Beginners Triathlon Camp

19th April – 25th April 2024 

This camp will cater for all abilities, from beginner to experienced, who are interested in various distances – Sprint, Olympic or Long distance. In other words, this camp is for everybody.

Training

The training sessions will be based at Club La Santa, while the rides will take participants around many different parts of the island.

The swimming sessions will mostly be in one of our 50 meter pools but if you want to try an open water swim, we have our very own Lagoon – which is perfect for beginners, as there are no strong currents or big waves. The runing sessions will be both on and off road and we will also do some work on the track.

We will be aiming to improve your technical knowledge of the sport whilst also increasing your fitness. On some evenings we will be holding lectures on various triathlon-related subjects and we will have some open forums, where you can test the coaches’ knowledge and experience. Athletes joining should be able to swim at least 100m front crawl.
