What is the Rickshaw Run?
Derek & Ryan (from United States) along with Rutavi, are part of a 2-week long 3,000 km race in a rickshaw! They will be going from Jaisalmer to Shillong on the 6th till the 18th of April across the worst traffic and terrain that India can throw at them! They are all professional travel bloggers with a large following online and reputations of inspiring others to follow in their footsteps. Rutavi, in particular, is already well known in India for her work in and with the travel/tourism industry.
The Rickshaw Run is organised by The Adventurists, who also organize the Mongol Rally. In 2013, 74 teams started in the 2013 spring run in Kochi, in the south western corner of the country. The teams that went the central route travelled more than 4000km in their rickshaws on some of the worst roads in India. Along with them, more than 50 plus international teams would be a part of this race.
