Mallorca 312: Book Before 31 October for 40% Discount

by Nick Gregory

Registration for the 5th edition of the Mallorca312-Iberostar Playa de Muro Sportive officially begins on 1 November. However, until 31 October, you can take advantage of the early booking offer, saving up to 40% on your registration fee and room booking at the Iberostar Playa de Muro. 


Arguably the longest one-day sportive in Europe, the Mallorca 312 has welcomed the likes of former World Road Race Champion Oscar Freire, and 'King of the Classics' Sean Kelly to the island in the past. 

The event is now in its fifth year, and grows in popularity with each edition. The truly international event takes its name from the energy-sapping distance covered by the lap of the island - 312km (194 miles). If, understandably, this seems a little too daunting, then there is also a 167km (104 miles) loop on offer which starts with the 312 and covers the same first set of mountains before taking a shorter route back to the finish. 


If the distance alone isn't enough, the 312 has a time limit of 14 hours. However, to help riders get round within the time limit, there is a 'Green Dot Group' of local riders who set a steady speed in order to finish inside the allocated time. 

Starting in Playa de Muro, on the north coast of the island, the event heads in an anti-clockwise direction. The island's longest climb, the fearsome Puig Major, is tackled first before skirting along the stunning coastline through Soller and Deia. At Valldemosa the routes split, with the 167 returning on quiet roads through the centre of the island to the finish. The 312 carries on to Calvia, Palma, Ses Salines, Porto Cristo and Arta, before the final run-in to the finish at Playa de Muro. 


Entry costs include an event cycling jersey, finisher T-shirt and certificate. The event is fully signposted, has well-stocked feed stations, on course mechanical and medical back up and a broom wagon if your bike fails.
