Mallorca Ultra Trail 2012

The beautiful rugged mountains and valleys of the Sierra Tramuntana region of Mallorca

The beautiful rugged mountains and valleys of the Sierra Tramuntana region of Mallorca provide the stunning backdrop of a gruelling competition this weekend. It's the Ultra Mallorca and Trail
Mallorca running event which tests athletes to the limits over courses of 105 km and 62 km respectively.

Not only are they vast distances to run over stony mountain tracks but an added navigational obstacle arises because the races start in the pitch black of midnight in the Sierra!

The routes are from Andratx to Pollensa passing through picturesque places and villages like Estellencs, Port des Canonge, Valldemossa, Deia, Soller, Cuber and Lluc, with the shorter race starting
at Valldemossa.

The race organisers stipulate that all the athletes have to be equipped with front and back lights, water, blanket, waterproofs, a working
phone and mandatory insurance.

Starting at midnight on Friday 20th April, the runners will arrive in Pollensa – hopefully to a rousing welcome on Saturday afternoon.

The best of luck to them all.
