Over 3,100 athletes take on the Thomas Cook IRONMAN 70.3 Mallorca

Registration closed with new record number of athletes in Alcudia.
The story of success of the Thomas Cook IRONMAN 70.3 Mallorca in Alcudia has a new chapter: over 3,100 athletes (individual and team) from 54 nations stand for a new registration record. The race on May 11, 2013 on the Balearic island is the kick off for the European IRONMAN season. “It is every event organizer’s dream to open the season with a sold out event. Alcudia has proven to be a perfect host city since the inaugural race in 2011. The athletes appreciate the high quality of the race, the beautiful course around Alcudia and last but not least the incredible hospitality of Mallorca”, says Kai Walter, Chief Operating Officer for Europe, Middle East and Africa of the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC).

Starting with approximately 1,960 participants in 2011 and reaching 2,260 participants in 2012, WTC is proud of the 800 additional registrations for the Thomas Cook IRONMAN 70.3 Mallorca this year. Almost a quarter of the registered athletes (710) are from Great Britain, followed by Germany (479 athletes) and Spain (285).

On the race course in 2012, the race was dominated by the Germans: current IRONMAN 70.3 European Champion Michael Raelert from Rostock did not leave his countryman Michael Göhner (04:10:11) a chance and won in 03:57:08. The Brits struck back in the ladies’ race, Emma-Kate Lidbury being victorious in 04:39:05.
