Another Race to Add to My Want List . . . Ultra Mallorca
Mallorca is Beautiful! It is an island off the coast of Spain. Mountains surrounded by water and tons of history. Great place to rock climb and an amazing place to visit. I went there 10 years ago did some touring, beaching, and rock climbing. I highly recommend it.
Ultra Mallorca looks like a . . .awesome race, my friends did it last year and looks like they signed up again. Registration opened November 1st and is already closed. It is a 65 mile ultra with 13,845' of vertical gain across one of the most beautiful regions of the island. It crosses Valldemossa where Chopin wrote some of his masterpieces and Deia, where I spent my honeymoon. My wife an I traveled the races entire route with by car. The region is known for its hostel to hostel hiking trails and we saw tons of hikers. We planned on returning to do just that; maybe an ultra or two as well. Now that was 10 years ago and I still plan on going. It would be a great way to see Spain.
