Mont Tremblant Ultimate Triathlon Training Camp
Friday, May 29th - Sunday, May 31st

Join Olympic Team and Ironman Coach Philippe Bertrand, along with competitive triathlete and LifeSport Coach Louis Therien, for a special preparation camp for the incredibly popular Ironman and Ironman 70.3 Mont-Tremblant course! The weekend will include a thorough analysis of all aspects of the Mont Tremblant race course. Participants will gain first-hand experience by learning how to efficiently tame the bike course climbs, ride the flatter sections smoothly and learn how to gain time on the fast descents. During the fully supported ride,  athletes will also ride the Chemin Duplessi section several times (the difficult last 20km of the bike course) to better understand its challenges and to create a personal game plan for when they tackle it on race day!

The same analysis will be done for the out and back run course by identifying each of the different sections the athletes will face on race day.  By training on course, athletes will be better prepared mentally and physically and will be able to prepare for what will be in store for them leading up to race day.  The weekend will also include work on open water swim techniques including starts, drafting and pacing.

Ultimate Camp for Ironman Whistler
Friday, June 26th - Sunday, June 28th

This is a unique opportunity to receive long distance race specific training � an open water swim in Alta Lake which includes starts, sighting, pace efforts and drafting techniques. Athletes will learn nutrition strategies for long distance racing, bike pacing as well as proper race day equipment selection. The Whistler bike route is felt to be the most challenging in North America - ride the bike course to experience and learn how to tackle the mountain terrain. The weekend also includes a preview of the run course with feedback and guidance that will be invaluable to your preparation!

All lectures are held in The Whistler Hostel, just a short 10 minute drive from the base of the mountain. This isn't your typical hostel; it is a purpose-built facility that was originally used as part of the athlete's accommodation during the 2010 Winter Olympics. The beautiful building is the new standard of hosteling with all the amenities you'd expect and then some. All participants gain extensive practical training knowledge and personalized tactical information to guarantee race day success!
