Name Classic Run
The Rickshaw challenge CLASSIC RUN will follow a route through Tamil Nadu in South-eastern India. With your intrepid team of challengers, you will pilot a 7-stage course that will take you on journey of almost 1,000 kilometres (roughly 590 miles). Your autorickshaw will traverse a wide multitude of roads and changing weather through the exotic Indian countryside.
The Rickshaw Challenge is a perfect match for individuals wanting to participate in their vacation rather than simply witness it. Starting in 2006, the Rickshaw Challenge stood out as the first response to the rising trend of adventure tourism in South India. Most ideas of travel in India for Westerners centered around Taj Mahal tours and the Himalayas. While those are also dynamic destinations, few Westerns realize just how incredible and vastly unique South India is, especially when viewed from the driver’s seat of an autorickshaw.
