Colleen Conners-Pace of Tahoe Peak Endurance, LLC and Race Director of Auburn Triathlon and Alana Levin of High Sierra Tri Club and Race Director of June Lake Triathlon have joined forces to bring to you their first High Altitude Triathlon Training Camp, sanctioned by USAT. This training camp is designed to be a “dress rehearsal” for the inaugural ironman at Lake Tahoe scheduled this fall. The camp will be fully supported, with all logistics handled. This camp is perfect for all those competing in the ironman race, especially for those from out of the area, those unfamiliar with the course and or the Tahoe area and for those unsure about training/racing at altitude.
We have put together a ‘STRESS-FREE’ weekend package so that all you need to do is show up with your wetsuit, bike and running shoes. We will take care of the rest. The idea behind this camp is for the athlete to practice their race day strategy/plan at high altitude and become familiar with the actual course. This will include pace, nutrition, clothing and gear. Racing at high altitude is very much different than racing at low altitude and it would behoove those to test the waters prior to race day.
The focus is to rehearse your race day strategy, by practicing it in a simulated race fashion on half the ironman course.
- awake the same time you plan to awake on race morning
- eat when and what you will eat race morning
- dress in same attire you will race day
- start the swim at ~ race day time
- experience swim starts in cold water and high altitude
- swim 2 loops like race day coming in and out of water
- practice your transitions
- ride and run on the actual course
- ride and run at your anticipated pace
- test your nutrition plan
- test your selected gear/equipment such as bike /wheels/tubes/bottle carriers/monitors/ etc
- experience “racing” at high altitude
