Signing Up and Accommodation

Here comes the fun bit!  You are about to participate in one of the most exciting events ever conceived. 


The D-Day 44 Challenge will be tough, make no mistake, but because you do all the hard work, we will ensure that you are fantastically well supported at every opportunity and there will be several feed stations along the route. There will be marshals along the route and way markers to point you in the right direction. Support vehicles will also be there to help stragglers, and to offer transport assistance to Relay Teams. The finish line will be at Café Gondrée where a celebration of the event will take place. A great time for those of you who can still stand!

Registration for the D-Day 44 Challenge costs £120 for each person in a Team of Two, or £75 for each person in a Relay Team.

Ultimately the aim of taking part in such an epic event is to help raise as much awareness and money for our registered charities Blesma, Combat Stress and Blind Veterans UK. All participants are asked to pledge to raise funds for the charities as follows; each person in a Team of Two must pledge to raise £300, while each participant in a Relay Team must pledge to raise £150. We have created a Virgin Money Giving Fundraising Hub to co-ordinate the fundraising  effort. You can create your own personal fundraising page from this Hub and it also accepts direct donations. All sponsorship money and donations collected via the Virgin Money Giving Fundraising Hub goes directly and entirely to the charities.

Planning to come to France to support someone taking part, but don’t want to take part yourself? Why not offer your services as a Volunteer instead? Volunteers are crucial to making the event a success. We need general volunteers to help with setting up the safety briefing, check-in and feed stations, to man check-in and feed stations, to marshal along the route, and to help us clear up afterwards. It’s all about helping to looking after people! We also need medical volunteers with specific skills such as doctors, paramedics, and physios. As well as anyone who can offer sports massage!
