Triathlon Training Camp

Our yearly camp is held at “Only Fools & Horses”, 376 Oaia Road, Muriwai Beach, Waimauku. The camp is $400 in total for the entire group including evening meal, so this cost is shared by all those attending.  You ONLY need to bring what they need for breakfast.  We treat this morning breakfast as race morning breakfast, so the athletes eat what they would before a race, including electrolyte drinks etc. and is personal to each athlete.  It really is an excellent camp to fine tune your skills.
 
The format is as follows:-
  • Friday - Arrive 5:00pm
  • 20 minute run, 20 minute ride, 20 minute swim
  • 7:00pm Dinner and a talk
  • 9:00pm lights out
  • Saturday - Wakeup 5:00am for breakfast
  • 6:00am to 7:00am Swim
  • 7:15am to 9:30am Bike Ride
  • 9:45am to 10:15am Run
  • 11:00pm Brunch with parents and depart.
This year we were very lucky to have Allison Roe MBE joining us on the Friday, to share her experiences and provide some great training ideas for the kids.  When Allison was at school she won national titles in cross country running, cycling and triathlon, before taking up running, and is a great motivational speaker for women.
 
The camp was a resounding success, with 12 kids from Baradene, Sacred Heart, Kings and Botany College getting together to take part in a sport they so obviously all enjoy.  It's truly amazing that young kids can put such intense training in and still walk away with smiles on their faces.
 
One of the parents commented "Just wanted to say thank you very much for allowing our daughter to join your training camp.  She really enjoyed it and everyone made her very welcome.  As you probably discovered she's pretty quiet and a bit shy but she came home buzzing & had a great time."  This cements the principles of what we are trying to achieve in creating a safe, enjoyable training environment.
