Training for a late season half or full ironman? Just looking for an awesome weekend of training?

Join us September 8-10, 2023 for 3 days of training that will leave you chomping at the bit to hit your start line, and ready to find the FINISH LINE!

If you want to go longer, don’t miss the long stuff. 

Sometimes it’s just difficult to battle work, family, and other responsibilities during those times in your training when you know you need to be getting in some big volume. If only we could all just be like the pros and train for a living. One weekend a year we’ve got you covered!

For 3 days you will be learning, swimming, biking, running, and hanging out with your newest tri buddies in rural Huntingdon, TN. On top of getting in big swim, bike, and run volume, we will be touching on every other part of the performance puzzle that can have a positive (or negative) effect on your goal race during our meal time break out sessions. All training sessions will be scalable to your needed or desired distance, with safety and full SAG/mechanical support along the way.

For those that book their weekend early, you have the opportunity to stay on site at the amazingly awesome Winkler Performance Center (we made that name up, it’s really called Sommerset Getaways). The compound is complete with a 25 yard lap pool which we will use for early morning pool sessions before our longer bikes and runs.

I'm IN! How do I book?


Will there be hills? Oh yes. That’s a big reason we chose Huntingdon. Its close proximity to Memphis and Jackson, coupled with its rolling terrain, made it a no brainer spot. The long ride we will do closely matches the total elevation of the IM Chattanooga course. It will make the Memphis 70.3 course seem a lot less intimidating. When you finish camp, you can be sure you will fear no hill.


Who is this camp for? The camp is for anyone looking to step up their game with a big weekend of training. If you happen to be doing a late season half or full ironman, you can come and get in a monster weekend of volume. We’ve picked the dates to really benefit those doing Ironman Chattanooga, Ironman Florida, Ironman Arizona, Ironman Waco, Ironman World Championships, Augusta 70.3, Memphis 70.3, 70.3 Worlds, or later! We’ve prepared routes for athletes in different phases of their training. We do ask that athletes are prepared to do a broken 2000-4000 yds swim, 40-100 miles on the bike, and a 10-20 mile run. For the safety of all the athletes, we also ask that riders be able to keep a 15mph rolling average.


What will we really be doing? Here is a basic itinerary (subject to change):

10am-12pm – Check In

12pm – Camp Begins – Open Water Swimming Instruction and Long Swim

Alright, what’s the cost?  Our camp will only cost $500 for all 3 days of training, coaching, camaraderie, and all the support, cheering, and high fives along the way. You simply won’t find a better value. And of course, BPC coached athletes receive an exclusive discount. Ask your coach for details.


Let’s lock in my spot! With so many possible athletes, we do have to limit the number of spots for safety purposes. So make your plans and lock in your spot TODAY!

What if I can’t commit to the full weekend or just want to ride long?  If you can’t make it all weekend or just want to take part in the fully SAG supported Saturday long ride and post ride feast, we have the option to only join us for the largest training day, which is Saturday. The cost for Saturday only is $200.

Do we need to bring food? It’s recommended you bring your choice of food for training sessions. We will have some available, but this is a great time to test your fueling plan. As far as meals, your stay at Sommerset will include Friday dinner, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday, as well as breakfast and brunch on Sunday. Chef Elvis is a wonder in the kitchen. We’ve been told the food is worth coming to the camp alone!
