Augusta 70.3 Training Camp
Join athletes from around the country for a weekend of training for the Intermedix IRONMAN 70.3 Augusta from August 8th – 10th.
The TriCoachGeorgia.com Augusta half iron training camp is an intensive on-course training weekend. TriCoachGeorgia coaches, all of whom are familiar with the course, will be providing tips, insights, local knowledge and on course training advice to prepare you for the weekend camp as well as focus your race prep to specific nuances of racing this course. Peak Rehabilitation, Fitness and Performance Lab and their Physical Therapists will also provide lectures on topics ranging from lab testing for metabolic efficiency, VO2 max and lactate testing, to injury prevention and rehabilitation.
The camp will begin with an optional pre-camp training session on Friday at 3 pm with a river swim, a ride and/or a run – specific details will be finalized soon.
The official camp will begin at Peak Rehabilitation and Performance Saturday morning, August 9that 7:30 am with a light breakfast and some short lectures on course tips, tricks and local knowledge of the race venue as well as for venues similar to the terrain of Augusta. Participants will then move to the half iron T1/T2 area and begin with a kayak/canoe supported river swim followed by a run on the actual course. There will be an optional river recovery swim after everyone completes the run portion. Saturday evening will include a social hour and dinner. On Sunday, August 10th the bike ride portion of the 70.3 course will take place and the camp officially ends at the conclusion of the bike ride.
