A decision that has been made after analyze all the circumstances and see the impossibility of being able to carry out this important event maintaining the quality standards that have been offered so far.

 CHALLENGE-PEGUERA MALLORCA was chosen in 2019 as the best race in the world on the CHALLENGE-FAMILY circuit.

In addition to the destination, two of the outstanding reasons for this choice were: the complete offer of services for athletes and family members, and a large program of parallel activities for all those who come to the destination.

Although, at the moment, thanks to the effort that is being carried out by the entire society, we are managing to slow down its progress, we are doing so by implementing the necessary measures and restrictions, some of them related to the organization of mass events, etc. .

From the organization of CHALLENGE-PEGUERA MALLORCA it is understood that in the current context it is not advisable to go ahead with the event in 2020.

The current restrictions imply the approach of a totally different format from the one offered, and an event with circuit restrictions, without public, no parallel activitiesWithout great assemblies, without ceremonies, it would become a very different product from the one athletes have bought.

 It is a difficult decision, But also the most responsible and sincere with the participating people, since what is pursued is that Mallorca remains a safe destination, and at the moment, the massive tests increase the risk of concentration of publics and therefore of contagion.

 However, since Ajuntament de Calvià and the Fundación Calvià It is recalled that Peguera, in particular, and the entire municipality, in general, continues being a very appropriate and safe setting to continue conducting training camps, as well as top-level sports activities.
