If you’re keen to improve your triathlon performance, consider taking your training to the next level with one of our triathlon training camps in Mallorca. This triathlon training paradise offers the perfect blend of climate, terrain, and top-notch facilities. Whether you’re an experienced triathlete or a beginner preparing for your first event, here’s why a triathlon camp with us in Mallorca is the perfect springboard for your training and racing season.

Perfect Climate for Early An Season Triathlon Training Camp

With more than 300 days of sunshine each year, the island provides ideal conditions for outdoor training throughout the early part of the year. Say goodbye to a harsh winter and unpredictable weather that can disrupt your training schedule back home. In Mallorca, you can enjoy mild temperatures and clear skies, allowing for consistent, uninterrupted training sessions. With only 3 days of rain during our 2024 Spring season we enjoyed riding in shorts and jerseys through March, April and May and even have guests relaxing around the pool in the sunshine post rides! Don’t forget your sunscreen!

Diverse and Scenic Triathlon Training Options

Mallorca’s varied landscape offers a unique training environment that caters to all triathlon disciplines. The island boasts:

  • Challenging Cycling Routes: From the flat, smooth roads along the coast to the demanding climbs of the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, which we like to take you to, Mallorca is a cyclist’s haven. Using our 15 plus years of experience riding the island, we take you off the main roads, through the lanes, on routes you would never use otherwise and show you the real Mallorca by bike. 
  • Scenic Running: Run along the beach, in the woods, or along picturesque, undulating inland paths. For runs straight off the bike, we do run you around the hotel, but like to get you out seeing the island by foot as well. 
  • Open Water Swimming: Crystal-clear waters and beautiful beaches provide the perfect setting for open water swim training. Experience the unique challenge and exhilaration of swimming in the Mediterranean Sea and practising your open water swim technique with qualified swim coaches on hand for all sessions.

Access to Fantastic Facilities

Mallorca is home to some of the best training facilities in Europe, and our hotel in the North of the island is a favourite with many top professional triathletes and cyclists alike. You might causally see Alberto Contador (Tour de France winner) in the bike garage, be getting into the swim lane as Mario Mola and Javier Gomez (both World Triathlon Champions) get out, or be in the restaurant with Non Stanford and Katie Zaferes (Olympic triathletes).  

For swim training, the onsite heated 25m laned swimming pool allows the coaching team to assess you during daily swim session and help you to correct and refine your swim technique and build endurance.

There is a fully equipped gym and studio room for pre and post training sessions, so get ready for one of our famous (well very popular) post bike ride stretching sessions! 

The fantastic bike garage with mechanic and bike shop on hand, along with the Challenge Tri Camp office – is the perfect place to come and hang out with us, meet up before rides, fill up water bottles and stuff your pockets with the free lunch packs provided.

Add to this the free spa facilities that include a hot and cold plunge pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi – perfect to relax in at the end of the day! 
Oh and let’s not forget the state of the art running track just a short ride away where we take you to improve your speed and run efficiency. 

Professional Coaching and Expert Guidance

A major benefit of attending a Challenge Tri Camp triathlon training camp in Mallorca is access to professional coaches who are super keen to help you understand and learn from your training on camp. With 20 plus years of coaching experience, and 15 years of coaching athletes of all abilities and experiences on our training camps, we can help you improve your triathlon skills and focus on your specific goals and areas for improvement. 

Triathlon camps are about improving your stamina and fitness but we have a strong belief in Technique Refinement. We want you to make the most of your time with us while on camp, let us help you to improve your swim, bike, and run techniques with hands-on guidance, including 1-1 ‘sit down’ time with a coach and swim video analysis.

And it not just a case of the coaches turning up at the start of each training session. We are based in the hotel with you, eat with you at meal times and are in our office, when not delivering training sessions, to answer any queries and support you throughout your whole camp experience. 
Plus we offer an evening seminar to go over the latest training trends and answer any questions about triathlon training and triathlon coaching.

Community and Camaraderie

This is a hugely overlooked part of attending a camp and over the years we have seen the benefits of bringing triathletes of all abilities together, creating new bonds and learning from each other.  Training with a group of like-minded athletes can be incredibly motivating. 
The camaraderie and support you’ll experience at one of our triathlon training camps can push you to new heights (trust us, we see it in our post camp WhatsApp groups). So book a training camp with us and share your journey with fellow triathletes, learn from their experiences, and build lasting friendships.

Focus and Dedication

Our triathlon training camps provide a structured environment where you can focus solely on your training. Free from the distractions of everyday life, you can dedicate yourself fully to your triathlon improvement and preparations for upcoming events. We keep you busy with a fully loaded camp training schedule, we find this intense, focused training approach often leads to significant improvements in a short period. You go home, fitter, faster and stronger but with lots to work on and improve upon. 

Nutritional Excellence

Well, we have a saying on camp…”everything is focused around fuelling, well eating.”  We know nutrition is the cornerstone of athletic performance, and our training camps emphasize this, with the schedule arranged around meal times!! Don’t worry you won’t go hungry!
The hotel restaurant is excellent and provides meals featuring fresh, local ingredients designed to meet the needs of triathletes and many, if not all, specific dietary requirements. They offer all the staples you would ever need plus a different ‘food theme’ each evening to add variety – just go easy on the local desserts, although fresh fruit is always available!
