Typically there is also an evening of light merriment before test driving begins, so if you are in the area early and not stuck on the toilet you can count on a bit of socialising.

 

The Parties

We've found the best way to prepare for the chaos and sensory overload of the Rickshaw Run is to party like it's your last. This is a great chance to meet the other teams, wave goodbye to your dignity and to forget all the mental preparation you might have made.

After the Run we like to have another party. Not just to celebrate the folly you've survived but like a ritual cleansing ceremony; one which you emerge from like a smug butterfly, crawling from the empty shell of your former pathetic existence. Or it's just an excuse to drink a load of beer, whichever sounds better.
