The Classic Run Rickshaw Challenge begins on 28th December in Chennai, the capital of Tamil Nadu. Soon, teams will be exploring the best that the state has to offer, on their journey to the southern tip of India. Incredible nature and fascinating history awaits the teams, not to mention the vibrant culture, delicious cuisine, and generous hospitality of the local people. Here are just some of the things we love about Tamil Nadu.
