Hit the Road with the 4th Annual Catskill Conquest Rally!

In 1903, the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers sponsored an 800-mile endurance run from Weehawken, NJ to Pittsburgh, PA. Thirty-four competing automobiles departed on October 7, 1903 and traveled up the Hudson Valley and then through the Catskill Mountains. Reaching Delhi on the second day in a driving rain, they continued on through Franklin and then to Binghamton and beyond.

Since 2017, drivers have been commemorating this historic event with a tradition of their own, Annual Catskill Conquest Rally!

This year’s event takes place on Saturday, September 26th, and starts at the Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center in Mt Tremper, NY from 9am-10am, and ends at the Unadilla House in Unadilla.
