2018 BASE CAMP - EASTER - Registration NOW CLOSED. (Updated 3/13/2018)
The 2018 Easter Base Camp has been CANCELLED. Late spring weather combined with an early Easter has resulted in low registrations.Current registrants are offered a full refund or transfer to the May Long-Weekend Triathlon Warrior Race-Ready Camp.
The Triathlon Warrior Easter Base Camp will return April 10-13th, 2020
The Triathlon Warrior Penticton Base Camp is 4 days of aerobic intensity "base-training" with the primary focus on cycling. It has been a season-starter for Western Canadian triathletes and cyclists for 17 years - The camp also provides the opportunity for on-course training for local events including the Prospera GranFondo Axel Merckx Okanagan. This is an opportunity for athletes of all levels, to get together and have a weekend of supported training, in a fun atmosphere.
Lead by former professional triathlete and coach, Kevin Cutjar, coaches and group leaders will guide cycling routes in the South Okanagan that most visiting athletes don't usually experience. Riders will be grouped by ability, experience and current fitness level and/or desired ride distance (or time) for each day. Each group of 10 to 15 athletes will have a dedicated support vehicle for each ride (and run).
Regarding Cycling ability - Minimum: You need to be able to confidently clip in and out of your pedals, change gears and have a good understanding of road rules. Group riding experience is beneficial, but not essential. Tight bunch riding may be performed by the more experienced riders, but is generally discouraged for the less experienced. Within the group structure, riders are encouraged to ride at a sensible pace for the group and stick together.... No-one will be left behind. There is ample support for all levels of rider.
Competitive? All abilities are catered to in this camp. While we accommodate and encourage newer athletes, we also have multi-time (Hawaii) Ironman finishers and Ultra Distance Champions as group leaders. This camp will suit the strongest athletes who are out for a big volume spring training camp.
One 60-90 minute swim workout will be held at the Penticton Community Centre 10 lane, 25 meter pool facility, which also includes hot-tub, steam-room and sauna, which may appeal to the non-swimmers after a big day on the bike!
To enhance recovery and the fun factor of the weekend, 2 Yoga classes are included. Shioki Yoga has a great program suited to cyclists and triathletes.
