The Rickshaw Run

Three wheels of disaster rolling across the globe

The Rickshaw Run

Take a 7 horsepower cake tin on wheels, stick you and two mates in it and wave goodbye with an epic party to see you on your 2000km trip of a lifetime.

This is The Rickshaw Run. 

With no set route, no back-up, and no way of knowing if you’re going to make it, we let you loose in one of the greatest vehicles ever created. The only certainty of The Rickshaw Run is that you will get lost, you will get stuck, you will break down and you will help save a bit of the world.

We wrap each event up with a party of earth-shattering proportions but what is between them is all down to you. And luck – good or bad.

India

This is where it all began, the original Rickshaw Run. It’s the largest of its type on the planet and will test you to your limit.

The Rickshaw Run India

The Rickshaw Run has been putting the willies up grandmothers across the globe since 2006. Not literally of course, that would be disgusting.

There are three editions of The Rickshaw Run India every year, with around 85 teams taking part in each one.

It runs between Kochi in the very south and Jaisalmer in the middle of the Thar desert up in the northwest corner.

In between is the most chaotic two weeks you’re ever likely to experience. Unless you’ve spent a fortnight in a tumble drier with Jeremy Clarkson and a basket of angry cats. Then it’ll probably be the second most chaotic.

Sri Lanka

The newest Rickshaw Run and a good place to start if you’ve not rickshawed before. Slightly easier terrain, but plenty of adventure.

The Rickshaw Run Sri Lanka

Sri Lankan roads are slightly more forgiving than they are in India. We were worried it’d be a walk in the park, we were wrong.

A different beast altogether compared with India, Sri Lanka offers a unique adventuring experience that’s perfect if this your first go on a rickshaw.

There’s a lot of tarmac there to be had if you want, but thousands of kilometres of off-road tracks scattered around the place to make sure you can get totally and utterly lost. You can pick and choose; comfort or chaos.

Awesome food, wildlife aplenty, eerily friendly locals and more beaches, tea plantations and jungle than you could ever dream of, this is a veritable week of juddery bliss.

Himalaya

The gnarlier, more deranged sibling of the Rickshaw Run. Only for those with the right adventure credentials. This is hardcore.

The Rickshaw Run Himalaya

We’d been running the Rickshaw Run for 10 years when we decided to make it even more stupid.

We pondered as to how we could turn things up to 11. We decided that nothing less than the highest mountain range on the planet would do. So that’s what we did.

This is the Rickshaw Run Himalaya, an epic hardcore adventure for the well-seasoned adventurer. If you’re hesitant, even a little bit, this one isn’t for you.

With only two editions a year, one in June and one in September, space is limited and spots go quickly. Expect sheer cliff drops, landslides, headaches, adrenaline overload and a grin across your face wider than a sumo wrestler’s corset.

Still up for it? You know what to do.
