Distances and routes

The smartest will surely have guessed that the name of the race corresponds to its distance. Yes: Mallorca 312, 312 km. It's the powerful distance that will ache your legs for at least a week, unless your name is Wout and your surname is Van Aert. Five thousand and several meters, so we leave the challenge to you and then you can decide what to do....

Fortunately, there are two other distances, but neither of them can be considered easy: 225 and 167 km respectively. And if we look at the positive slope of these two distances, we see that they are really far from easy: 3,500 m and 2,300 m vertical drop. Giving a good idea of how demanding they are.

The best part is that the organizers let you choose the distance until race day. This means that if you were really excited when you registered, but on race day your legs are shaking a bit, it's fine if instead of 312 km you choose a few kilometers less.

Training to consider for the long distance

Although Mallorca 312 is not characterized by dizzying climbs, 312 km can be extremely long if you don't have the right training. Keep in mind that the first 150 kilometers are pure mountain adventure, with countless climbs, turns, ascents and descents that can take your breath away. As a recommendation, in addition to working long distances, you should learn to manage your fatigue well, keeping in mind that the circuit is much more demanding in the first section.

Top climbs

Coll de Femenía

The daredevil who chooses the long distance will challenge up to 10 different climbs. Climbs like Coll den Bleda, Coll des Pi or Es Capdellà, which are certainly easier, others like Coll de Femenía, Coll d'en Claret and especially Puig Major are much more difficult.

Please note that the Mallorca 312 route has a first section clearly marked by climbs, the Serra de Tramuntana as its epicenter, and a practically flat second section. All climbs are in this first sector.
