What is the significance of the “Juno Beach 8K”? D-Day, June 6th 1944, was among the greatest moments of the 20th century. The landings started the battle to liberate France from Nazi Germany. The Canadians stormed an 8-kilometre stretch of sand featuring coastal villages fortified into German strongholds. Code-named JUNO, some 14,000 Canadian soldiers with hometowns from coast to coast landed here. A further 7,000 British troops joined them. I am running in remembrance of every Canadian or Allied soldier who landed at Juno Beach.
