Great crew of coaches, great and diverse athlete groups, great sports hotel with great buffet (incl. vegan options ;) ) on paradise island Mallorca. The perfect mix for fantastic and fun training camps - I have been on 3 so far and will continue to do so.

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!

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.

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 😁

I’ve signed up for my 4th camp for 2019 and am looking forward to it already. Each has been better than the last All the sessions are tailored to individuals and everyone can go at the right pace for them whilst building fitness and improving techniques. It’s a great way to start the season and build your fitness. The hotel and accommodation is excellent too. Highly recommended.

I’ve done Triathlon and high level sport for years. I like starting my season with a TriCamp as the mix of high level coaching and other like minded athletes gives me a great boost. The social element make it a great mix 👍🏻

For anyone looking to improve across all disciplines, I thoroughly recommend their camps and clinics. I have been on a few over the years and not only are they enjoyable and you meet like minded people, the coaching is superb. I have made significant improvements across all disciplines and actually have today booked the next one day clinic in January. There is always room for improvement !

What a great week. Superbly organised and coached with sessions designed to feel like I had really worked hard and pushed myself but with just enough left in the tank to do more. All done with a sense of humour and great team spirit. As someone returning to triathlon after many years the team have inspired me to get back into the sport and enjoy it. Hotel and facilities also great.

I went to swim camp this year and have booked again for next year. Hotel, food, bike garage, pool and rooms all high standard. I like to train a lot and the days were full. 2 coached swims and a bike ride most days plus a few runs and some stretching and core in the mix as well., the good thing is, if you want more free time, you can miss sessions without judgement. The quality of coaching was excellent.As a mediocre swimmer I went to camp with two goals, a step change in my swim times and to overcome my fear of the sea. Both goals achieved. On the last sea swim I did a full 70.3 distance swim and my pool 400m time improved by 21 seconds in the week and a further 14 seconds within a month of getting home and putting all I had learned into practice. My stroke was unrecognisable from the video at the start of the camp. I sat with the coach and made sure I wrote down all the coaching points for my particular stroke issues...he was very patient! But it meant I went home with an armoury of drills to practice. I also came away much more confident at group riding and with some fabulous new friends to follow on Strava Highly recommended whether you are looking for a holiday with the added bonus of coached sessions, or as in my case some serious training and coaching in the sunshine or somewhere in between...All are catered for. I loved it. A fabulous fun break doing all the things I love doing with a great set of people

I did the Middle distance camp in April. I am new to triathlons and being my first camp I was initially a bit nervous to go on my own and about the level required but it was all dispelled in the first 24hrs! The camp is organised to cover different abilities and the coaches and fellow athletes were awesome. I came away with great advice and new friends. I would highly recommend the camps and already planning on booking again next year!

I’ve been going to Challenge Tri Camp for several years now, sometimes alone, sometimes with friends or my partner; no matter what, I’ve always had a fantastic experience. Tri Camp coaches have a unique ability to make everyone feel like they are a champion. I keep coming back to Tri Camp because other ones I’ve tried are only geared to a certain age group and a certain level. At Tri Camp, you train with your level, no one is too slow, or too fast, and at meals you all share the laughs, trials and tribulations of training. The end of camp competition is fantastic: each triathlete EACH ONE is given a personalised triathlon - the distances are matched to you and your level. That’s how well the coaches get to know you. Look out for Challenge Tri Camp gear at races and don’t hesitate to talk to the triathlete, I’m sure they’ll be more than happy to talk about Tri Camp. That’s just how great it is.

I’ve done 2 camps. Both were excellent with superb coaches and a great hotel. Groups cover a real wide range of abilities and everyone is catered for. I’ve travelled alone on both occasions and have met people who will be lifelong friends. We’ve already met up back home to train, Race and socialise and are looking forward to the reunion of the full team at the relays in August �

I did the early camp in Feb this year. A great bunch of like-minded people from beginner to elite. No need to worry about ability level; the coaches will make sure you're in the right group. Plenty of mixed-ability sessions as well. Brent and Nick head up a friendly, knowledgeable and experienced team and the coaches are always happy to provide advice and know how to help you hit your targets.

Second year running at Tricamp! Didn't think I could top such a fantastic week last year but this year at a different venue was even better! All coaching was first class and the triathlon event at the end of the week was a real highlight. The coaches were all so professional and the athletes attending the week, though of different abilities, were all catered for! Will definitely be booking another week next year!

I first started my journey with Nick and the team in 2011/12 during a pre Mallorca 70.3 training camp, their support, knowledge and guidance has been such a valuable source of learning for me as an athlete. Nick is now my coach and I have no hesitation in recommending the Challenge Tri Camp Team.

MEET THE COACHES

Brent Perkins
Joint Head Coach
Challenge Tri Camp

I began my sporting career as a runner before moving into triathlon, and haven’t looked back since. I have competed in races of all distances all over the world including multiple Ironmen and 70.3s I also hold age group titles and have raced at both ITU World and ETU European level. I have previously coached and delivered training camps for Team GB Age Group triathletes working towards team selection as well as athletes looking to achieve more varied goals, such as becoming a first time Ironman finisher. I have a natural empathy with Age Group athletes who are trying to balance the demands of our sport with a hectic work lifestyle and with limited amounts of time to train. Getting results is a key Challenge Tri Camp coaching principle so I work very closely with my athletes to prepare for the race. As a qualified coach, and a British Triathlon Team Manager, as well as a Certified Training Peaks Coach, I draw on lessons learnt and my experiences over two decades in running, multi-sports, cycling and swimming to help guide my athletes to achieving personal Swim, Bike, Run and Triathlon goals. I am a strong believer in communication with my athletes, so I do not limit contact. I look forward to working with you.

