The all-woman car treasure hunt ‘Heels on Wheels’, organised by The Hindu, on March 3

It’s time for Chennai’s all-woman car treasure hunt. Navin’s presents The Hindu World of Women powered by Gold Winner — a celebration of womanhood. ‘Heels on Wheels’, in its fifth edition, is a unique task-based car race for Chennai women and will be held on March 3, 8 a.m., at Citi Centre. Aimed at testing one’s driving skills, participants have to decipher a set of clues, as they navigate their way around the city to find hidden treasure.

Participants will have to perform five tasks en route. But they don’t move forward until they’ve deciphered all the clues. The race will culminate with a grand finale at Citi Centre. Participants can enjoy a carnival as they wait for a team picture beside a rally car setup.

With registrations open only to women, teams with 2-4 members are mandatory. The first 100 teams to register will be eligible to take part in the race. Registration may be done online at or call 95664-00800.

What’s more, women can avail themselves of exclusive deals worth up to Rs.1,20,000 all through the Women’s Day week! To avail the special offer, call 044-24371111.

The event is powered by Gold Winner and associate sponsors include Arokya, Chennai Diamonds and Hindustan University.
