Homecoming: Mini 500 Race
Georgia Tech's Mini 500 race is a tradition that has been an essential part of homecoming events since 1969.
Sponsored by the Ramblin' Reck Club, this race derived from a prank fraternities used in the 1960s in which pledges were forced to transport themselves around campus on tricycles. Today, the Mini 500 race is far from being considered a punishment. It is an exciting, intense tricycle competition full of humor and fun.
