Race Description

Raksha is PROMISE TO PROTECT

A bond between drivers on the road; promising to drive distraction-free in order to protect each other and the community.

Raksha Bandhan is an Indian festival that commemorates a centuries old tradition in which a sister ties a ceremonial band on her brother’s wrist and prays for his protection and safety. The brother reciprocates with a pledge to be there for her whenever she needs him. A simple band therefore binds brothers and sisters in an inseparable bond.

Much like this bond between brother and sister, let us commit to a bond of protection with other drivers who share the road with us.

Let us celebrate Distraction-Free Driving.
