Overall win for Alison Mackenzie at IRONMAN 70.3 Mallorca


A huge podium haul for Great Britain athletes in Alcúdia

While IRONMAN 70.3 Mallorca has not featured a Pro race since 2017, that has not dented its popularity with athletes generally – and British athletes in particular – who make up a significant part of the reported 4000+ athletes taking part if what is the largest IRONMAN 70.3 event on the M-Dot circuit.

Big numbers once again this year – with some high quality athletes collected a huge haul of podium finishes. Let’s take a look at them.

The fastest female athlete overall – taking first place in her F35-39 division – was Alison Mackenzie. Alison is no stranger to these pages, she won the ETU Championships over the Standard distance (Tartu, Estonia) and Sprint Distance (Glasgow, Scotland) in 2018 and early this year took the Gold medal in the Scottish Duathlon Championships. Another race format and distance, another win – clearly a versatile athlete.

Alison was joined by several other GB female category winners including Jo Wright (25-29), the Outlaw Triathlon record holder Gill Fullen (55-59) and IRONMAN World Championship winner, Linda Ashmore (70-74)

The fastest five British male Age-Group athletes were all separated by less than two minutes, with Ian Dempsey just three seconds faster than Sion Stansfield.

Here is the full breakdown of the fastest British athletes overall across all divisions, followed by the 21 British podium finishers this year.
