TriAugusta Triathlon Club’s Ride for a Reason

Your one camp registration fee will get you access to all events. There will be separate registration sites for Gatorfest Augusta and Ride for a Reason if you do not want to participate in the training camp.

Camp Description
The camp will begin on Friday afternoon, August 16 at 2 pm. This session will begin at the half iron T1/T2 area. This session could be a river swim, a ride, a run or possibly all three so be ready. Details will be finalized in the coming months.
We had so much positive feedback and success that we have again partnered with Gatorfest Augusta and Ride for a Reason. These partnerships will provide you as realistic race conditions as possible by having in water divers and on water kayakers for the swim and attended aid stations along the bike route.
Saturday morning the Gatorfest Augusta benefiting the Savannah River Keeper will provide you a chance to swim the Savannah River at distances of 1.2 mile or 3.5 miles. The 1.2 mile swim option will be the half iron Augusta swim race route.
Saturday morning shortly following the swim the coaches and volunteers for Tri Coach Georgia will lead you on a run of the half iron Augusta run race route with your option being one or two laps of the run course. We will then gather to get valuable training, recovery and rehab information from our partners at Peak Rehabilitation, Fitness and Performance. Our coaches will also review with you the race strategies for the course as well as insider information about where to stay, park and spectate plus our favorite spots to dine and socialize with other athletes during the race weekend.
Sunday morning the Ride for a Reason benefiting the TriAugusta Triathlon Club will provide you a fully supported ride. The route has not yet been finalized and in the permitting process to make every effort that it will be the Ironman 70.3 Augusta bike race route.

The one camp fee gets you access to all these events.

We are excited to have you train with us again this year and we will be updating the camp details as specifics are finalized within the next few weeks.

Strategy
This is a race course preview so plan your weekend accordingly. Tri Coach Georgia recommends racing how you train, so even though there will be on course support these are open waters and roads with you performing at your own pace. Tri Coach Georgia coaches encourage attendees to provide their own on course nutrition for the bike and run segments in addition to our support. A water station will be available on the run course. The coaches recommend running with your hydration system and refilling it at the run station.

Miscellaneous Info
Expect the weekend training camp to be hot. 95+ temps and >90% humidity is the usual weather for late July in Augusta so begin your acclimatization now. Get to Augusta hydrated and make every effort to stay topped off so you can enjoy the training.
Discounted room rates are available at the Holiday Inn Express East on Broad Street and reservation information will be sent to you upon completion of your registration.
The details of the camp will be continually updated here. Also, follow Tri Coach Georgia on Facebook and Twitter to stay informed with updates that may have not made it to this event site.
