Triathlon Training Camp

Ocean Elements has partnered with Croyde Ocean Triathlon to bring you Triathlon training camps at the Surf Hotel, Vassiliki, on the Greek island of Lefkada. Whether you’re preparing for your first Triathlon, swimming in the Ocean for the first time, looking to progress your efficiency, develop your skills or just fancy some warm weather training fun - we offer the highest standards of tuition from British Triathlon Federation instructors. - Meet the coaches

New to Triathlon, or an old hand?

We provide training and instruction for the swim, bike, run and transition phases throughout your stay and cater for beginners*, intermediate and experienced athletes alike. Our approach is very flexible, allowing guests to participate in as many of the programmed sessions as they choose, no sessions are mandatory and all sessions cater for different levels of fitness and ability. Alternatively, non-participating partners, friends and family members are also welcome to come and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere at the Surf Hotel. All guests will be able to enjoy the many other free activities of the Surf Hotel Club such as windsurfing, sailing, paddle sports, fitness and stretch and relax classes - and of course direct access to the beach!

*Athletes must be able to swim a minimum of 200m unassisted front crawl prior to arrival.

What's it all about

Our May camp is a technique and training camp. It includes swim, bike and run technique sessions with video coaching, drill work, longer endurance sessions plus mobility and strength sessions, all to help you avoid injury and have the best possible season. In addition, you will receive transition training and a one-on-one coaching session to help develop technique.

We will cater for novices to race hardened athletes, the young to the more mature person and will provide plenty of opportunity for the speed machines and mountain goats to stretch their legs and elevate their heart rate: It is also an outstanding opportunity to gain confidence in the ocean in a safe, controlled and stunning location.

Bikes

Our bikes are free to use and there will be a qualified mechanic available if you would prefer to bring your own bike (spares will not be routinely kept in stock so bring spares should you feel it necessary).

You may bring your own bike with you (on the plane) for a carriage charge of £38. Our mechanic can help you build up your bike on arrival and we’d recommend you bring it out in a suitable bike carry-case.

Paddleboards, sailing and windsurf kit

The Surf hotel is stocked full of sailing dinghies, windsurf boards, paddleboards and kayaks which will be free for you to use all week and should make for a nice respite from your Tri-training. Paddleboards make for a great core workout and perfect for exploring the local bay, so grab one from our racks whenever you feel the urge.
