These weekend will give you the opportunity to get a fitness boost leading into your next races, learn how to execute the race to the best of your abilities, enjoy the lectures on what strategy to use (pacing, nutrition, equipment, technique & training), explore quiet and safe roads to cycle and race with your friends and team mates.

Video: Past ironguides camp in Hua Hin
The ironguides training camp in Phuket was the most fun I’ve had in years! As a beginner triathlete with zero race experience, it was the perfect opportunity to learn new skills. Each session challenged me, but it was not so overwhelming that I couldn’t participate. I also learned from the excellent lectures, met new people and had fun. The training camp was motivating and inspiring. The race simulation on the final morning gave me confidence to leap into this new sport. THANK YOU IRONGUIDES!
