Some things take a little time, and five years after the last event in 2016, Puerto de Alcudia will be hosting an IRONMAN® long-distance triathlon - IRONMAN Mallorca next May 15, 2021.
The official hotels for the triathlon event are the 5-star Zafiro Palace Alcudia and the 4-star Zafiro Tropic, both offering athletes and their families the best accommodation on the island for the days leading up to and after the event. And what's more, you can now book the hotels with an extra discount of up to 15% if you use the FULLIRONMAN code on our website. Need more reasons to convince yourself to spend a few unrepeatable days on the island?
Mallorca, IRONMAN destination
The event will take place one week after Zafiro IRONMAN 70.3 Alcudia-Mallorca, scheduled for May 8, 2021. The race will bring the total number of IRONMAN events held in Europe to 18, and will be the first race of the season on the IRONMAN long-distance race circuit in Europe.
"Mallorca has become an excellent host for sports events such as the IRONMAN races. We are thrilled to have been chosen again as one of the few places in the world prepared to host an IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3”, stated Andreu Serra, Minister of Tourism and Sports in the Mallorcan local government.
"We have always had a very special feeling about Mallorca ever since we presented the first IRONMAN 70.3 Alcudia-Mallorca event almost ten years ago” says Stefan Petschnig, CEO of IRONMAN Europe, Middle East and Africa. "The event will give athletes an excellent chance to compete at the start of the season in what is arguably one of the best IRONMAN locations in the world”.
Full distance: 226km triathlon
IRONMAN Mallorca will start with a 3.8 km swim in the stunning Alcudia Bay. The athletes will then set out on a spectacular 180 km bike ride that will take them from Port de Pollença through the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains, and from there to the east of the island before returning to T2 in Puerto de Alcudia. This is a very tough ride, but absolutely unforgettable thanks to its beautiful scenery.
A 42.2 km four-lap run will take the athletes around Alcudia Bay before reaching the finishing line on the beach and hearing the long-awaited “You are an IRONMAN”.
