THE ADVENTURE BEGINS!
The big moment has arrived. It’s 19th of October and you, along with the other athletes who participate in the sixth edition of Challenge Peguera-Mallorca are waiting for the race to start on the wet sand of the Tora beach. Your adrenaline is sky high, you try to isolate yourself from the noise of the motivational music and the public’s roaring encouragement, trying to focus on your challenge, overcome the 1.9 km swimming, 90 km on bike and 21 km running to become one of the Challenge Peguera-Mallorca 2019 FINISHERS. You have a maximum of 4 hours left to reach the finish line, crossing through the most beautiful areas of Calvià, its coastline and its mountains. The goal is to reach the Peguera Boulevard with enough energy so the public and volunteers can thank you for your effort.
Volunteers, police, civil defense, medics, and organization providers are also ready and nervous, hoping everything goes as we planned and that you, friends and family can enjoy a great event. Good luck friend and see you at the finish line.
