      Sunday

      Monday

      • We will be running the Bolder Boulder 10k Fun run together as a group.¬† It is an amazing and fun race. We will then relax the rest of the day, or people can start to head home
      • As a reference, LL and I completed the 10k in 2 hours, 15 minutes last year.¬† It is about having fun, not going for a best time.

       

      CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THE 10K

      When you are registering, make sure you register EXACTLY AS THE IMAGE BELOW STATES. There are 60,000 runners in this event and they line you up in corals with a specific bib number over the course of 4 hours. So in order for all of us to enjoy this together, you need to register the same way most of us already have.  If you want to "run" the 10k and get a time, and then come back and run again nice and fun with us, you are welcome to do so.  

      Tuesday

      • A group of us are going to ride to the top of Mt. Evans Mountain. 14,000 feet up to the top.¬† It is never steep, it is just long, but amazing. I recommend a road bike.
      • We will leave Matt's house at 7 AM and drive to Idaho Springs where we will park our cars behind Beaujos Pizza to start the ride from 7,000 feet.
      • We will have a sag car for jackets, gloves, and nutrition.
      • Plan on at least 5-6 hours of riding.
      • After the ride, we will eat pizza at Beaujos
      • If you are flying home Tuesday, do not fly before 5:00 PM

      =================== 

      We are trying to provide these camps to our BASE team members basically free of charge, but in doing so we have to prevent everyone signing up and canceling at the last minute. Hence the reason for a small fee, but you will receive product upon arrival. We need to provide accurate numbers to the people who are helping us with the camps. If you register and at the last minute you cannot attend, you will NOT receive a refund on your payment or the product as we will have had to use the money to secure non refundable lane space in the pools.

      This camp will be a bigger mileage camp which will build on strength. It will not be technique based. We will never do anything harder than a Zone 2 effort. Except for some sprints in the pool. We will do a LOT of climbing in the Rocky Mountains, plus we will learn strength exercises from Erin Carson at Rally Fitness. Erin is Rinny, Tim O'donnel, and many other professional Triathletes strength coach. She will teach you what you can do at your house to build proper endurance Triathlon leg strength.

      We will start & Stop all of our rides and runs in Boulder at HOME BASE

      We highly recommend groups sharing houses together.

      Campers should arrive Wednesday at any time so they are prepared to go Thursday morning at 7 AM. We will do team dinners every night.

      The focus of the camp is to train hard in the morning, have fun in the afternoon / evening and get to know other people.

      We have partnered with Rally Sport and Fitness in Boulder. We will probably have a catered dinner / nutrition talk at the gym on Thursday night. Friday and Saturday dinners will be catered at my HOME BASE. We will have everyone pitch in like $10 - $15 / dinner.
