Alcudia Hosts Ironman Expo & Race from Thursday

Swimming, cycling, and running: one's enough us but for the Ironman athletes - all 2,000+ of them, this sports event is like a walk in the park. This coming Saturday - May 11th - sees the Thomas Cook Ironman 70.3 triathlon taking place in Alcudia.

The event starts with a swimming course located in the harbour. This is followed by a bike race that takes the athletes up and down the mountains of Mallorca in a single looping course. It ends in a thrilling 3 lap run along the beach.

The Ironman Expo, located on the waterfront promenade of Alcudia, offers sports clothing, sports equipment, sports accessories, food, and services, and opens on Thursday, May 9th.

More 'urbanisation' in Camp de Mar

Work has already begun on the construction of 69 new apartments adjacent to the Dorint hotel following the sale of scrub land to developers by the local authority.

To add to the nuisance of  heavy vehicle traffic, construction noise and dust, the popular walking route to Paguera has been fenced off as the council forgot that the path was included in the sale!
