If you still have any queries concerning the Mallorca Triathlon, please read the FAQs below.
If you do not find the answer you are looking for, then please contact us and we will be happy to assist you.
Can I book the hotels directly through you?
All hotel rooms will be booked directly with the hotels. When you make your booking, please inform the hotel that you are booking for the Colonia Sant Jordi Triathlon, and you will receive the special rates negotiated with the hotels.
I have signed up for the event, what happens now?
You will receive an email from us that confirms your registration and entry into the event. If you need to book a hotel, you can do so on the hotel pages. Now train hard! In the last week in March, we will send you an email that goes through the check-in procedures and explains exactly where you need to be and when.
Can I bring friends and family?
Yes you can, and all friends and family will be made very welcome. The town is a wonderful place to spend a few days and with a Saturday morning race, everyone will enjoy the weekend away.
How far is Colonia Sant Jordi from Palma airport?
We are 30 minutes from Palma airport. There are plenty of taxis outside the arrivals hall or book ahead and we will organise a pick up for you. See more in our Getting Here section under Location on the main menu bar.
How secure are the boxes?
We take security seriously and will make sure that the volunteers keep the transition area close and secure until all the bikes are out.
What will be in my goodybag?
We have a fantastic goody bag for you. Pot of Flor de Sel salt as a great memory of your time around Ses Salines, Mallorca Olympic T shirt, gels, swimcap and discount vouchers are all in the bag.
Are wetsuits required?
Wetsuits are not required unless the water is particularly cold, but we strongly recommend them. Everyone in the race will be wearing one.
Is drafting permitted?
Yes. This is a drafting race so no TT bikes are allowed. Tri bars cannot extend past the front brakes and have to form a CLOSED loop in front, no disc wheels and wheels need a minumum of 12 spokes.
What level of Triathlete is this race suited to?
We are a friendly race in a very picturesque part of the world. The course is fast and flat which makes it ideal for beginners as well as the pros. Whether you are racing for the money or are a first time entry to the Olympic distance, you will enjoy this race.
Can I stay in the area for a few days after the race to train?
Colonia Sant Jordi is the perfect place for Tri training. You can swim in the outdoor Olympic pool at the BEST Centre, or in the cyrstal clear open water off the beaches, ride the rolling terrain and hills of Son Salvador and Randa, and run in the soft woodland trails behind the beaches. Just let us know what you need and we will put it together for you.
Is the race really founded by Olympians?
Yes it is. Matthew and James, who set up the BEST Centre in 2009 are the organisers of this event. They are in good company, as Spanish Olympic cyclist Joan C. Tomas has his bike hire shop just around the corner from the pool. www.teamdoublej.com.
The town is turning into a mini Olympic village!
