Club La Santa, CoachJoeBeer.com and SwimForTri are teaming up to provide a structured training week aimed at triathletes working towards various distances. This provides the perfect springboard for their 2018 season.
We will use one of our 3 50-metre outdoor pools, quiet roads, well maintained running track and off road runs that cover different surfaces and terrain. The sessions are perfect for athletes from intermediate to experienced levels and the aim is to work with each person individually to ensure that they get the correct advice and training.
The camp would not be suitable for absolute beginners who may be used to a lower level of exercise, but athletes from single sports who have a few years endurance experience will find it manageable and great fun.
