Train hard all year round in the mountains & on the coast
Our triathlon Camp is a fusion of knowledge and experience, set in the triathlon training paradise of Andalusia. The camp is led by qualified coaches; Karen Parnell, Chili Tri, BTF Level 3 and IRONMAN certified coach and Jess Petersson, former professional IRONMAN athlete and Olympian, Freebird and highly experienced bike guides.

Whether you want to get some late season running and biking done in a warmer climate, surrounded with like-minded individuals and coaches or have some late season races coming up and need to get ready for then this is the camp for you. You will spend time running on the trails and inland loops as well as technique and speed work sessions on the run with Olympian Jess Petersson.
For the biking we have smooth roads which are quiet and safe - its perfect timing for some long steady rides to build some endurance. We will also add in intervals for those that want to and vary the routes, so you get to see lots of the area, villages and mountains! We have different paces and groups to ensure all levels are catered for.
For swimming we use the nearby crystal-clear lake for open water sessions and nearby 25m indoor swimming pool.

The scenery on this route is absolutely breath-taking we start with by riding up the Ribiera Valley towards Grazalema, the route then takes us through a beautiful high mountain plateau with limestone outcrops lining the road for several kilometres before we stop for refreshments in a ‘pueblo blanco’ (white village). After our pit stop we head back to Montecorto riding through one of my favourite sections of road ‘the cork tree forest’ before descending for 7km back to base.

Group Stretch Session or foam roller and a dip in the plunge pool.
Day 3: Monday
Today we head north of Montecorto where the landscape is more rolling passing groves of olive trees we climb out of a valley and as we crest the hilltop stunning views of Olvera open out before us. After riding through Olvera we head to Setenil de la Bodegas which was once a thriving economic centre on the ‘Travellers route’ between Sevilla and Ronda this picturesque white village is now famous for its cave houses and olive oil. Here we stop for lunch at, in my opinion, one of the best tapa’s bars in this area which is set beneath the overhanging rock face inside a cave. At this point we have ridden 44k with almost 1000m of elevation from here you can choose from either a 20k, 30k or 40k ride back to Montecorto.

After this climb we descend into Grazalema, another stunningly beautiful ‘pueblo blanco’ (white village) for well deserved ‘Coffee & Cakes’.
