LONG COURSE WEEKEND MALLORCA (Alcudia)
SATURDAY 27 – MONDAY 29, OCTOBER 2018
There are less than two months left for the second edition of the Long Course Weekend Mallorca, which will be held in Alcudia on Saturday 27, Sunday 28 and Monday 29 October, and the number of entries compared to the first edition have already increased, with almost 1,000 athletes who will participate in some of the three days, or in the three consecutive days.
The expected numbers are double last year´s participation , with almost 500 British, nearly 200 Spanish and more than 100 Germans. A highlight is the high percentage of women taken part, who already represent 45% of the total number of registered participants, stands out in a significant way, a percentage much higher than normal long distance events in Spain.
LCW distance last year’s winners, the British Lucy Gossage and Tom Vickery, have confirmed their presence at the starting line.
The Long Course Weekend Mallorca is a 3 days sporting festival with different sports and multitude of distances to choose. To obtain the precious Long Course Weekend medal – one of four interlocking medals, the remaining three having been earned by completing the Long Course Weekend distance (3.800 meters Swim, 172Km Bike, 42,195Km Run), like an Ironman triathlon but in 3 different days.
If an athlete wants to be a part of the weekend but doesn’t want to do the longer distances, can enter other combinations.
The “Swim Day” will take place on Saturday 27th and participants can choose between those different options: 750, 1.500, 1.900 or 3.800 m all of them taking place at the calm and turquoise bay of Alcúdia.
On Sunday 28th takes place the “Bike Day”, with 2 distances to choose: 172 km or 86 km, with drafting allowed and totally closed roads. A fantastic way to see and experience for yourself the stunning coastal views and rolling countryside of the island.
