Outlaw training camps

TheTriathlonCoach.com are official coaches of the UK's newest long-distance race

Places for the Outlaw Triathlon training camps are now available to be booked online at www.onestepbeyond.org.uk.

Places are limited and offer those who take part a unique insight to the specifics of the Outlaw and iron-distance training and racing in general. The courses will be led by Simon Ward of TheTriathlonCoach.com, 220 Coach of the year 2009 and one of the UK’s leading elite and age-group coaches. You can find more information about Simon Ward and his coaching team by visiting their website www.TheTriathlonCoach.com.

The camps will take place at Holme Pierrepont, the start and finish venue for the Outlaw, on 21 March and 16th May, 20 and 12 weeks out from the event, respectively.

Simon Ward said: “The camps will familiarise athletes with the various aspects of the course, which looks like it could be super fast! We’ll also cover things like planning and fine tuning your training, nutrition and race strategy.

“Iron-distance racing invariably requires athletes to overcome challenges throughout their training and preparation and on the day itself. Attending a camp will give athletes every opportunity to prepare themselves for success.”

Athletes will have the opportunity to try swimming in Holme Pierrepont Lake during the second camp, and both camps will incorporate elements of running and cycling as well. Based at Holme Pierrpont, the camps will familiarise athletes with how things will be set up when the Outlaw takes place on 8 August 2010. Places for the camps, and for the race are still available, but filling fast!

Make sure you are properly prepared when the Outlaw kicks off this August!
