Chester Triathlon Club Spring Camp once again returns to Mallorca and will also be based at the same hotel as 2018; HSM Lago Park Hotel in the town of Playas de Muro. The hotel is walking distance to the beach and also has easy access to a variety of excellent cycling routes Majorca has to offer. The camp is a perfect way to kick start your season with 7 full days training in the sun combined with a social side. The hotel has been recently refurbished so all rooms are modern studio rooms. The hotel food is also very accommodating for vegan and vegetarians and comes with excellent reviews from last year.

There will be plenty of rides and sessions for all abilities and people are welcome to do as much or as little or as they would like. The camp is suitable for people training for all distances from sprint to ironman and from novice to advanced levels. There will also be a Strava group for members on the camp to join as well as a private Facebook and WhattsApp group (if they wish) – so info can be easily shared on the build up and also whilst we are there.
