Food:

 We will have breakfast and lunch food available for you to self serve. and dinners are catered in so that the prep on our side is minimal - basically, it's "Heat and Eat".

Fun:

 We realize that not everyone is doing a 140.6 or a 70.3 Ironman. Some of you are coming to support a friend or loved one. Some are coming to ride your bikes or just coming to have fun at a great price. There is a lot to do including hiking, swimming, cycling or climbing Whiteface we want you to enjoy yourself. Nothing on the schedule is mandatory.   

Get ready for nightly swim relay races from one of the best houses in Lake Placid: Camp Awesome.  

There will be our Third Annual Whiteface Challenge - Eight grueling miles of riding straight uphill and the reward are the beautiful views, a cold beer and the ripping fast ride down!.  

Our camp is to prepare you for your big race and to also ensure that everyone has a great camp experience.

   

The Coaches:

 We have the best. Leading our staff is John Grieco of Breakthru Coaching. He will be assisted by Melissa Grieco and Karina Alba. Combined, these three coaches have completed over 30 Ironman 140.6 races. 

  

Half Ironman training plan:

 To help you along on your training, John at Breakthru (www.mybtcoach.com) put together a basic half ironman training plan for you to use as a baseline to be sure you're on track - just plug in your race date and it will calculate what you need to do and when.  

 HR Calculator:

 One of the key elements of training is to train SMART.  So to help you do this we also have a heart rate zone calculator to enable you to accurately determine your zones.  It has three levels of precision so plugging in just your age can get you a reasonable starting point. When you determine and plug in your resting heartrate, max heartrate or do lactate threshold testing, it will give you more precision for your cycling and running zones.
