This will be the 12th year of this very successful and popular Long Distance camp. The Camp for 2021 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. It 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 I used this camp as a key period in my preparation for the 2010 and 2015 Lanzarote IM, it really was the perfect timing and I know helped me tremendously to prepare for the race and to go on to qualify for Hawaii. So if you want to escape the worst of the winter at benefit from a key block of training then join me and my team along with the others on the camp for this high volume but very relaxed and informal training camp". Richard Hobson
Little emphasis will be placed onto technique and no time spent in the lecture room. However every session will be planned out and explained well in advance so that everyone goes into every session with clear goals and expectations. There will also be plenty of time for informal chat over coffee!
