Endurance Training Camp
Location: Greenville, SC
Type of camp: Endurance Triathlon camp
Length of camp: 4.5 days
Dates: August 21st-25th 2019
Greenville, SC will capture your heart. It's hard to describe our beautiful Greenville in a few words. For athletes, Greenville is the perfect place to be active. We have the perfect triathlon training playground, especially when it comes to cycling.
We can't wait for you to see why we love training in Greenville, SC.
The focus of this endurance camp is to add a little spice of intensity into your endurance training. With August being late in your season, we want to add some fun to your training by immersing you in a group training environment. By training with others, you’ll bring out the best in yourself. Ideally, this camp will work great with a late season half or full Ironman. Athletes who attend our camp should be extremely fit, healthy and strong, with good bike handling skills for climbing and descending.
With an endurance theme to this late-summer camp, expect to train a lot and to learn a lot. We will combine training stress with education to ensure you are training smart and absorbing stress properly as you gear up for your late season endurance event(s). This camp will give you a good amount of training to feel fit and ready for your upcoming event and we will raise your confidence as we focus on skills, technique, form, pacing, sport nutrition and mental strength. We will gently stretch your comfort zone in this camp as you become a more skillful endurance triathlete.
Our camp offers full SAG support, all-day access to three experienced triathlon coaches, well-mapped training routes, guidelines for sport nutrition for every workout, indoor pool and open water lake swimming, hilly bike courses (rollers and mountains), hill and trail running and lots of time on your bike.
We invite you to take advantage of this group training environment where you will feel challenged and capable. Leave your normal stressors of life behind you as you train, eat, relax, sleep and have a lot of fun at the 2019 Trimarni Greenville endurance camp.
You will need at least 5 days to recover from this camp, so be sure to plan accordingly with your racing schedule.
If you are not sure if this camp is right for you, send us an email.

When should I plan to arrive/depart?
We suggest to book your travel so that you arrive by late afternoon on Wednesday August 21st, 2019. We suggest to depart on Sunday late evening (August 25th) or Monday morning August 26th. The team house is booked August 21st - August 25th.
Check-in is at 4pm on the 21st and check-out is 10am on the 26th.
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.
The local grocery store (Publix) is less than 10 minutes away. There is also a Super Wal-Mart close by and a Farmers Market (Tomato Vine).
There are several restaurants in downtown Traveler’s Rest.
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 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.
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.
Do I need to bring a wetsuit?
Nope. The lake water will be warm for our open water swim.
I'm nervous about your terrain, I heard it is hilly!
Yes, our terrain is challenging, specifically for cycling. If our terrain worries you, this camp may not be ideal for you.
We will never put our athletes on terrain that is unsafe and we select routes that will cater to all athletes at our camp.
What's the difference between the Advanced Endurance camp and the Endurance camp?
Both camps are geared for triathletes and we expect you to bring great fitness to camp. However, the training load at the advanced endurance camp is significantly greater than our endurance camp. We have aligned our camps to help athletes prepare for an early season Ironman (Advanced Endurance camp) and a late season endurance event (Endurance camp). While it is ok if you are not a strong swimmer or runner, both camps are very cycling focused. At our advanced endurance camp, we expect you to be able to ride for 4+ hours on very hill terrain and to be able to bounce back quickly from longer/intense training sessions. We have strategically placed this camp near the end of the summer so that you can accumulate a great amount of training throughout the summer and arrive fit and strong. We hope that the endurance camp boosts your fitness and confidence before your late season half or full distance Ironman. This camp will be challenging but we will also focus on skills and race tactics. Reach out to us to see if the endurance camp is the right fit.
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. We will treat injuries and sicknesses on a case by case basis in the case of a full refund. We do not advise that you come to this camp with an injury or if you are just getting over an injury or sickness. We need you to arrive to this camp feeling healthy, rested and fit.
Contact us in the case of an injury to discuss another camp/training experience with Trimarni.
I am not a Trimarni coaching athlete, can I still attend?
Absolutely! We would love to have you at camp if you feel this camp is the right fit for you.
