This weekend is specifically targeted towards the more experienced Ironman/Long course athlete and will incorporate high volume training. It is not for the novice triathlete. If this is something you don't normally do during a weekend then it is strongly suggested you don't attend.  I would recommend athletes who are consistently doing sub 10.00hrs for men and sub 11.00hrs for women to attend. 

There will be limited places for this unique training experience and is sure to fill up quickly. You will leave this weekend having learnt a great deal about Ironman training.
