Our goal for this and all camps is to provide a schedule that focuses on personal improvement, and provides flexibility to cater for everyone’s individual needs, whether you have never done a triathlon before or are an experienced Ironman triathlete. All sessions are done in 2 or 3 ability groups so everyone feels comfortable training at the right level. Diversity is the key to our success!
