Pyrenees Multisport is a specialized triathlon training centre in the French Pyrenees. It was set up in 2004 by Ian & Julie, both Ironman athletes and long time cyclists, whose experience will help you get the most out of your stay.
You can come and stay in our farm house on self-guided triathlon holidays, or participate in one of the triathlon camps we run throughout the year.
All abilities are welcome on our triathlon training camps and sessions will cater for groups of different abilities.
Pyrenees Multisport runs out of a 19th century farm house in the small village of Luscan, close to supermarkets and the town of Lourse Barrouse where there is a small bar/restaurant.
There are double, twin and 3 – 4 bed rooms with ensuite bathrooms. The house has a terrace where meals are served or where you can just relax in the sun and admire the view of the mountains.
There is a comfortable lounge with Sky TV and books, and for the winter, a wood burner.
The house was converted specifically with the athlete in mind and has a washroom, with washing machines and a tumble drier, where you can also store your cycling and running gear.
There is also a bike barn where you can store your bikes and carry out repairs. There is a qualified bike mechanic on hand at all times. We also have a range of rental bikes that you can use if you don’t want to bring your own.
Breakfast and 3 course evening meals are provided and there is a kitchenetter for you to self-cater or make snacks.
Our meals are all home cooked using fresh ingredients.
Pyrenees Multisport Training
Ian has the BF5 French Triathlon coaching qualification and coaches the Triathlon camps as well as guiding the rides. Julie also guides the riding and assists with swim coaching at the lake and pool.
There is an endless pool on site at the centre, on the terrace next to the house. It is slightly wider than standard endless pools and has a more powerful motor so even advanced swimmers can get a great workout. An underwater camera and mirrors allows your storke technique to be analysed.
Within 10km of the centre are 4 lakes ideal for open water swimming, with crystal clear water.
We have full use of a 25m indoor pool, and also an outdoor 50m pool during the summer.Cycling
Being based in the foothills of the Pyrenees means there is plenty of varied riding, from rolling countryside to the famous climbs of the Tour De France. Running
There are many running trails, from flat to hilly, starting at the centre. There is also a small cinder track nearby. Further into the valley there are spectacular trails in the high mountains.Racing
Throughout the season there are many triathlon races you can take part in, and in the winter there are also great races involving skiing, biking and running.
We organise our own mini practice triathlons throughout the year to coincide with our training camps. We have also put on Olympic distance triathlons and can put on longer practice events if required. The courses are compact around the lake and fully marked so no one can get lost.
We set up the transitions and the aid stations so you can simulate your race exactly without having to worry about anything. It is fantastic fun.Transport
We will arrange airport pick ups (Toulouse airport) and if you choose a self guided holiday then we will always be on hand to take you to the local pools.For More InformationWebsite:
