Training camp based on the spectacular new Marbella IRONMAN® 70.3 course, and fully coached by our certified coaches
Marbella, Spain, December 19, 2017: To celebrate the first IRONMAN® 70.3 Marbella on 29th April 2018, we have developed an exciting triathlon training camp based around the stunning IRONMAN® route. The camp has been organised for individuals or groups. The camp is perfect for a sporty Easter getaway where you can combine your family holiday with some exceptional fully coached triathlon training. It will also be a great opportunity to get to know the IM 70.3 Marbella course in detail and to get the best possible preparation for the race.
This 5-star training camp in Marbella from 8th to 14th April 2017 will be based in the superb Aloha Hill Resort and features fully coached swim, bike and run sessions suitable for all levels, on-site around the clock support and transportation to training venues. The facilities are exceptional and feature a spa & beauty salon, restaurant, pool bar, heated 25m swimming pool and kids club.
The training program includes swim video analysis, open water swimming in the sea on the IRONMAN® 70.3 course, full reconnaissance of the IRONMAN® 70.3 bike course, long rides through Sierra de las Nievas and Sierra de Grazalema and running sessions along the Paseo Maritimo and on mountain trails. We also include yoga and recovery sessions and a nutrition clinic.
The camp will be lead by British Triathlon Federation and IRONMAN® Certified Coach Karen Parnell and by Pablo Vazquez, Level 3 Triathlon Coach and Head Coach of Sun Tri Sports.
Peter Vriesman, Managing Director of Sun Tri Sports says “We are really excited about creating a camp specifically for the brand-new IRONMAN® 70.3 Marbella course as it is in our backyard and offers truly amazing scenery while being challenging at the same time. We are also pleased to announce an addition to our coaching team, Karen Parnell. She is an IRONMAN® certified coach, British Triathlon Federation coach and Personal Trainer. She will bring a new dimension to our coaching staff”.
Karen is a British Triathlon Federation Coach and Tutor, IRONMAN® certified Coach and ASA Open Water Swimming Coach. Karen is also a certified Level 4 Personal Trainer and has studied sports nutrition and psychology. Karen is passionate about coaching and triathlon and has competed in Triathlons in the UK, US, France and Spain up to IRONMAN® 70.3 distance.

Karen, who lives in Spain says “I am thrilled to join the Sun Tri Sports coaching team and looking forward to working on new projects such as the 70.3 Marbella Camp. I’m also hoping to add women specific training camps and swim technique-focused camps to the training camp line up at the Costa del Sol. This location is ideal for spectacular mountain cycling, sea and lake open water swimming and trail running. Sun Tri Sports is an organisation truly focused on athletes, making sure the training experience is always tailored to the athlete’s needs, fully coached and supported and most of all, a lot of fun!
