When and where: the best sporting events
Sport is a part of who we are. We live and breathe it every day, which is why we know all the best sporting events on the island. If there’s one thing we can promise you about Mallorca, it’s that there’s always something sporty going on. Whether that’s a trail running event, a tennis competition, a cycling race, a triathlon, a golf tournament, or any athletic activity you can think of for that matter. Below, we’ve listed some of the biggest and most popular events for you. Read on!
Mallorca 312 bike race
There are some sporting events that are so incredibly challenging and uniquely spectacular that they’ve become veritable legends. The Mallorca 312 bike race is one of those. A must in every amateur cyclist’s calendar, it’s an event that is one of a kind, not least because of the huge number of participants who flock to the island to compete in it.
Starting in Playa de Muro, there are three courses to choose from which each vary in distance: 167km, 225km and 312km. All three routes pass through the beautiful Tramuntana mountain range, where your legs will have to work overtime to push you up the unforgiving climbs. But the pain will be worth it when you look around you and realize how breathtaking the scenery is. Add to that the sense of comradery and you’ll just glide up the hills. Attention, the event sells out within days, if not hours, so if you want to participate sign up as soon as registration opens. Entries for 2023 are already closed.

Where: Playa de Muro
Triathlon is Mallorca. Mallorca is triathlon. And no triathlon is more fun, more enjoyable and more beautiful than the Zafiro Ironman 70.3 Alcúdia-Mallorca. Known as the biggest middle-distance triathlon in Europe, it’s a course that pays tribute to personal grit and the beauty of the Mediterranean.
The swim takes place in the beautiful bay of Alcúdia, the bike route snakes up the Tramuntana mountains and the run goes along the Promenade, where thousands of people are waiting to cheer you on. What we love most about this race (speaking from experience) is the electrifying atmosphere. It’s truly incomparable!

Mallorca Championships ATP
There’s a reason why tennis is one of the most popular sports in the world. And Mallorca is quickly gaining a reputation as a hub for tennis pros to come and battle it out for the title.
Famous winners in the past include Stefanos Tsitsipas, while the 2023 line up is rumoured to include Grand Slam finalist Nick Kyrigos. Make sure you book your tickets early so you don’t miss out! We can’t wait to see what tennis magic will be performed here.
