Race the pearl
A heart racing, ultra endurance cycle race from Dondra, the most southern point of the Island to Point Pedro, the most nothern tip of the island - surely not for the faint hearted, will be back for the second time this year!
Not too long ago, as a means to unite as one to celebrate the 71st Independence Day on the 4th of February, ‘Race the pearl’ hopes to continue to bring communities together, bridging all barriers, and with - it a number of ambitious cyclists to take on the ultimate challenge of racing across the country within 24 hours, covering 600km in distance. The course will take you along scenic beaches, jungle terrain , historical ruins and acres of paddy fields, giving you a glimpse of Sri Lanka’s beauty. Along with it of course; the greatest challenge of all - the willpower to overcome physical limitations - mind over matter! It is surely not a ride in the park, but will leave you breathless (literally)
