Lake Placid Training Camp

Lake Placid Triathlon Training Camp

Experience the Ironman Lake Placid course during our 2-day or 4-day Lake Placid triathlon training camp to be held June 6-9, 2024.

Lake Placid offers some of the most iconic and challenging training for triathletes. Our training camp is excellent for:

✅ Race-specific training for Ironman Lake Placid 140.6 – all abilities are welcome.

✅ Preparation for other hilly triathlon courses in mid to late summer or early fall, such as IRONMAN Mont Tremblant, IRONMAN Canada, IRONMAN Wisconsin, and IRONMAN 70.3 Louisville (to name a few!).

✅ Improving your overall knowledge and ability in triathlon – we work closely with each athlete throughout the weekend.

✅ Building community and camaraderie.

Our Lake Placid Triathlon Training Camp will help you achieve your big dreams, with supported workouts, educational clinics, and small group-based instruction.

We promise an experience as epic as your surroundings!
