On October the 18th 2014 we will be celebrating the 1st edition of the HALF CHALLENGE PAGUERA and we will be doing so by harbouring nothing less than the ETU´s HALF DISTANCE EUROPEAN TRIATHLON CHAMPIONSHIP.
WHAT DIFFERENTIATES THE PAGUERA CHALLENGE?
The four characteristics that define the Paguera Challenge are:
1.-The environment: competing in paradise, Mallorca is just that. More specifically, Paguera, surrounded by the most beautiful coves and beaches, and at the foot of the Tramuntana Sierra (one of UNESCO´s Heritages to Humanity).
Paguera offers the perfect mediterranean climate, with more that 300 sunshine filled days with ideal temperatures to train and compete all year round.
Competitors will not only enjoy the day of the race, their stay will be magical.
2.- The infrastructures: at this point we have:
Prime quality hotels: varied offers, specializing in sporting tourism, specially adapted with the capacity and experience to manage large events.
Gastronomical Offers: of great quality, that combine the traditional and excellent mediterranean foods with the best international proposals.
Complementary Offers: the Boulevard that stretches across Paguera offers all that our visitors may need; shopping, various leisure activities and countless services etc.
Entertainment Centers: Paguera and Calvià are equipped with all the necessities that triathletes may need to practice their different disciplines with all the guarantees. Athletics track, swimming pools, gymnasiums and countless outdoor routes.
During 2014 Paguera will be inaugurating the TVP (Triathlon Village Paguera), exclusively designed to train this discipline in the most prime conditions.
3.- The Circuits and the Organization
The CHALLENGE PAGUERA is not only distinguished by its beauty but also its speed, variation and control.
The cycling segment departs from Paguera and continues through to Capdella, a beautiful traditional town. The descent through Son Pillo takes competitors through the tourist areas of Palmanova, Magalluf, El Toro, Santa Ponca and back to Paguera, following the coast line.
Two laps of this circuit complete the cycling segment, it is fast, with a low inclination percentage and a maximum hight of 151 m.
Last but not least, the running segment of the triathlon elapses entirely through the neuralgic center of Paguera. Four laps which alternate between the concurred boulevard and the maritime broadwalk that join the Tora, Els Morts and La Romana Beaches, some of the most impressive coastal views in Mallorca. The finish line will be situated at the plaza which joins the beach with the boulevard, the heart of Paguera.

Thus ensuring a maximum level of enjoyment during the sporting activity of the athletes, with an emphasis on security and control, and taking advantage of the unique environment that surrounds us all.
