DO3 TRAINING CAMPS

Sands Beach Resort, Costa Teguise, Lanzarote 

NEXT CAMP: Thursday 2nd March - Thursday 9th March 2023 (6 training days)

We are pleased to announce that our next triathlon training camp will take place in Lanzarote in spring 2023. The camp will be held at the amazing Sands Beach Resort in Costa Teguise from Thursday 2nd March until Thursday 9th March 2023.

Our camps are designed to cater for triathletes of all abilities and are low pressure. You are free to take part in as much (or as little) as you like. The island of Lanzarote is perfect for triathlon training. Good quality, wide roads are perfect for cycling, and the island's volcanoes provide some challenging terrain. The weather in March is perfect for training, while still being warm enough to catch some spring rays during down time.

The Venue

Sands Beach Resort is located in Costa Teguise, Lanzarote. The facilities at the resort are excellent and include a fully equipped gym, 25m laned pool and and other sports facilities. There are sports massage, physiotherapy and spa facilities also available if needed (these are not included in the camp fee).

Sands Beach has two restaurants, both offering great quality and a wide range of food. Other facilities at the resort include: sports shop, mini-supermarket, hairdresser, bike workshop, cafe and bar. The whole resort has Wi-Fi coverage (included in the camp fee).

The Schedule

The camp schedule does vary from day to day but in general, the day starts with a swim session of around an hour followed by breakfast (the food at Sands Beach is really good - in fact probably too good!). Most days will then have a bike ride followed by a run later in the day. The overall feel of the camp will be informal and relaxed (sessions will start on time however, so be warned!).

Thanyapura Sports Resort, Phuket, Thailand

NEXT CAMP: 9 - 16th February 2023

In 2023 we will be returning to the amazing Thanyapura Health and Sports Resort on the beautiful tropical island of Phuket, Thailand. 

Phuket is famous for its year-round warm weather with average highs of 27-29 C. Add to this incredible scenery and world class training facilities and this makes Thanyapura the perfect venue for those looking for a quality winter training week. 

The Training Venues

  • Swimming sessions take place in the beautiful Thanyapura 50m olympic pool. The pool is only a few minutes walk from the hotel accommodation which makes the early morning routine super easy and stress free. Alongside the main pool is an additional 25m pool which is perfect for warm-ups, cool downs and drills. 

  • Bike sessions take place on the roads around Phuket. Road surfaces are very good and the views are incredible. There are plenty of hills to climb as well as flats to stretch the legs and admire the views. Even the bike hill reps session is a pleasure as it is done within metres of the ocean. Just watch out for the crabs scuttling across the road!

  • Run sessions - Thanyapura resort is set in the countryside so we have the choice of either running around some of the regions roads or trails, or on the world class running track right situated on the resort itself.  

The Schedule

The camp schedule will vary from day-to-day and will be flexible but in general, the day will start with a swim session of around an hour. It will then be time to refuel with breakfast before preparing to head out for the next training session.  On most days there will be a bike ride. The rides will vary in length and terrain, each with a specific training focus.  There will also be run sessions on most days. Again, each run session will have a specific aim (even if that is just a gentle social/recovery run following the bike).  

The overall feel of the camp will be informal and relaxed (sessions will start on time however, so be warned!).  Athletes are free to choose whether they attend all training sessions - there is no pressure from the coach, it is up to you! Between training sessions, your time will be your own to rest, recover and explore!

 

The Costs and What's Included

Camp Fee £749 per person.

  • Transfers from Phuket Airport

  • Bed and breakfast accommodation at Thanyapura Resort

  • Use of pool, running track and other sports facilities
