Athlete requirements

For this camp we generally require athletes to have completed an ironman in under 13.5hrs (or show similar ability over shorter distance races). However if you do not meet this requirement but are keen to come email us reasons why you would like to be considered. If you are slower than 13.5hrs and commited to being in good shape for the camp please do get in touch and we can work something out. It's is not that we are trying to be elite but we just need to ensure our support crew can offer assistance to all members of the camp. If we get too strung out on the bike that becomes really hard
