Going Long

Middle and Long Distance Camp, with Mark Pearce

Our unique triathlon clinics bring together some of the UK's leading triathlon coaches, sports scientists and physiotherapists. Our Team provides an environment within which you can take stock and discover how you can become your best. During this long distance camp Mark Pearce, head coach at Intelligent Triathlon, will lead your swimming, cycling and running training. With quality sessions delivered on-site and through the high quality roads and trails of the Mayenne, we will help prepare you for the season ahead. Your immediate and future goals will be reviewed in small groups and 1-1, helping you to plan your way forward. You will enjoy informative seminars, covering the latest thinking in race psychology, personal nutrition and efficient training.

Its not all about the training: whilst with us you will be able to sample our delicious meals and home-made snacks, relax in our 9 hectares of grounds and enjoy our great health and fitness facilities. All in the company of like-minded individuals, at our stunning 19th Century Chateau.

You will leave with a clear idea of your improvement pathway, furnished with personalised reports and recommended programs to incorporate into your future training.
