You’ve trained months and months indoors to prepare for your big day. March is the perfect time to get out in the warm sunshine and log some serious miles for ????, ???? and ????.


This camp is perfect for athletes competing at IM Texas, IM St. George and IM Tulsa!


Note: 2020 Ironman® St George is a Key Race for Team Endurance Nation which means we will have many athletes competing and Coach Patrick will be on site for the race to support everyone.

The elevation of the Ironman® St George Bike Course demands you show up ready — and we can help! 

Ironman St George Bike Course

“Just wanted to thank you for an awesome race camp! It was my first real immersion into EN and it did not disappoint. I’ve learned more from EN and camp in the past few months than I have in years of just trying to figure out IM training and racing. Love it! Thanks for all the course scouting, all the great classroom and training sessions, and your good humor.”

140.6 miles is too big of a problem for anyone to solve with fitness alone.

Triathlons of any distance aren’t about racing to prove your fitness. A successful race is created by how you choose to drive that fitness vehicle around the course.

Endurance Nation has 1,000+ long course triathlon finishers per year — every year since 2010. These athletes include podium finishers, Kona qualifiers, and every day “average” triathletes setting massive personal bests.

We have developed a host of proven race execution processes and strategies covering everything from racing with power, pace, heart rate, race day nutrition and hydration, bike setup, high return on investment aerodynamic improvement opportunities, faster and more efficient transitions, and much, much more.

2013 Wisconsin Training Camp

Wisconsin training camp about to set off on Sunday run of the course.

The intent of our Long Course Race Execution Camp is to teach you our methods live in a setting where you can put the lessons to the test. We then provide separate breakout sessions to drill down these processes to the specifics of other Ironman courses depending on what you might be racing this season.

This is a training camp, where athletes will put in significant training hours with plenty of solo time. If you are looking for 1:1 time with a coach, this is not the camp for you.
