I was due to go on my first triathlon training camp with Challenge Tri Camp in early 2019 and lost my father suddenly just before Christmas 2018. It threw out my training and hit me really hard. My wife and daughter were incredible in supporting me and I contacted Nick Dunn and his team to explain the situation to see if I could cancel or defer to 2020. Unfortunately travel insurance didn’t count in this situation because I hadn’t yet left the U.K. The airline, bike hire and car rental company were all amazing and given the specific reason for the trip, they all cancelled with a full refund even going outside of their normal terms. Sadly even though Challenge Tri Camp are in the human performance business they were not quite as sympathetic or understanding. After lots of push back and emails whilst I was also dealing with the loss, I’ve had nothing back at all. I’d paid nearly £1,000 in full and was offered £150 towards a 2020 camp or a 1 day training session in the U.K. They have refused to refund anything. I realise there are accommodation costs to cover that may or may not have been used by someone else but the total lack of understanding, no sympathy or understanding in a human performance business, in my opinion speaks volumes. I successfully got myself back on track later in the year and competed in a couple of triathlons in 2019 and I’ve booked elsewhere for a 2020 camp to work with a team that focus on everything about a person.read more

I was initiated to triathlon by Nick and his team. I will never forget that experience. Without them I don’t think I would have achieved my first Half Ironman race. 7 years later I am still at it so they must be doing something rightread more

I was pretty apprehensive about my first camp in 2018, particularly as I was recovering from injury and couldn't swim! But everyone was really welcoming, friendly, inclusive and encouraging - coaches and athletes alike. Loved every minute of it, went back in 2019, fully intending to return again in 2020.read more

Having ‘dabbled’ in sprint Triathlons for the last 3 years, with the support of my Tri club coaches and friends, I decided to enter the Cotswold 113. Attending this Challenge Tri Camp was part of my plan to see how far I could actually push myself. I have to say that it has been invaluable in my development both psychologically and physiologically. The coaches were really supportive throughout the week and they helped me to make some very important changes to my technique; I found the swim analysis particularly helpful and informative. I overcame feelings of significant fatigue to train hard again day after day and I now feel more confident in my ability to succeed. I definitely recommend this camp and this company. Thank you Team Challenge Tri Camp, I do hope I will do you proud in my 2019 race season.read more

My top reasons why i’ll be returning to a TriCamp 1. I was encouraged to physically and mentally push myself 10x harder than I would training alone 2. The hotel is absolutely PERFECT for sport lovers with its private equipped bike garage, 25m saline pool and free laundry 3. The coaches train elite athletes so I really felt the depth of their expertise. Plus their advice was tailored to each individual- nothing felt cookie-cutter 4. That endless buffet.....dreamy! 5. Each training session is imaginative, fun, challenging and you get to really drink-in Mallorca 6. If you rent a bike it’s hanging serviced and ready in the garage- the key is waiting at reception 7. There’s rollers in the gym, icebaths and saunas in the spa and ice for injuries 8. The people- 14 strangers to 14 friends in a week Thank you Brent, Helen, Mark and Bernat- you really gave 100%read more

I had an amazing week with challenge Tri Camp in Mallorca. I have improved myself a lot in cycling. Coaches were always next to us, they are all very nice and they never leave you behind:-) . We trained the 3 sports: swimming (even with recorded video to correct the technic) , with wetsuit in the pool and in open water. Cycling in different routes (hills, time trial,...), running techniques (stairs, trail,...), core lessons... , a very completed triathlon week adapt to all levels. The coaches are wonderful!! Thanks to Mark, Bernat, Brent and Helen for your advices and professionalism !! All the triathletes were also great, we spent a very good time all together and I Look forward to seeing you soon in challenge tri camp!!take care, Best regards, Victoriaread more

I have been on three camps now and have had coaching from Nick. I was apprehensive about my first camp as I was unsure of whether I would be good enough but I need not have worried as all abilities are catered for. The coaching and feedback are brilliant and I have got so much faster from taking it all on board! Facilities, hotel and food are all great and I have spent a week with a lovely bunch of like minded people each time. I'm already booked on for 2019 and am looking forward to it!read more

We have just booked Challenge Tri Camp for the third year running. What was a birthday treat has now become a kickstart to our triathlon season. So what is making us come back year on year, well when you love to swim, bike, run you get to do that every day! Making friends with other crazy people who like to do the same! Challenge Tri Camp caters for all levels of abilities from complete novices to age groupers. The coaching team are friendly and approachable. They have a wealth of triathlon knowledge and there is always something new to learn. The hotel, location and facilities are great. It’s amazing how fast a week can fly by, you come home absolutely shattered but motivated for the season ahead.read more

Challenge Tri camp was my first experience of a triathlon training camp and I can honestly say I couldn’t have had a better experience. The coaches are professional welcoming and really take the time to get to know your needs and plan accordingly. I enjoyed my first week so much I booked a second week and plan to go back next year. I learnt a lot and improved in all three disciplines and can say the camp definitely contributed to my improved performance this season. Special thanks to Nick who spent time in the sea giving me one to one coaching to help me get over my fear of open water and also Jacqui who helped me get more confident in group bike riding in Mallorca and Kat who beasts me on a daily basis 😁read more
