Each camp offers a wide range of training opportunities and allows you to experience the best that southern Arizona has to offer. Come and enjoy bike-friendly roads, mountain parks, beautiful desert scenery and remarkable outdoor training facilities. If our established camp dates don't fit your schedule, let us know and we'll design a custom training experience for groups of 6 or more people.

We strive to accommodate the needs of triathletes of all abilities. Most camp days offer daily options - often including short and long ride distances and your choice of swim and run workouts. Custom camps can offer a host of choices to groups - from lodging options to custom clinics. We want to make sure you work hard but don't get over your head. 

Tucson's geography is a postcard of cactus forests, rolling hills and awe-inspiring mountains. The weather this time of year is ideal - not too hot and not too cold - and boasts over 300 days of sunshine annually, making this an ideal location for winter training. Don't be surprised when you see professional triathletes and cycling teams conducting their pre-season training while you're here. 

Join us in 2015 and prepare yourself to fall in love with the majestic Southwest. 
Reserve early - Space is limited.
