E-mail Print PDF

Online registration for The American Legion Legacy Run is now live. Click here to register for this year's ride.





Online registration for riders and passengers will end Aug. 11. All riders and passengers who register online before Aug. 1 will be mailed the registration packet with patches and map book materials before national staff departs. Those who register on or after Aug. 1 will be mailed their registration packets on or after Sept. 1 (while supplies last) as staff returns from convention duties.

The Legacy Run, which raises money for The American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund, will depart American Legion Post 347 in Lady Lake, Fla., on Aug. 18, and arrive in Indianapolis, Ind., on Aug. 22 for the 2019 American Legion National Convention.

Along the way, the ride will make stops in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Kentucky, before ending up at Kenneth N. Dowden Wayne Post 64 in Indianapolis.

Online registration is simple and easy with a credit card payment. If you would prefer to print and mail a registration form with a check or money order, please continue through the online registration process. Instructions are provided on the information review page to print your registration and mail payment.

A reminder that pre-payment for fuel is mandatory, in order to avoid dealing with cash on organized fuel stops.

For those wanting to support the Legacy Run but are unable to participate, online registration for supporters (non-riders and non-passengers) will continue until Sept. 7. Supporter registrations of $25 or more will also receive a thank-you package while supplies last.

This Department of Defense program calls for the funeral director to request military funeral honors on behalf of the veteran’s family.
