Team Cherwell Spring Training Camp Costa Blanca

Natural Ability are hosting, and invite Team Cherwell to join them on a 2017 warm weather spring triathlon/cycling training camp based in Calpe on the Costa Blanca, Spain.

The location is famously used by the majority of professional cycling teams for their spring training camps, so expect to be rubbing shoulders with your cycling heroes (in the hotel lift if not out on the roadJ). The hotel of choice is the wonderful (4 star) Diamate Beach Hotel with half board accommodation.

Ideally, we would like to see all the rooms filled with Team Cherwellians, however, the camp will be open to other athletes, so if you would like to bring along any friends or training partners that will be fine.

The camp is running from Thursday 20th April to Thursday 27th April 2017, so ideally timed for the summer race season, and of course the early season 70.3 and IM distance races. However this camp is not only for those taking on the longer distances, it will also cater for athletes of all abilities who are planning to race any distance or just wish to have a week’s cycling in the Spanish mountains. Although the week will be structured with a full week of activities these are not compulsory so you can ‘dip in or out’ as you choose.

The week will focus on cycling in the Spanish mountains but the hotel is only 200m from the beach where safe open water swim sessions will take place, and running from the hotel is also easy and safe, so all three disciplines will be catered for within the weekly program. Your lead coach for the week will be BTF Level 3 and Kaizen Coach Brian Butler who will be supported by a very experienced and knowledgeable coaching team. 

Can I bring my partner who would like to take a Spanish break without the sport? Of course, the hotel is in the very popular seaside resort of Calpe, close to the shops, bars and restaurants and the area is fantastic for sightseeing, there is a small discount for non-participating partners.


£390 – includes 7 nights Half Board + Transfer (with bike). Half board = Breakfast + Evening Meal + Table Wine. Includes access to hotel spa. 

Price based on 2 sharing (£150 single person supplement).

Please take a look at the attached document which includes the prices, rough timetable and a little more detail. If you are interested then a deposit of £100 will secure your place with the balance to be paid approx. 10 weeks prior to the camp.
