Multisport: Triathlon Portocolom International kicking off its 20th edition

Registrations Open Now
One Of The Earliest Triathlon Races In Europe (April 9th, 2017)
Available Under The Two Formats 55.5 & 111
Considered To Be The Best Triathlon On The Balearics Islands

8 SEP 2016, Portocolom, Mallorca, Spain: Time is ticking. The official kick-off of the European triathlon season starts on Mallorca with a new edition of the Triathlon Portocolom International. With its date set on Sunday April 9th 2017, it is again one of the earliest triathlon races of the European season.

20 years after its first edition, this international triathlon continues with its athletic highlights as every year: starting with the impressive swim in the bay of Portocolom, followed by the challenging bike course with its double climb uphill to Sant Salvador and finishing with the picturesque running course across the historical town centre towards Portocolom´s emblematic lighthouse.

The upcoming race edition is also its 20th anniversary; therefore some new features are currently under preparation, soon to be announced. Again there will be monetary prizes of 4,000 Euro for the winners, the first 3 classified (male and female) in format 55.5 and in format 111. Again in 2017 many international professional triathletes will kick off their triathlon season in Portocolom, in both categories male and female.

The attractive and innovative formats 55.5 (500 m swim, 50 km bike, 5 km run) and 111 (1 km swim, 100 km bike and 10 km run) will again gather over one thousand triathletes, and continues with important improvements such as the increase of the number of registration slots and a renewed transition area. The outstanding organization and service makes the race to be voted as the best triathlon from the Balearic Islands every year. Again, the popular duathlon for children, TriKids, will take place on April 8th, which is the Saturday before the race day.

Early bird rates for registration are available until 31 December 2016. Members of the Triathlon Federation of the Balearic Islands will have member rates.

The Triathlon Portocolom International is organized by the sports events agency Kumulus and the Club Triatló Portocolom; and supported by the local council of Felanitx, the Ayuntamiento de Felanitx.
