Triathlon: 10 reasons to take part at Long Course Weekend Mallorca

Long Course Weekend Mallorca - Saturday 27th - Monday 29th, October 2018

There are many reasons to take part on this unique event, but we want to highlight the 10 main reasons so that no triathlete, swimmer, cyclist or runner miss the opportunity to be part of this unique sport event that lasts 3 days with 3 different sports in a unique place: Alcúdia.

1st. A paradise in Mallorca: Alcúdia has all the conditions and equipment to be the perfect place for the development of any sport. Located at the north part of the island of Mallorca, known worldwide and considered a "paradise" for athletes from all around the world.

2nd. Priveleged climate: Only a few places in the world are able to host an event as this in October, because it could be too hot or too cold as in the major part of Europe but here we are able to as the mid temperature in October is 19C. The perfect conditions to practice any sport.

3rd. Much more than a triathlon in 3 days. The fact of having each sport on a different day allows each one to choose the day (or days) in which wants to participate and the different distances. So, whether it's your first time competing or you're a regular in any of the sports, in Long Course Weekend you can choose the best option for you.

5th. Swim in turquoise water: Swimming takes place in the quiet Bay of Alcúdia. With an average water temperature of 20ºC and a depth of between 2 and 6 meters, you will feel like swimming in a natural pool.

6th. An iconic Sportive : The Bike day course is with roads completely closed to the traffic and with drafting allowed. Mallorca is a paradise for cyclists from all over the world, and on the Bike Day you will discover the reasons to fall in love with our landscape and roads.

7th. Run feeling the sea and with a finish line right on the beach: The Run day offers the option to participate from a 5k to a Marathon distance. The course is completely flat, and runs along the promenade, next to the sea, and surrounded by palm trees.

8th. Run with your loved ones! You can share with your family, children, friends ... your arrival at the finish line! Before reaching the finish arch they can join to cross the last meters together.

9th. For the whole family! The youngest athletes also have their race during the weekend.
