Opihr Gin Competition Winners Set Off On Rickshaw Run Across India
The winners of an Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin competition have embarked on the adventure of a lifetime, racing painted tuk tuks across India on the infamous wild and adventurous Rickshaw Run organised by The Adventurists.
Ollie and Sarah, and their hand-painted #GindianDream Tuk Tuk, have began a 3,500 km trip across the rugged landscape of northern India, racing with 80 other teams raising money for charity.
It is an arduous journey and there has never been a single run where every team has finished. Only around 90% of those competing in the race actually cross the finish line two weeks later. They have left from Jaisalmer in the west, bound for Shillong in the far east – the route inbetween is a completely unknown and these two and their rickshaw will have to pass through mountainous terrain, cross rivers, traverse plains, and survive whatever else Mother Nature and the impressive yet unpredictable India throws in their way.
They won their prize in an Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin on-pack competition, run through off-trade retailers in the UK. Kate Harrison, International Brand Manager Premium Gins at Quintessential Brands, says: “We are very excited that the winners of our amazingly successful promotion have started their Rickshaw Run and look forward to introducing Opihr Gin to a whole new group of adventurers across the world.”
