Santa Cruz Training Camp – August 25

2 January 2018 No Comment

Your ultimate prep for upcoming Santa Cruz triathlons

Purposely a few weeks from Ironman 70.3 Santa Cruz (9/9) and the Santa Cruz Triathlon (9/23), this updated one day camp assists you in learning how to tackle the most challenging parts of each course. The first being the open water ocean swim around the famous Santa Cruz Wharf. The second is the out and back 25 or 56 mile rides up the gorgeous Pacific Coast Highway. Finally, run the key parts of the 10k or half marathon courses. The PacWest coaching staff will also share details on how to fly through your transitions between swim to bike and bike to run.

As always, we factor in all aspects to make your training camp experience the highest in quality at the best value so you can focus on one thing only and that’s train!
