Spring Training Camp April 2019 – Playas De Muro

Friday April 12th to Saturday April 20th 2019

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.

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.
