
Soldiers and members of the military family can participate from any outdoor location, in any gym or on any treadmill – whatever their global location.
Results can be compared against those of the same age, gender, military rank and worldwide location.
Choose from marathon (26.2 miles) half marathon (13.1 miles) or 10K (6.21 miles) with virtual routes based on the 1944 campaign – including locations like Sword Beach and Pegasus Bridge.
Those taking part will receive parcels including commemorative finishers medals to mark completion – whatever their worldwide location, via BFPO.
Registrations to run in the D-Day Race in 2020 are now open.
The race will run from 6th June – 30th June.
You must register by 29th June, and submit your evidence by 30th June to be eligible for a finishers medal and to appear on the official results.
Marathon – £15
Half Marathon – £15
10K – £15
An automatic donation of £5 will be made to the Soldiers’ Charity for every entry into the D-Day race. The Soldiers’ Charity provides financial and practical support to soldiers, veterans and their immediate family.
Please note a small non-refundable admin fee is charged on top of race entry by ACTIVE, who manage our online registration system.
