The route plan for the 2014 USAA-sponsored American Legion Legacy Run has been finalized. The Run will traverse 1,336 miles through eight states, eventually ending up in Charlotte, N.C., on Aug. 21, 2014.

The ride leaves Indianapolis on Aug. 17 and will make stops in Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia before ending up in King’s Mountain, N.C. The Legacy Run even will make a stop at The American Legion World Series in Shelby, N.C., on Aug. 19 for the series championship game.

The route is as follows:

Aug. 17 – Indianapolis to Pikeville, Ky. (stops in Florence, Lexington and Stanton, Ky.)

Aug. 18 – Pikeville, Ky., to Danville, Va. (stops in Grundy and Bedford, Va., and Princeton/Bluefield, W.Va.)

Aug. 19 – Danville, Va., to Shelby, N.C. (stops in Winston-Salem, Statesville, Shelby and King’s Mountain, N.C.)

Aug. 20 – King’s Mountain, N.C., to Buford, Ga. (stops in Waynesville, N.C., and Rabun Gap, Ga.)

Aug. 21 – Buford, Ga., to King’s Mountain, N.C. (stops in White Plans and Rock Hill, S.C.)

The complete route is available here.

Eight previous Legacy Runs have raised more than $4 million for The American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund, which was established so the children of servicemembers killed on or after Sept. 11, 2001, have the opportunity to pursue a college education.

Be sure to read the Safety Corner riding tips in the ALR newsletter. There are up to date articles covering some of the many things you should be mindful of on the Legacy Run and every time you throw a leg over a scooter.

To bad all national bike groups couldn't plan their rides to end at the Finally on Sept 11 in Washington DC with the 2 million Bikers to DC 9/11 memorial.

Working on that. Expect great camping at Bessemer City post in NC near Charlotte. Good thought. Will look at camping at all stops.

Great route! I will make the run at long last. I am also a long timeUSAA member and am glad they sponsor the run. However, I think we should unite in asking them why they refuse to insure our motorcycles!

Hey man I agree we need a united front, but my experience has shown USAA rates are much higher. I had great rates with GEICO. What I would like to see is a united fight to have VA push to open enrollment in reasonable health insurance for disabled brothers and sisters. You know such as CHAMPVA or others.

I did neglect to ask if an approximate time has been established for the group to be at fuel stop in Floence, Ky. Can you give time and place so we might meet the group? Jim Hudson Secretary of ALR Post 256 Loveland, Ohio

Jim, we not only want, but need your members' help. Looks like KY riders can help at the Walton exit (south of Florence, KY) But...I would love to see Ohio Riders at the Ohio state lines and at the Walton, KY refueling. We enter Ohio this year. Ohio ALR deserves to be seen.

Question...If we here, at Post 256 Loveland, Ohio wish to meet with the group at Florence, Ky.... FIRST: I assume it will not cause an issue with the group? And ... SECOND Where are you planning to stop? Jim Hudson Secretary Post 256 ALR Loveland, Ohio
