To reserve your spot or ask a question:
A 2-day training camp for multisport athletes. The ideal athlete is somebody with some multisport experience who is training for a longer-distance triathlon (Olympic distance triathlon or longer). You don’t have to be ‘fast’ or ‘slow’. You just need to be willing to have fun, learn, and work hard. Note the activities we are planning and make sure you are capable of handling this type of volume.
Saturday and Sunday, August 25 and 26, 2012
The camp begins in Hannibal, MO Saturday morning but settles in Quincy, IL Saturday evening and Sunday.
There is not cost for attending the training weekend, but you are responsible for the following things:
1) Getting yourself to and from the training weekend
2) Mississippi River Run entry fee
3) Food for the Saturday bike ride
4) Dinner Saturday night
5) Hotel Saturday night
6) Breakfast Sunday morning
The camp itinerary is below.
8:00 a.m.: MISSISSIPPI RIVER RUN 5K OR 10K
HANNIBAL, MO. Mississippi River Run 5k or 10k ($20 for adults, $10 for students). Either mail in the registration form (attached to the same email this was attached to) or go to the website: mississippiriverrun.com to print out a registration form. You can register the morning of the race.
10:00 a.m.: BIKE RIDE (~75 MILES)
HANNIBAL, MO. Hannibal - Louisiana bike ride. Approximately 75 miles but out and back so riders could turn back. This ride has over 3200 feet of climbing. This is an unsupported ride in that you are responsible to bring food and water for yourself. There are limited stores along the way where you can reload calories and hydration.
We will begin at Becky’s Old Fashion Ice Cream Parlor 318 North Maine Hannibal, MO at 10:00 a.m. The turnaround is a popular restaurant called the Eagle’s Nest at 221 Georgia in Louisiana, MO. We will potentially eat lunch here as a group before returning to Hannibal, but since there will be varying levels of riders, it may make sense to eat with the group you are riding with – but we can discuss this before the ride.
Carrie Kimber (triathlete from Quincy, IL) will ride with the slowest riders, while Joe Company will ride ahead with some of the faster riders. Joe will make an effort to ride with most people to offer tips and answer questions. You are responsible to know the route (Simply stay on Route 79 the whole way. We will provide maps and course descriptions the day of the ride).
The ride is over 3200 feet of climbing and people need to be prepared with adequate nutrition and hydration. We recommend 2 water bottles and your choice of calories for the first half of the ride. We will eat lunch and refill at a gas station in Louisiana.
~4:00 p.m.: TRAVEL TO QUINCY, IL.
The remainder of the training weekend will be in Quincy, IL.
