“I got so much more than I expected out of the camp. We trained hard, but intelligently. Mark gave each of us a great deal of attention and was able to focus sessions to help meet our individual goals. I found I gained as much from working on skills and techniques as I did from doing hard sessions. This mix of training also ensured we made the most of our time, using our recovery time to learn from Mark's experience”.
Drew Fuller – AG athlete and attendee on camp in 2015

Head Coach Mark Pearce, will be running the camp.  He has worked with and coached a wide variety of athletes from Olympians to 70.3 Pros, AG winners, and AG competitors wanting to improve their own performance.

Mark will be leading all the sessions and providing on-going feedback and support throughout the camp.

Having travelled to camps all around the world for over 10 years in his role with British Triathlon, coach Mark knows a thing or two about how to run a successful camp, and the best places to visit.

Benefit from his technical coaching expertise, pick his brain on all aspects of coaching, sports science and racing, and go home a better-prepared triathlete!

What's Involved

This camp isn’t just about training.  We will work with each of you individually to ensure the training is appropriate to your needs, and provide coaching in all sessions where appropriate.

In particular one of our areas of expertise is working with athletes to improve their technical abilities in all three disciplines.  All sessions will be managed to each athletes’ ability. Some may be very challenging but we will always be supporting you in these sessions.  

A typical training week will consist of multiple sessions per day and across swim, bike run and strength and conditioning.  Some of these will be focused upon training, others tailored towards recovery, or technical development. 

If your experience/fitness enables you to do more than others we will be able to facilitate this.  Similarly if the programme is a step up for you, then we can help to  adjust it so it works for you.

Having attended our camp you will undoubtedly come home having learned a lot about the sport of triathlon and how to get the most from your training at home.  

We will also be delivering several short seminars in the evenings on a variety of topics from training methods, how to use technology, feedback on technical sessions. 


"Having never been on a training camp before I did not know what to expect. The opportunity to go on camp with Mark and the Intelligent Triathlon Training group was a great first experience. Each day presented a new and fun challenge on both a technical and physical front that ensured continual learning and application. This week of work turned into much more as times started falling in training once home and ultimately come race season - what a holiday, what an investment."
Eloise du Luart – 2014 AG European Champ on camp in 2015 with us

Sample Programme

You will see in the programme that there are optional sessions, and quite a varied duration or distance in the description. 

This will enable those who have more capacity for training to be able to get the most from the camp and those who aren't used to doing as much, to build up. 

We keep the timetable the same so that if we have a great swimmer with less bike and/or run experience they can get best experience in all disciplines, or maybe it’s a great biker who is a slower swimmer. 

Each session, every day is set to your ability.
