Feeling like you need to kickstart your 2019 triathlon training? Then this month’s exclusive subscriber-only competition is the one to enter! We’ve teamed up with Group Evolution Retreats and HUUB Design to give you the chance to win two places, worth over £4,000, on a luxury triathlon performance retreat based in a chateau in the Pays de la Loire, France, as well as a HUUB Anemoi tri-suit, the ground-breaking new aero suit, worth £289.99.

The lucky winners can attend either of the 2019 performance retreats, taking place on 22-28 March or 17-23 May 2019. Alternatively, they can receive a discount (equivalent to two free adult places) on a family triathlon holiday on 17-23 April or 12-18 July 2019. 

Group Evolution provides highly personalised endurance sports, health and wellness retreats from their very own chateau in the Pays de la Loire, France. The 19th century fairytale Chateau de la Motte Henry is set in 27 acres of beautifully-landscaped parkland grounds, with accommodation and relaxation areas equivalent to those found in luxury boutique hotels. The on-site sports facilities include an extensive on-site performance gym, 20-person exercise studio, fully-equipped treatment room, 1.5km woodchip running trail and swimming facilities.

Group Evolution’s triathlon performance retreats take everything to the next level, treating you like elite athletes. Each guest is allocated a mentor from the expert coaching team who learns about you, your goals and your capabilities in advance of the retreat and then tailors a programme to you. This will combine ability-based group training, informative seminars and 1-to-1 sessions. 

With access to nearby lakes and rivers; picturesque, rolling cycling on quiet roads with quality ‘pavé’; and riverside running trails, they deliver a comprehensive, elite-level programme utilising the beauty of the surrounding region. Everything is delivered by respected experts, including experienced sports scientists, leading coaches (provided by partner Precision Coaching) and elite athletes, including brand ambassadors, triathletes Marc and Helen Jenkins and Olympic gold medal cyclist, Dani Rowe (née King). 

The prize winners will also receive a goody bag worth over £250 on arrival and will benefit from substantial discounts on our partners’ products, including HUUB Design. Beautiful surroundings, great social and sporting facilities, quality, personalised coaching and great company. Evolve to the next level!
