Just got this from Andrew Yunge Gordon

Bad news from here in Germany. Mittelrhein Marathon will not take place in 2016.
Falling participant numbers is given as the reason for ending that lovely fast marathon.
Please pass on the information to the regular attendees from London.
Best wishes
Andrew

Shame but I'm not surprised.

They could have expanded particiaption by taking credit cards or PayPal so internationals could register easily in advance but no. German bank accounts only. Combine that with a U-turn route which was kept despite the road works being finished 2 years ago. I've done that bit on the Rhine on Skates both years. It's just not the epic race it used to be. At least RoS takes paymnets via PayPal and you can get to skate 95% of the route of the original course plus a whole lot more for less money. Come on that instead.
