Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Colombo running route, or want to share your favorite Colombo running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
The best place I found was down Castle Lane (behind Bambalapitiya Flats, Colombo) along the beach. Attempting to run anywhere on the streets is very dangerous and the sidewalks are usually too crowded to be comfortable for runners (or walkers). The beaches are particularly beautiful at sunset. But, a cool, early morning run is just as nice. In the up-country, in Kandy, running around the lake is particularly nice, again if you avoid traffic.
