The Going to the Sun Rally was founded in 2005 by Farnum Alston when he organized a 40 member vintage car rally and coordinated the first five-day journey across Montana. The rally is well attended by US and European drivers as they travel through Montana and its neighboring states with drivers sometimes finding themselves in Canada! The Going to the Sun Rally is celebrating its tenth year by continuing to provide a fun and picturesque rally experience while raising money for organizations in its beloved state.
Each year a new route covers 1,000 miles of beautiful desert terrain, verdant river valley and alpine landscape throughout the state of Arizona and beyond. Rally-goers have a deep sense of comradery and each year the community seems to expand and strengthen. The memories and friendships made are a large part of Copperstate’s repeat rally devotees, equally appealing is the significant charitable benefits the rally supports.
