JSA supports epic D-Day run

Pegasus Bridge is the final destination for the runners

UK: Specialist air conditioning and chiller contractor JSA Service is backing an epic endurance run organised to mark the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. 

The Middlesex-based company has become the first sponsor of the 75-mile Run To Pegasus, which traces the route taken by glider pilots in the advance wave from Tarrant Rushton Airfield in Dorset to Pegasus Bridge in Normandy.

JSA is sponsoring some of the vital support vehicles required by the The Veterans Charity to provide safe back up for the 186 runners.

The charity run takes place from June 4-6, passing through Dorset countryside and the New Forest, before heading to Southampton and Fareham, and finishing at the Ferry Terminal in Portsmouth. Runners and supporters will then board a ferry to Caen in North Western France for the final leg to Pegasus Bridge.

Allan Wilkinson: proud sponsor

Allan Wilkinson, director of Sunbury-on-Thames based JSA Service, said: “Members of my family have served in the Royal Navy and special forces, and we are proud to be sponsoring and participating in the Run To Pegasus to honour those who spearheaded the D-Day landings. It is an excellent initiative and will raise vital funds to help support veterans and their families.”
