Details

A triathlon camp with Pyrenean Tour de France Cols. Pyrenees Multisport where the camp is based allows us to ride in the Pyrenean foothills, the Haute Pyrenees and it gives us the choice to do some time trialling on the flatter roads of the Garonne valley.

Tri Running:

The area around Luscan where Pyrenees Multisport is based also lends itself to some fine trail running with a 6.5km and 10km route already marked out and options to go further into the hills and explore the back country.

Tri Swimming:

The lake we use for swimming in situated at around 700m above sea level and is immensely picturesque. Thanks to Pyrenees Multisport’s setup we can either get a lift there or combine it with a ride while we have our swim kit transported to the lake.

Tri Training:

This camp is aimed at standard to middle distance athletes in terms of most of the distances covered but also open to long distance athletes as there is opportunity to add in mileage. We had a Celtman athlete training with us in 2017.

The camp’s unique feature is the BIG day which will include an Haute Category climb of that year’s Tour de France. In 2017 this was the Port de Bales, in 2018 we did the Tourmalet … let’s see what 2019 brings. If you don’t fancy scaling the highest climbs of the Pyrenees then we find an alternative for you on that day or those days.

There will be lots of flexibility and means to suit everyone. Also the final plan for the 2019 camp will be put together when we know who has signed up and what their abilities and aims are.

If your main event is in June, July or August then this will suit you perfectly. Likewise if you fancy a triathlon camp on quiet roads in stunning scenery with great cycling, running and swimming.

Swimming in mountain lakes, cycling classic Tour de France Cols and running on lush trails.

The base will be at Pyrenees Multisport in Luscan who will provide us with accommodation, breakfast and a 3 course dinner with some wine included.

Pyrenees Multisport also have carbon Rose Bikes for hire (for Euro 175 for the week) along with technical support for the rides. If you prefer to bring your own bike then this is included in the cost of the airport transfer from Toulouse Airport.

If time permits then there will be the possibility to offer swim video analysis in the endless pool. The same applies to 121 chats with the coach.

Option to arrive on Friday or Saturday