Nick Dunn
Joint Head Coach 
Challenge Tri Camp

After winning my second age group World Championship Gold medal in 2013 I knew I wanted to finish my racing days on a high and focus on coaching. I knew it was time as I was more interested in helping others than my own sessions towards the end of my training days and I have not looked back since. I get more from coaching and seeing others achieving their goals than I did when racing! I have been fortunate enough to have worked with some great people from complete beginners to professionals. I have helped guide people to their first events as well as recently in 2016 coaching two athletes to Age Group World Champion status. As well as coaching on Challenge Tri Camps triathlon training camps, I offer coaching on a one to one basis and online working closely with my athletes to make sure they have a bespoke programme. All of my bespoke coaching programmes are designed to the Challenge Tri Camp principles of coaching. These programmes although I plan them are a joint effort between me and the athlete and my job is to ensure it works for them, is realistic but also achievable and fun.  

Kat Berry
Lead Coach
Challenge Tri Camp
With a background in competitive swimming I took up triathlon after ‘retiring’ from swimming, quickly found a new passion and the move into coaching was a natural progression. I have British Triathlon Federation, IronMan and level 3 PT qualifications, and I am studying for a post-grad diploma in sports nutrition. I have competed at GB age group level for many years,  I have won medals at World and European Championships, on top of working full time, so. As a result I fit my plans to each individual’s available time, goals and circumstance, using the Challenge Tri Camp coaching process. I’ve been through it all myself wondering how to fit in training for 3 sports, working out what kit to buy when there are 10 makes of each item you want, the nerves before race day, the feeling of being like a fish out of water in transition the first time and the great feeling you get crossing the finish line. I have a great passion for helping people improve, set aspirational goals and achieve them.

Michael Hallas
Lead Coach
Challenge Tri Camp
Michael….has a lifelong passion for sport and is our running expert, achieving relay medals at regional and national level, specialising in cross country and fell running. In recent years he has taken his passion to the extreme, running ultra marathons upwards of 50 miles as well as long course triathlon. “After being inspired by the UK Ironman I took up triathlon and it quickly took over my life. I coach full-time and compete at all distances including Ironman all over the world. Being part of the Challenge Tri Camp Family and working alongside expert coaches in Mallorca and in the UK has allowed my own knowledge to grow. I love passing on this expertise to my athletes who include world mountain racers, ITU and ETU age group triathletes and duathletes. Combining my level 3 status as a personal trainer with my BTF triathlon coaching and Training Peaks qualifications gives me an added advantage in the strength and conditioning aspect of endurance sport which is becoming more and more crucial at the top level of performance.
I take great pride in sharing my athletes successes and hope to help you achieve whatever goals you have.

 

Jacqui Phillips
Lead Coach
Challenge Tri Camp
I started my adult sporting life as a competitive cyclist, who also loved to run, so when looking for a new challenge, triathlon seemed the obvious next step. I soon realised I absolutely loved it and have never looked back. I now have 10 years of training and racing experience, with the last 5 years as a qualified triathlon coach. I have raced at all distance from Sprint to 70.3 and since 2010 I have been a regular member of the GB Age Group team, winning numerous European and World championship medals. During this time, I have been coached by Challenge Tricamp who have helped me reach my goals and now I enjoy being able to help others reach their very best potential with Challenge Tricamp Coaching. As part of Challenge Tricamp Coaching I have developed my skills as part of an expert team, both on a one-to-one basis in the UK and at the Challenge Tricamp Mallorca training camps. Having raced and trained whilst working and raising my family, I understand how hard it can be to fit quality training into a busy lifestyle. I always work closely with my athletes to create challenging coaching plans that really work for them, and get great satisfaction from seeing their hard work turning into success.

Mark Redwood
Lead Coach
Challenge Tri Camp
I have a lifelong love of triathlon and have been racing since the early 1980’s when my dad got me interested. I started at sprint distance, gaining my first GB kit as an elite junior in Manchester 1993. I’ve raced championships at all distances, highlights being the World 70.3 and Kona Championships. I have also spent a number of years guiding blind triathlete Tim Reddish and helped him achieve 2 World Championship wins. With over 20 years of experience racing triathlon, I have seen our sport grow and evolve. I have extended my coaching knowledge working alongside Challenge Tricamp Coaches, learning and understanding the coaching method and ethos that is Challenge Tricamp Coaching. I now work full time within the triathlon sector coaching exclusively for Challenge Tricamp. I am also an expert fully trained bike fitter and Cytech bike technician. I really find it rewarding to pass on my triathlon knowledge, and to see people achieve their goals and do events they might not have thought possible. As a Challenge Tricamp Coach, I am honest, approachable and focused on helping you get the best from yourself, I want you to enjoy your training and development process as well as the satisfaction of crossing the finish line on race day.
