Mallorca Olympic Triathlon

From the website:
The Mallorca Olympic is one of the best races on the sporting destination of Mallorca. Set in the quiet town of Colonia Sant Jordi on the southern tip of the island, the race is a great early season opener that gets you to Mallorca before the summer crowds.

The swim goes along the beautiful beaches of Es Carbo, followed by a short run up the beach to the transition area, setup by the marina. The bike leg is an exhilarating DRAFT LEGAL bike leg on flat terrain through the scenic Mallorca countryside. The run leg loops along the waterfront and around the center, ending in a palm tree lined pedestrian area on the beach front by the harbor. Rewarding finishers is a beach-side paella party.

BEST Centre, or in the cyrstal clear open water off the beaches, ride the rolling terrain and hills of Son Salvador and Randa, and run in the soft woodland trails behind the beaches. Just let us know what you need and we will put it together for you.

    Early in the swim, stay wide of the boats - there are mooring buoy's you might get caught in

    The bike leg is draft legal! Have fun, but be aware of the rules around aero bars.

    During the race briefing, be sure to check if you need ID during bike check-in. This was required when I did it, and caused a lot of confusion.

Event Details

From the website:
One of our favorite events here at Race Everywhere, this event is in a beautiful location and the organizer does a great job. Although it is often attended by elite athletes as an early season opener, the event maintains an intimate, small-race feel, especially when compared with some of the bigger named events on Mallorca. Put this one on your "Must do!" list.
