Legacy Run registration already at 300-plus

Registration for the 2019 American Legion Legacy Run already has surpassed 310 participants in two months. To register online, click here.

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.

Online registration is simple and easy with a credit card payment. Those preferring to print and mail a registration form with a check or money order need to continue through the online registration process. Instructions are provided on the information review page to print the registration form and mail payment.

A reminder that pre-payment for fuel and meals is mandatory, in order to avoid dealing with cash on organized fuel stops and to be able to properly advise meal locations how much food to prepare.

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.

The Legacy Run will depart American Legion Post 347 in Lady Lake, Fla., on Aug. 18, and arrive in Indianapolis 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.

The 2018 Legacy Run raised a record $1,300,804 for The American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund, the fifth-straight year the ride has raised more than $1 million. The Legacy Fund provides college assistance for the children of U.S. military personnel killed on active duty on or after Sept. 11, 2001, as well as children of post-9/11 veterans with a combined VA disability rating of 50 percent or higher.
