2023 Scooter Cannonball Route

The 2023 Scooter Cannonball will begin in San Clemente, California at Calafia Beach Park on June 18, 2023, and conclude eight days later at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina on June 25th. The total distance of the recommended riding course is estimated to be approximately 3,170 miles.

The route is planned by the event’s organizers and is preferred, but riders are not required to strictly follow it. Each day’s route has a total of five control checkpoints, including a starting control checkpoint, three interim control checkpoints, and a final finish control checkpoint. The control checkpoints together create a total of four route segments.

Checkpoint and bonus point details, including, latitude/longitude, written and photographic descriptions, and claim requirements are provided to riders upon registration.

Like the 2021 Scooter Cannonball, detailed information about the route, checkpoint and bonus locations, and real time/live rider tracking, will be made available to the public closer to the start of the event for spectators.
