By | Uncategorized | 4 Comments

We’ve been hard at work behind the scenes over the last 18 months to secure the best available facilities, team, program and value for money available to athletes coming to our camps and we are happy to announce that we are launching our camps in April this year at the world class Michael House School. We will be kicking off with our first one focused on 70.3 distance on the 29th April with a jam packed long weekend of not only training but with a focus on the athletes leaving with training knowledge, confidence and a better understanding of their bodies when placed under training stress.

We look forward to welcoming everyone in April to an exciting future of many more camps to come and hope to see you there, spots are limited to 20 athletes so feel free to pop us a mail with any questions you may have or to book your spot now. Details below:
