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.

Nick, Brent, Helen and Michael were all superstars on camp earlier this year. They always make time for you and encourage you - there endless enthusiasm is astounding and they know what they are talking about. I love coming back as it really is like meeting up with old friends

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.

After attending the improvers camp at Mallorca, I can highly recommend a Challenge Tri training camp. The jam-packed week was well structured which gave great training to everyone in the group. The friendly coaches were helpful and encouraging making sure everyone had tough but enjoyable sessions. Cycling on the island was amazing, the smooth roads through the scenic countryside and up the fantastic climbs made the kilometres fly by. This was my first training camp experience and it surpassed all of my expectations. I look forward to going back!

Exceeded all my expectations! Never a dull day. Wonderful, knowledgeable coaches who were never too busy to assist, help or advise...and what a great bunch of fellow athletes, who arrived as strangers but left as firm friends.

I had a brilliant week at Challenge Tri Camp! This was my first sports camp and I had been nervous that I would be surrounded by semi professional athletes but the group was a real mix, and the team of coaches catered brilliantly for every level of ability so no one was left feeling like they were holding anyone back or that they wouldn't get a good enough work out. If you are one of the serious triathletes, you will have a brilliant week of training; the opportunity to train all day every day with a professional team of coaches along side you. The coaches offer top class training and advice in all three disciplines, I ended the week feeling more confident in my own ability than ever before. The camp gave me the I train a lot in my day to day life and absolutely loved having the opportunity to get involved with every activity on offer during the camp, but it was always fine for people to sit out of activities if they needed a rest day or a couple of hours to themself. I have since signed up to a middle distance triathlon, bought a new bike and a new wetsuit....the camp has well and truly given me the triathlon bug!

First class bunch of coaches and 'competitors' last week on Challenge Tri Camp in Mallorca. Just the kick start I needed before my next 3 triathlons in FL in the coming weeks. Big thanks to Helen,Brent,Nick and Simon who were all faultless. Hotel, facilities and food second to none for a Tri-training week. Anyone thinking of giving it a go, don't hesitate. Sign up, it's all good.

Brilliant week of training for husband and me. The hotel and facilities are really nice and the food lovely. Nick, Brent, Helen, Simon and Bernarde are excellent coaches, who really worked hard to ensure that every one had the best week possible. The weather was not great on a couple of days, but they managed to adjust the schedule and ensure that everyone still had a great time. I now have a lot more confidence in bike handling and my husband even joined in the swim sessions, despite having no previous swim experience and initially not wanting to even participate in the swims. We would both highly recommend Challenge Tri Camp and we hope to be able to return again soon.

This was my first triathlon camp and what an incredible week it was. The coaches are brilliant and prepare a carefully balanced act of some tough training and a lot of fun (I was travelling by myself and immediately felt part of the group). Before I arrived the longest I had cycled was 40km but found myself doing three times this distance, inspired and motivated by the coaches, group and incredible views. Thank you for a fantastic week. I will be back!

6/5 week! I really enjoyed the good spirit and training tips. Training was enough challenging and I was super motivated to train in advanced company. Rides were organized safely for 1st time group riders too. Super coaches! Hotel Viva was perfect base for triathlon-training!

Absolutely brilliant week with Challenge Tri Camp! They looked after everyone with great care, no matter what your fitness level or ability. All the coaches encouraged and supported you and made sure you got to the top of all the hills and back down again. Great set-up at the hotel too. I had thought this was probably a one-off holiday but I will definitely be going back. It’s also given me a kick start to get back to cycling. Cracking week in a beautiful part of the world with lovely people - couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

Wonderful week! I'm a slow (and often nervous) cyclist but the coaches were all unstintingly understanding, encouraging & supportive. Like Stuart this was my first ride of 100+ km & the coaches were with us all the way. Really friendly, well set up and positive. Will definitely be coming back! :-)

What a week I had with the help of the fanatic coaches during the week. I have now managed to swim 1K first time ever along with my first ever mountain ride starting going by going up Coll de Femenia then on up to Lluc, Two days later I can now say that I have rode over 100km and have been around a velodrome. At the end of the week I did my first Triathlon (non competitive) all be it a small one. They have also been understanding and very helpful with my anxiety issues that holds me back from doing things like this. With out the support for these guys and girls I would not have done any of these.

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 which began in running, achieving relay medals at regional and national level, specialising in cross country and fell running. “After being inspired by the UK Ironman I took up triathlon and loved it so much I decided to make triathlon a career. I train, race and 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 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.
