It's that time of year again, when the Auto-x has quieted down, the Road Race Courses are closed, the Car Meets are finished for the year, and you are stuck at home with your Subie just itching to get out there and see other Subaru enthusiasts. Well luckily for you for the past 10 winters we have been holding The 48hrs of Tristate. This event has grown from a group of 5 cars raising about $1000 for World Trade Center Attack Victims in 2002 to our highest ever last year in 2010 where we had 60 cars registered and raised over $35,000 for The American Cancer Society.
The trip takes place over 4 days this year because we are being hosted at both the Subaru of American Corporate Headquarters in Cherry Hill, NJ as well as a private tour of the Subaru of Indiana plant in Lafayette, IN. You will make new friends and bond with old ones as we go on an adventure across 5 states and over 1,500 miles together.
There is no "fee" other than the required Driver donation to The American Cancer Society (a tax writeoff too). We usually secure over $10,000 in door prizes from Subaru-oriented Vendors which we raffle off to registered participants (be they drivers, passengers, or folks who donate to ACS through our site who can't make the trip).
The route this year starts in Cherry Hill, NJ and ends in Harriman, NY.
