The philosophy of this event has always been to return to the origins of this sport, taking maximum care of all the details of a long distance competition, and to pamper the triathletes themselves.
The safety and health of the participants is most important
The uncertainty that is generated in terms of safety and health measures due to the Coronavirus, problems of displacement and closure of hotels, both in the previous preparation and in the coming months, and the impossibility of training properly for such a demanding challenge, motivate the postponement of the inaugural edition to 2021.
«The safety and health of each and every one of our participants and of the people who come to watch the competition are our main concerns.
The logical, honest and responsible thing for us is to provide all the facilities so that the triathletes can present their sports calendar 2020 and 2021 in the best possible way.«, Indicates the director of the test, David Thompson.
Registration will be transferred to 2021 or 100% of the registration will be returned
For all these reasons, the Mallorca140.6 organization will transfer your registration to the 2021 edition or the possibility of requesting a 100% refund of the registration.
We want to send a message of affection, strength and encouragement to our entire community of triathletes and their families for this time that we have left of confinement. We hope to see you soon training and thinking about the next sports goals.
