Event description

Description

The concept of our Training Camp is for intermediate or higher level triathletes to embrace a change of scenery and enjoy a healthy mix of fulfilling, structured training sessions that will be delivered by coaches with a passion for multi-sport. The midweek break will also be a chance to meet some new like minded people (including Racepace athetles) & a time to relax & enjoy some downtime in perfect surroundings.


Based from an ideal location just outside Ribchester in the beautiful Ribble Valley, Lancashire, 'Somerwood' boasts truly fantastic facilities including underfloor heating, games room with full-sized snooker table, table-tennis table, hot tub, sauna, tennis court and cinema room. The base offers great access to fantastic cycling and trail running routes as well as nearby swimming pools, a running track and closed-road cycle track.


The camp will be led by BTF Level 3 coach Rodger Wilkins with support from coaches Sarah Jepson and Beau Smith. The Camp is aimed at Intermediate or higher level triathletes* and where appropriate sessions will involve being in one of two groups.

Comprehensive sessions over the four days include*:

Swim session
Wattbike testing session
Outdoor road bike or MTB session
Bike skills session
Track session (running)
Trail running
Gym work (core and body strength)
Yoga session
Q&A session

At the end of the camp each athlete will have the opportunity to sit down with the relevant coach to discuss their strengths and weaknesses and ways they could improve their fitness and skills for the upcoming season.

Meals: Breakfast will be provided on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The group will venture out to a local establishment on the Wednesday for an evening meal. Athletes will source and be able to prepare all other meals* for themselves in the superb, fully equipped 'Somerwood' kitchen.
