Back to homepage

Endurance Corner is excited to offer a four day training camp for athletes from August 24-27 in Tucson, Arizona; with a primary focus on the late season world championship events (70.3 Worlds and Kona). This camp will help athletes learn how to execute their upcoming race strategies through race-specific workout structure and warm weather conditions. The staff of coaches has extensive experience in training and racing successfully in the heat. This is the perfect opportunity for athletes racing Kona or another late season event to learn from the EC Team.

Coaches will include:

  • Marilyn Chychota: Head Coach and Ironman Champion
  • Sue Aquila: Ironman Age Group Champion and multiple-time Kona-qualifier
  • Justin Daerr: Ironman Champion and multiple-time Kona-qualifier

Registration fee is $699 and will include coaching, weekend training plans, dinner on Thursday and Saturday and a coaching presentation on Saturday night.
