International expansion: Long Course Weekend launches in Mallorca

Mallorca, Spain

Only two weeks after announcing the launch of Long Course Weekend in Jervis Bay, Australia; the Long Course Weekend team have confirmed another European event in Alcudia, Mallorca – taking place on 3-5 November 2017.

The Long Course Weekend originated in Wales and, in only six years, the organisers add that it is now 4x the size of the IRONMAN event held in the local area of Pembrokeshire.

The Long Course Weekend is a 3 day sporting festival where athletes swim on Friday, cycle on Saturday and run on Sunday. There are a multitude of race distances and a special fourth medal for those that enter the Full Long Course Weekend and do the Long distance every day.

Matthew Evans of Long Course Weekend said “We are delighted to have been able to come here to Mallorca and secure this slot in the race calendar. Long Course Weekend is very much an experience and allows a range of people to get involved in the weekend. We will be working very closely with the local community to ensure the Mallorca experience is unparalleled.

“Our race partner in Mallorca is Kumulus whom have delivered world class events for many years now on the island including The Palma Marathon.”

David Thompson of Kumulus said “We are delighted to be bringing this race to Mallorca next November. The concept is so inclusive and we think we certainly have a game changer on our hands here in Alcudia. The stage is magnificent, the accommodation and travel is great value in November and many athletes from all over the world will be coming here for some winter sun

Entries are scheduled to open in early January and are expected to fill quickly.
