Why experience the IRONMAN 70.3 Alcúdia-Mallorca?
The IRONMAN seal is always the guarantee of an event thought out to the millimeter. It is no coincidence that year after year, hundreds of thousands of triathletes register for one of the many triathlons around the world. But here we are talking about a very epic one: Alcúdia-Majorca. And it is Alcúdia-Mallorca because a large part of the route runs through the municipality of Alcúdia, probably one of the spots on the island with the highest concentration of cyclists per m² during the high season of cycle tourism. That says a lot: experiencing a triathlon in a region where the cycling atmosphere is as good as Majorca is of course a plus.
Another bonus is that the swimming and cycling segments are one lap, with a complete course perfect for those who love speed, talking about the cycling segment. The running segment is a 3-lap course, but the fun of running in Alcúdia Bay will make time fly.

Distances and routes
As we have already mentioned at the beginning, in the 2023 edition there will be no IRONMAN distance, so the only distance in which you can register is the 70.3 modality.
The swimming segment consists of a lap in the waters of the port of Alcúdia, surrounded by a mountain scenery.
The cycling segment is featured by 90 km in which you can pedal at your max speed, with little slope and crossing towns such as Pollença, Caimari, Moscari or Muro, in a single circular lap that is pure frenzy.
The party ends with three laps around the bay of Alcúdia in which you will feel the warmth of the spectators and which will help you give a final push to finish successfully.
Registration fees and how to register?
The price to participate in the IRONMAN 70.3 Alcúdia-Mallorca is from 364 euros, including medical assistance and refreshments during and after the race, jersey, Finisher medal and the runner's bag.
