The Mahindra Great Escape is held throughout the year. It was first conceptualised in 1996 as a non-competitive off-roading event for Mahindra customers. It was initially meant to test the strength and performance of the vehicles on tough off-road terrains.

However, over the years, the Great Escape has developed into a competition, with the winners of each leg participating for the grand finals. This will be held at Mahindra's Off-roading Academy at Igatpuri and the winner stands a chance to walk away with a brand new Thar, among others.
