Why is our camp different than the rest?

You won't be a number in a big group. We are capping our camp entries at just 24 athletes.

With 3 coaches and additional support staff, you'll receive personal attention, on-course support, and individualized instruction. Yet, you will still get the benefit of group training and supportive community.

In addition to the daily training schedule, we will have hands-on practical clinics (including run form video), educational presentations, team meals, daily Q&A sessions (you control the topic!), and individual consults with the coaches.


Who can come to the camp?

Anyone! We welcome all athletes who are training for a 70.3 or 140.6 triathlon to join us for this camp.

  • You do not need to be a No Limits Endurance athlete or tri club member to participate in the training camp. We welcome EVERYONE!
  • You need only to want to train hard, learn much, and have fun! Our main rule: no egos - just sweat & smiles!
  • Before participating in the camp, you should be prepared to complete the durations listed in the camp schedule below.

Whether you are preparing for a 70.3 or a 140.6, the No Limits Endurance Coaching Training camp will make certain you are prepared for this course - or any other hilly and challenging course. We should know - the coaches have completed Lake Placid a combined total of 13 times!
