ICAN Triathlon

Ican Triathlon

A friend sent me details of the Ican Triathlon in Mallorca today. The first ever event was held a few weeks ago and was apparently a great success. Now I am considering entering next year’s event that will be held on Saturday, September 17.

Yes, always one to relish a challenge I checked out the site.
and see that they also have a half triathlon with a 1.9 km swim, 90 km bike and 21 km race. This looks fearsome enough but compared to the full ICAN at 3.8 km swim, 180 km bike and 42 km race I guess it is a stroll in the park.

Anyway, it’s some time to go so watch this space! What I do know is that the event is taking place on the beautiful island of Mallorca which is one of my favourite places on earth. So, if nothing else, I see myself going to visit the event. I have friends who have a superb hotel on the island and they immediately set about putting together a spectator/competitor offer. See Sant Blai for more details of their unique venue and if I’m there at the same time I’d love to share un cortado or agua con gas with you. Actually, come to think of it, there is never a bad time to go to Mallorca. Perhaps I should go next week….I could make myself an excuse that I’m checking out the three courses. No, one never needs an excuse to go to Mallorca and definitely not to Sant Blai.
