The Rickshaw Challenge invites participants into the heart of India, where you'll traverse every possible micro climate; from metropolis, tropical jungle, arid desert, ancient valleys and epic coastlines… You'll do all this in a three-wheeled vehicle with a two stroke engine: The Auto Rickshaw.

The Classic Run (Chennai to Kanyakumari) will explore the State of Tamil Nadu, venturing along the coast of the Bay of Bengal and dipping into the central part of the southern subcontinent to see the largest temple in India. Come experience a culture, cuisine, and character that cannot be found anywhere else... and do it all from the driver's seat of Asia's beloved autorickshaw! This is your opportunity to escape to a world that has so much to share. This 11-day, 1,000 kilometer adventure will take you over the exotic and deeply cultural Indian countryside and to the most scenic locations in the tropics!

You can register for the Classic Run 2010 which starts on December 29, 2009 and ends on January 8, 2010. Log on to www.rickshawchallenge.com for more details.
