The race takes place from Jun 12th over 4 days and 300km, encountering humid jungles in the south of the country before venturing into mountainous tea plantations and across the Horton Plains (who?), the island’s highest plateau. It then finishes in the ‘cultural capital’ of Sri Lanka, the magnificently named Kandy.

It’s a single category event for 2016, with prizes in excess of $10,000 – which certainly isn’t to be sniffed at. The whole shebang comes complete with 3*+ hotel accommodation, 3 meals per day and full race support, nutrition by Torq, mechanics and masseurs. Cor. And there are still a few places available! It costs $1,895, and entries will close on April 30th, unless it sells out before then. You can enter and get more details here.

  1. It is Sri Lankan Airlines not Sri Lanka and I bet they’d like a correct name check if they are sponsoring the event.
