    2. LIFESPORT MONT TREMBLANT ULTIMATE CAMP

    Mont Tremblant Ultimate Triathlon Training Camp (May 29-May 31)

    Join Olympic Team and Ironman Coach Philippe Bertrand, along with competitive triathlete and LifeSport Coach Louis Therien, for a special preparation camp for the incredibly popular Ironman and Ironman 70.3 Mont-Tremblant course!
    The weekend will include a thorough analysis of all aspects of the Mont Tremblant race course. Participants will gain first-hand experience by learning how to efficiently tame the bike course climbs, ride the flatter sections smoothly and learn how to gain time on the fast descents. During the fully supported ride, athletes will also ride the Chemin Duplessi section several times (the difficult last 20km of the bike course) to better understand its challenges and to create a personal game plan for when they tackle it on race day!

    The same analysis will be done for the out and back run course by identifying each of the different sections the athletes will face on race day. By training on course, athletes will be better prepared mentally and physically and will be able to prepare for what will be in store for them leading up to race day. The weekend will also include work on open water swim techniques including starts, drafting and pacing.

    Discussions will take place to educate participants on nutrition strategies for long distance racing, as well as proper race day equipment selection. Other topics covered will include pacing strategies for all three disciplines and preparing for race day conditions! A transition clinic will be held to help athletes shave those extra free minutes off their times.

    LifeSport's training camps are designed to suit anyone from the first time Ironman/Ironman 70.3 competitor, the experienced athlete or triathletes who are looking for a great learning opportunity. All participants gain extensive practical training knowledge and personalized tactical information to guarantee race day success!

    All rides and runs will be fully supported.

    4. TRAINING CAMP IN CLERMONT, FLORIDA
     Rick Hellard   (General Comments)

    Zone3sports is pleased to announce that we will be hosting an 8 day training camp in Clermont, Florida.

    This is a training camp, not a vacation, therefore, for logistical and quality control purposes, this group will be limited to 10 people.

    Camp dates are from Sunday, March 29th to Sunday, April 5th.
    Cost is $500 CDN + HST.

    Clermont is 40k west of Orlando, with direct or almost direct flights from Ottawa, it’s really easy to get to. We’ve checked the routes, the pools, the lakes and the trails, and the area is superb for an early season training camp.

    Contrary to popular impression, not all Florida is flat—and Clermont will prove that: it is a rather hilly area.

    Camp includes:
    • Rick Hellard as your ‘guide’ for the week.
    • Four swims with Sara McLarty and Swim Like a Pro Master’s Team!
    • Possibility of some alligator-free open water swims (weather permitting).
    • Heated 50m pool within diving (ha!) distance
    • Six rides with varying distances and terrain, from 40k on the easy days to 180k (Great Floridian bike course) on the harder days. We plan to do a fair bit o’ riding in the hills. All rides will have detailed maps and route descriptions provided.
    • Six runs of varying intensity, duration, and terrain.
    • Bike support.
    • There will always be options on the ride and run routes to shorten or lengthen as required.
    Camp does not include:
    • Transportation to and from Clermont
    • Lodging, food
    • Transportation within Clermont, or to and from the start locations.

    Additional option:
    House sharing--$250 for 8 nights
    We’ll combine costs on food essentials.
