Camp Dates: March 14th-19th, 2017
This year we’re hosting a long distance triathlon camp in Tucson, AZ with legendary triathlon coach and our friend, Jim Bruskewitz. Tucson, Arizona, is arguably the best winter training destination for triathletes in North America, and our camps are perfect for folks looking to get out of the cold for a few days. Whether you’re a veteran Ironman triathlete, road racer looking to upgrade a category or simply looking to log some sunny base miles, we can ensure an unforgettable experience at our beautiful Tucson location. Our Tucson camps offer an all-inclusive experience, with freshly prepared meals by our chef, full ride support, full-time bike mechanics and an opportunity to leave the stresses of life behind to focus on riding, relaxing and, most importantly, having fun!
