With its strong winds and hills, Lanzarote is the perfect location for cycle training. The island is a hub for cyclists and triathletes, road conditions are good and generally quiet. It is also home to the famous Ironman Lanzarote along with numerous other races.

Conditions in March are typically warm, with an average temperature of 18C, little rain and generally lighter winds. A perfect location for a training camp.

Sands Beach Resort in Costa Teguise will provide high quality half board accommodation for the week. The resort includes a 25m pool, trails for running and easy access to Lanzarote's cycling routes.


The focus for these camps is early season training volume, a hint of competition and some fun. Each day will involve swim, bike and run: coached sessions in the 25m pool, guided rides around the island, including the Ironman course, and daily run options to complete the training.

Sessions will incorporate sections of the Ironman bike course, the Ocean Lava bike course and the new Lanzarote 70.3 bike course, along with the traditional time trial up Tabayesco.

The price of the 2017 camps is to be determined.

This price includes half board accommodation (based on 2 athletes sharing a room) at Sands Beach Resort along with all coaching and support throughout the camp.

This price does not include travel or insurance. Athletes will need to arrange their own.

A 50% deposit is required to reserve your place, full payment is required 6 weeks before camp start.


The camp is targeted at Ironman and Half Ironman athletes, but would be suitable for anyone looking for a challenging training week. Cycling will make up the majority of the training and you should be comfortable and prepared to ride daily with distances potentially up to the full Ironman. Athletes should expect between 2 to 7 hours of training per day, although there will be options to do more or less.

The camp will be limited to 12 athletes to ensure that everyone will receive a high standard of coaching and support.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact Russ.


Russ Cox, experienced endurance coach and Ironman athlete, will provide a challenging itinerary for all athletes based upon his coaching principles and repeated visits to Lanzarote. He'll join athletes for bike and run sessions providing support and coaching advice as well as coaching poolside every day.
