Challenge Family and Challenge Tri Camp – the leading triathlon and coaching provider – partner up for the upcoming three years. The two parties already worked together for several years, but in a press release Challenge Family mentioned the extended agreement will “see the partnership further strengthened to provide a number of key benefits for athletes, including access to race-specific training camps and race entry options, as well as race-specific coaching services for all levels of athletes.”
The CEO of Challenge Tri Camp, Brent Perkins, said: “Over the years our partnership with Challenge Family has always been beneficial for everyone, and this new agreement further extends our plan to work together in the triathlon community. The past 18 months has been very difficult for race organizers, and we’ve had to postpone many of our planned camps, but we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel and what better way to celebrate than with our friends at Challenge Family.”
“Challenge Tri Camp are renowned for their work in many aspects of triathlon, from camps to coaching, and their unrivalled experience made it an easy decision for us to renew our partnership with them”, the CTO of Challenge Family, Richard Belderok, commented. “We know Challenge Tri Camp’s worldwide audience of triathletes will be keen to enjoy the benefits of being part of Challenge Family”, he adds.
Challenge Tri Camp offers either a four- or seven-night training camp in preparation for a selection of Challenge Family events. The camps will take place about six weeks prior to the event to ensure athletes are fully prepared when they appear at the start line of a race.
The Challenge Tri Camp will include the practice of swim starts and exits on the course, including tips on how to improve your swimming and master your transition. Also, the camps will allow athletes to go over different parts of the bike course and run course, which will help in forming a strategy on how to tackle and pace each one of these disciplines. “These pre-race training camps will enhance the race day experience and get athletes in peak condition both mentally and physically for the challenge ahead”, as stated in the press release.
Information about the locations and dates of the different Challenge Tri Camps will follow in the upcoming weeks; including special deals for athletes who like to join both the camp and the race.
