The 2nd edition of the GlobalLimits' Wild Elephant Trail in Sri Lanka, a 6-day stage race over 220km was won by European runners. Great Britain's Nathan Montague was fastest in the men's, despite a late surge in the second part of the week by Spain's Xavi Marina. Another Spaniard, David Mora, completed the podium in third place.
Christina Khinast from Austria was clearly the fastest woman in Sri Lanka. The battle for second was more tight, as Cambodia's Sophiethida Kong and Maria Rotger were quite evenly matched, although the Asian runner mainly had the edge.
All finishers of the stage race score will enter this week's Asia Trail Master ranking with 100 finisher points and each with his or her own's performance points based on the result. The next GlobalLimits boutique stage race is the Last Secret in Bhutan, starting at the end of May. It is still possible to register for that event.
