Help us welcome veterans to Corydon!
On Tuesday, May 24th, the veterans’ motorcycling organization Run for the Wall will pass through downtown Corydon on the way to the Harrison County Fairgrounds for dinner and a ceremony. The riders are on a ten-day journey to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., where they will convene with other participating motorcyclists from across the country. This is the first official visit for the group since 2019, as the rides since have been cancelled due to Covid precautions.
Harrison County residents and visitors are invited to welcome the motorcyclists by lining the sidewalks of Capitol Avenue in downtown Corydon. Their expected arrival time is approximately 5:30 p.m. Updates on their location will be posted to this event page, or call 1-888-738-2137 for more information.
The riders will be escorted through downtown Corydon from I-64 exit 105 by the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department. Several organizations, including local veterans’ groups, are assisting with any needs the riders might have during their stay in Corydon. The Harrison County Convention & Visitors Bureau will provide the Run for the Wall participants a grab-and-go breakfast on the morning of May 25th before they continue their ride.
To date, 471 riders are registered for Run for the Wall’s central route—which passes through Corydon—and they plan to meet with an additional 1,000 riders from three other routes in Washington, D.C., on May 27th.
They will be arriving sometime after 5:30 p.m.
