ALR Run To The Thunder Weekend 2019

May 24-26

Washington, DC 

A number of great events are again planned for American Legion Riders over Memorial Day Weekend 2019!

American Legion Post 177 in Fairfax, VA is pleased to once more serve as your host Post, and as your hub for many activities throughout the Memorial Day Weekend.  

We will also host some special and honored guests, and a number of Gold Star families will ride with us throughout the weekend.

On Sunday, the morning of Rolling Thunder, the ALR will depart Post 177 early, and link up with another major group of riders called "The Ride of the Patriots", approximately 5 miles from the Post.

Our ALR will be able to ride as an organized body within this group of approximately 4,000 motorcycles, and we'll have a full police escort to a good location in the Pentagon North Parking lot.

We will be able to expose many more thousands of riders and onlookers to the American Legion Riders!  

Our goal is to ride as an organized and respectful body, representing the American Legion.

For details throughout the weekend, please keep up to date with the AGENDA posted on our website at:


**NOTE: If you plan to join us at Arlington for the wreath-laying (and not ride there with us), please make sure you go to the Arlington House - also called the Lee Mansion, NOT the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers.  Our ceremony is near the Arlington House at the original Tomb of the Unknowns, called the "Civil War Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers."



HOTELS: See this page to search for local hotels near Fairfax Post 177.

A buffet breakfast available at Post 177 on Sunday morning from 0430 to 0600 hrs.

There is only limited water & refreshments available in Pentagon parking lots.  Please BRING YOUR OWN WATER AND SNACKS.  Be prepared for the unexpected.  It can be HOT and dry in the Pentagon parking lots, and the wait can be hours long before we move.
