Run to the Thunder 2017

It started out in 2012 as just a way to get American Legion Riders together from around the country to ride together in the annual Rolling Thunder Demonstration.  It has grown into a weekend-long celebration, where ALR members have a home-base and a group to ride with during the weekend.

We start out on Friday with vendors and food, a special Friday Night Dinner and POW Ceremony, and an escorted ride to the Candlelight Vigil in DC.  On Saturday, we have a very special ALR-led ceremony and wreath-laying at Arlington National Cemetery, followed by a barbecue, music, and vendors on Saturday afternoon & evening at Post 177.

We wrap things up early on Sunday morning with breakfast, a patriotic ceremony, and our

ALR “Ride to the Thunder”, as we join Rolling Thunder at the Pentagon.  Join your ALR friends May 26th – 28th for:

  • Friday Night Dinner
  • Ride to the Candlelight Vigil
  • Arlington Cemetery wreath-laying
  • Vendors and sewing
  • American Legion Emblem Sales
  • Barbecue and Bands
  • Patriotic Ceremony and

“Run To The Thunder 2017” !
