Our schedule for 2020/2021 includes a series of off-road triathlon training weekends or weeks that are aimed at beginners and veteran athletes alike. We take care of all the logistics; accommodation, coaching, and technical advice so that all you need to do is train. The camp is run in conjunction with Mountain Bike Tours Nerja who have over 10 years experience mountain bike guiding in the area and offer MTB bike hire if required.
