This year will see the launch of Charterhouse Triathlon Camps which have been designed to cater for anyone who is contemplating their first triathlon or perhaps looking to improve technique after their first competition. The first camp will take place on 31st March – 1st April 2012 using the fabulous facilities at Charterhouse School which is set in over 200 acres of Surrey countryside.

At the camp you will have the opportunity to talk and learn from running experts Saucony and other experienced athletes including UK professional Sam Gardner to gain valuable tips and advice. Experienced trainers will be on hand to take you through the five key disciplines in triathlon to ensure you are able to maximise your achievements in each area. The camp will cover all aspects of triathlon competition as well as transitions, bike set up and maintenance, and the importance of nutrition.

As a well-established Health and Fitness Club supporting athletes from beginners to Olympians, we have the right people, the right facilities and the right environment to help new triathletes achieve their goal.

Sam Gardner says, "Triathlons are a mix of disciplines where you will transition from wet-suited swimmer to cyclist to runner and each discipline has its own training and techniques that you will need to master. They say 'practice makes perfect', but do you know how and what to practice? We will make sure you get the most out of the camp in preparation for your first triathlon".

To attend the camp you should have a basic level of fitness and swimming ability to:

  • Swim > 50m crawl unaided
  • Run >1500m
  • Can cycle and have your own bike (preferably a road bike)
