Spring Training Camp

On an annual basis, Triple Threat hosts a weekend training camp for its members.  2017 training camp will be held at Falcon Trail Resort and is a great way to check out your skills before the start of the season. Training camp has active sessions for strength, bike & run with a potential polar bear swim for the brave. Guest speakers also make presentations on a variety of topics important for triathletes. The team weekend together lets our team members get to know one another better and a chance to socialize and form those team bonds.
