Why do professional and elite athletes travel to the small city of Clermont (22 miles West of Orlando) to train?
Because Clermont offers year-round triathlon training with ideal swimming, cycling and running venues.
Break out of your winter training routine and let us spoil you with an unforgettable 4.5 day camp experience in warm and sunny Clermont, Florida. Our 4th annual Clermont camp will offer full SAG support, all-day access to two experienced triathlon coaches, well-mapped training routes, guidelines for sport nutrition for every workout, outdoor long course pool and open water swimming, rolling hill bike course, clay trail running, skill focused workouts, a running clinic with Dr. Stephen Black and an Olympic distance triathlon race.
We invite you to take advantage of this opportunity to leave your normal stressors of life behind you as you train, eat, relax, sleep and have a lot of fun at the 2017 Trimarni Clermont all-level training camp.
The Team House
Socialize, eat, relax and connect with your fellow campers in this unique duplex property. Campers will stay in one of the two identical units that cater to groups and sports teams who are competing or training in Clermont. The house sits directly across the street from a great paddle board and fishing hole on Crystal Lake. Just 4 easy walking blocks from downtown Clermont; and 5 blocks from the pristine Clermont chain of lakes and the newly constructed Central Florida bike trail. Campers can run and bike right from the house doorsteps and walk to the Olympic distance race start!

When should I plan to arrive/depart?
We suggest to book your travel so that you arrive by late afternoon/early evening on Wednesday March 15th, 2017. We suggest to depart on Sunday late afternoon (March 19th) or Monday morning (March 20th). The team house is booked March 15th-March 20th. Check-in is 4pm on the 15th and check-out is 10am on March 20th.
Are meals included in my camp payment?
Campers will provide and share groceries in the team house. For our past camps, one person was the designated grocery "buyer" and then the total costs were divided among those staying in the house. Seeing that our campers eat similar snacks/meals, sharing food cuts down on the cost of food and makes eating time a much more fun experience. Typically, dinner is the "big" meal of the day due to the jammed-packed training schedule.
A local grocery store (Publix) is less than 10 minutes away.
Do you cater to dietary restrictions?
Absolutely. Just let us know your food allergies/intolerances and we will be sure to find you a replacement option for our team pizza dinner and for any snacks that are provided during workouts.
How should I get my bike to camp?
If you are not planning to drive with your bike, we suggest to either fly with your bike or use Bike Flights to ship your bike. If you are considering using Bike Flights, please contact us after you reserve your spot at camp for more details.
If you are flying with your bike (or shipping your bike), you do not need to bring your bike pump as we will have plenty available from those who are driving.
Do I need to bring race gear?
Yes. You will need to bring everything that you typically bring to a race (ex. race belt, chip strap, race clothing, race shoes, etc.). If you flying to camp, you only need to bring one set of wheels and one helmet (you can choose between training and racing wheels/helmet). Please bring your primary "race" bike to camp.
I'm nervous about racing on the last day of camp!
Don't be! Over the past two years, we have had all of our campers start and finish the Olympic distance triathlon on the last day of camp. And, we have even had athletes place on the podium and experience personal best times! We are providing you a low stress way of "racing" with absolutely no pressure. You will be surrounded by your fellow campers on race day, who are also carrying around residual fatigue from the 3 1/2 previous days of training, so you will be in great company. The race environment allows you to go through the motions of racing before your next big race of the season and to practice the skills and tips that you learned throughout camp. Plus, we promise that you will have so much fun racing with your fellow campers as you will have tons of support on the course. Talk about a memorable way to finish your training camp!
What if I get injured before the camp but I’ve already registered?
Please review our cancellation policy ahead of time in the case of an injury. If you still plan on attending camp with a recent injury, we will do our best to modify workouts so that you can get the most out of your camp experience. We will not let you feel excluded.
What if I am not fit enough for this camp?
All workouts will be catered to your fitness level. This is an all-level triathlon camp.
I am not a Trimarni coaching athlete, can I still attend?
Absolutely! We would love to have you at camp.
