Triathlon is synonymous with toughness and sacrifice, with a very demanding and comprehensive discipline. It consists in swimming 1,500 metres, cycling 40 kilometres and running 10 kilometres. If the mere description already sounds hard, imagine actually doing it, and, harder still, finishing with good times and scores. It’s quite the challenge!
Challenge. This is where the major success of this sport lies, with increasing numbers of competitors, many of whom become faithful devotees. In its essence, it’s about putting yourself to the test with basic sporting activities, like swimming, cycling and running. It’s about demonstrating that you can reach heights that you never suspected. Everything is a question of mental and physical preparation. Everything is possible with passion.
In Majorca, the triathlon comes with an added plus
Well, realistically, many pluses. Competing in a triathlon in Majorca is the pinnacle. Clearly, the toughness of this sport is the same wherever you do it, but the mild climate of the island, its landscape, its terrain and its beaches are major pluses.
Although perhaps the best part comes after the training and the competition: magnificent cuisine, relaxing in enchanting hotels and with all the infrastructure needed to practice this sport alongside a top-quality offering of leisure and culture.
Majorca gives wings to the triathlon, and competitors feel like royalty on the island: special and fully satisfied.
