just back from Sri Lanka. It was very hot (36 degrees), humid and polluted. The race was rerouted because there is so much redevelopment going on in Sri Lanka (all good) but it was not possible to do the normal route. So this meant that instead of the canal route, we had 26 miles of main road. Absolutely horrible! Won't recommend this one until the old route is back. Can't seem to be able to do a ratings for it - I would give it a thumbs down this year, but have to say that I enjoyed the challenge of it and Sri Lanka is just wonderful.
Just checked JS Insurance and the quote for an 11 day holiday to sri lanka went from £30+ to £90+ when I added marathon running! - Not under the normal policy any more then! Dogtag has marathon running listed as extreme sport and so £81 - it has to get better than that surely!
well - who knows what life will bring next? - have just booked a plane ticket to Colombo and will be running this one this year after all!! - so very happy! - will contact you David direct as no doubt i'll have a few questions
