Endurance Corner Tucson Camp 2009

Posted By: KP
Date: Friday, 31 October 2008, at 8:53 a.m.

Below are the details of a camp I am already looking forward to next spring. Like 2008, I will get the opportunity to be on staff and train shoulder to shoulder with my friends Gordo, Jeff, Alan and JD (see more below about each). But the highlight of the camp will be that coaches get to hang and train with the athletes we work with and have the opportunity to personally meet with new athletes looking to learn more about our sport and/or get a jump on warm weather training. I am pleased to see that some of the crew I work with are already committed (Mike Mooney 2nd year, Nina Thatcher 2nd year and Richard Rice 1st year. In 2008, Nina was the only gal at the early camp. It was a great experience for her but I am putting out a call in 2009 for other female endurance athletes to join us in Tucson.


Endurance Corner, out of Boulder, Colorado, will be hosting two triathlon camps in 2009. The first camp will take place in Tucson, Arizona and will be a training-based camp open to sub-13 hour Ironman athletes (or those of equivalent fitness levels).



This camp takes place from Sunday, March 29, 2009 to Sunday, April 5, 2009 (training from Monday the 30th to Saturday the 4th). The camp is designed to help jump start your cycling into the 2009 season with run and swim options offered every day as well.

The 2009 Camp includes:
*A century ride to Madera Canyon
*A summit ride of Mt Lemmon (nearly 6000 feet of vertical gain)
*Rides over Gates Pass from both summit directions
*A 55-mile route beginning in Oro Valley
*A long run in Saguaro East Park
*A century ride including the epic 12-mile climb up Kitts Peak

Coaches attending the camp will include:

Gordo Byrn: Author, Sub 8:30 IM finisher, Ultraman World Champion, and founder of Endurance Corner.
Alan Couzens: Exercise Physiologist, Coach, Athlete.
Kevin Purcell: Triathlon Legend! World famous Coach and Athlete (Kona qualifier)
Jeff Shilt: Sports Doctor, Coach, and Athlete (Kona Qualifier)
Justin Daer: Pro Triathlete and Camp Director

Where will I stay?
Athletes will be staying at the Hotel Arizona (double occupancy) from Sunday March 29th until Sunday April 5th. Athletes may request a single occupancy room for an additional fee.

What will I eat?
All meals from the evening of March 29th until the morning of April 5th will be provided for athletes attending the camp at Hotel Arizona. For the days we are on the road we will have lunch provided on site.

What if I have bike problems?
Professional Mechanics from Wheels on Wheels (WoW) will be on hand to help assist with any on-road problems as well as CLEANING your machine each day after you ride. All bikes will be stored and secured each evening by WoW and will be ready for you each morning at the designated roll out time. You just need to fill up your water bottles each morning and we will take care of the rest.

What about daily sports nutrition?
Endurance Corner will provide sports bars and sports drinks before each ride. Nutrition will also be available in all sag vehicles accompanying your daily rides.

What does it cost?
$2,350.00 covers everything, but your flight to Tucson. A $500.00 deposit will secure your spot until January 1, 2009.
