2017 TRAINING CAMPS

Don’t miss this opportunity to train with Orange County’s premier IRONMAN Certified triathlon coaches, Michael Collins & Sherry Rennard. They are a powerful combination of experience, knowledge and skill. Michael & Sherry both won their Age Group at IRONMAN Arizona 2016 and will be competing at the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawaii on October  14, 2017.  Training Camp #1 at Lake Tahoe was a huge success and we’re looking forward to Camp #2 in Valyermo, CA, a two hour drive from Orange County.

Camp # 2 – IRONMAN 3 Day Race Rehearsal Camp – Sept 22-24, 2017

SlowTwitch Ranch, Valyermo, CA

With Coaches Michael Collins & Sherry Rennard

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

Best for athletes attending IRONMAN KONA, IRONMAN ARIZONA 140.6 AND 70.3, LOS CABOS 140.6 AND 70.3, or other late season race. Also great for athletes wanting to get a head start on what they need to know for a 2018 race.  All ability levels welcome. Most of the routes will be on loop or out and back courses, so you can decide how much volume you need or can handle. Even high level athletes will learn new concepts to improve their racing which could possibly help them reach new personal best performances.
