Upcoming Camps

2020 Tri Training Camp Enquire
29 February 2020 - 7 March 2020
Sands Beach Resort, Lanzarote
A week of high volume swim, bike and run to start the season.
Includes swim video review and individual swim coaching.


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 and the Lanzarote 70.3 bike course, along with the traditional time trial up Tabayesco.

A £150 deposit is required to reserve your place, with a second instalment of £300 in November 2019 and the final balance in January 2020. A full refund is available on bookings prior to November 2019, a partial refund (less £150) prior to January 2020. There will be no refunds from 6 weeks before the start of camp.

One-to-one swim coaching


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.
