"Back to Basics" Triathlon Camp

Arrivals: Monday, March 4, 2019

Departures: Saturday, March 9, 2019

If you're training for your first triathlon or your 50th (or more!), our "Back to Basics" triathlon camp is for you! Enjoy 6 days and 5 nights at our training base in Guanacaste, Costa Rica where you can learn and practice proven triathlon skills, tactics and strategies while sampling the best of what's new in the sport.

ALL paces are accommodated, and beginners are encouraged to join us for a welcoming, non-intimidating triathlon-lovin' atmosphere! Our highly experienced coaches will analyze your swim, bike and run, teach transitions, advise on your bike fit, give you our best training tips, and train with you. This is a small group triathlon camp, with no more than 10-12 athletes, ensuring personal attention to address your individual needs. 

What Sets our Triathlon Training Camps Apart?


Swim in Calm, Warm Waters

Our training home is located at Las Catalinas, a stunning community nestled on a protected cove of the Pacific. With our accommodation just steps from the water, you'll enjoy lots of open water swims with our safety-certified SUP escorts nearby. The waters are warm and calm year round.

Awesome Bike Rides

There are training rides, and then there are training rides. Early morning rides in Costa Rica offer the opportunity to see more of this gorgeous country. Our pro "SAG" van is always there to escort our group and provide hydration, snacks and bike tools. Hop in if you need to take a break!

Culture and Cuisine

Why not combine your triathlon training with the cultural immersion and warm welcome you'll receive in Costa Rica? And the delicious meals, juices, coffee, local craft beer, sunsets, and "Pura Vida" laid back vibe are tough to beat!

Trail Running & Scenic Views

The soft and well-groomed trails of Las Catalinas provide every athlete and guest with a peaceful pathway for trail running, walking or hiking. There are miles and miles of mapped terrain and markers for you. All of our run training is done based on time, not distance; all paces are accommodated.

World-Class Coaches

The level of service at RaceQuest is off the charts. They work so hard to make sure everything is just right.
