After five editions organising IRONMAN 70.3 Mallorca and three with IRONMAN Mallorca, Spanish event organising company Kumulus Active World has announced that from this date it will no longer be involved in the organization of IRONMAN events on the Spanish Balearic island.
From now on, the IRONMAN Spain team in Barcelona will be responsible for M-Dot event organization and development in Mallorca.
A popular destination for travelling endurance sport enthusiasts, Mallorca is one of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean, and has build a reputation for swim/bike/run training camps through to a diverse range of endurance sport events.
As one of the world’s largest IRONMAN branded events, IRONMAN 70.3 Mallorca is popular among Spanish athletes and a number of travelling athletes from northern Europe and beyond. At the end of 2016, it was confirmed that the full distance (Thomas Cook sponsored) IRONMAN Mallorca was discontinued for 2017. There are currently six M-Dot branded events in Spain:
- IRONMAN 70.3 Lanzarote
- IRONMAN Barcelona
- Iron Girl Barcelona
- IRONMAN 70.3 Marbella
- IRONMAN 70.3 Mallorca
- IRONMAN Lanzarote
A release from Kumulus stated that ‘Kumulus thanks IRONMAN for its trust and confidence in its work during these years and wishes the best for the future event editions. Furthermore, it wants to thank the support of the public institutions, organizations and companies involved in these events and especially to more than 15,000 athletes, in those five years leading these two international triathlons of great prestige, from its first editions until the one celebrated in 2017.’
Kumulus is a 100% Balearic company and will continue to work in the organization of international sports events in Mallorca. The company is behind the Palma de Mallorca Marathon and Triathlon de Portocolom in Mallorca, and it also recently signed a deal to organise the Long Course Weekend in Mallorca.
