1st – 11th March 2018

This camp is aimed at those athletes who have a goal to do a long distance/ IRONMAN race in the fairly distant future. There really is no minimum standard required but we do ask that athletes are realistic regarding their abilities as the training will be hard and the volume high.

This will be the 9th year of this very successful and popular Long Distance camp.

The Camp for 2018 will follow a very similar format as in previous years and will be again 10 days. This actually means athletes only need to take one more day off work but gives you 3 extra days to train.

This camp is again ideally timed for people to use as a key block of training going into their early IM races or to use it as a Volume block of training for their latter IM races.

In 2010 and 2015 Richard Hobson used this camp as a key period in  preparation for the 2010 and 2015 Lanzarote IM, it really was the perfect timing and helped tremendously to prepare for the race and to go on to qualify for Hawaii.



  • High volume week of training
  • An extra emphasis on the cycling (as this is the hardest one to train for in the UK winter)
  • To include key race specific IRONMAN conditioning sessions
  • To work on the Mental toughness required for IRONMAN
  • To consider good recovery
  • To work on race nutrition and hydration


Richard Hobson, 10 years as a pro, 5 times National Champion, Olympic Coach to 2 athletes, Performance Coach for the British Triathlon Association, Head Coach Bath Triathlon Performance Centre, Age Group Coach to European and World Age Group Qualifiers.
