IRONMAN 70.3 Mallorca returns to Alcudia next May 11, 2019. Considered the biggest IRONMAN 70.3 in the world and one of its most challenging triathlons, the event attracts some of the finest international athletes to the island and also offers 50 qualifying places for the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships 2019 to be held in September in Nice.
Thanks to an unbeatable setting, with the coastline on one side and the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range on the other, a mild climate the whole year round and unbeatable infrastructure, the town of Alcudia in the north of the island of Mallorca has become one of the top European destinations for a wide range of athletes.
As part of its firm commitment to sport, Zafiro Hotels will once again be the official sponsor of the event and the Zafiro Tropic Hotel, around 200 meters from the start line, will be the official event hotel. As always, athletes can get a special discount of 15% off their hotel stay using the IRONMAN19 promotion code or checking out the IRONMAN 70.3 Mallorca special offer on our website. Although there are still a few months to go, we recommend you book your accommodation early to make sure you avoid any nasty surprises and also save yourself some money thanks to your early booking.
A real IRONMAN route
The race will begin on the fantastic beach of Alcudia with a swim through the calm and warm waters of Alcudia Bay.
A rolling start format will begin with a two kilometre swim followed by athletes getting on their bikes and heading out on a route that will take them through the ups and downs in the spectacular Serra de Tramuntana mountains followed by the descent and a tour through the villages in the interior of the island.
Finally, the half marathon will take runners over a flat course alongside the shores of Alcudia beach.
Although the event will be held on Saturday, May 11, the programme for one of the most important sports events of the year includes activities from Thursday to Sunday as well as technical meetings with participants. On Friday, there will be a huge party on the beach with partners, family and friends, and on Sunday the event will end with the awards ceremony and allocation of slots for the World Championships.
