Event Information
A partnership between Sun Multisport Events and the coaches at Vescio Multisport Performance Services (Vmps), the 6th annual Patriot Half Training Camp is ideal for anyone training to race the Patriot Half or anyone preparing to compete in their first half iron (it’s not just for Patriot Half athletes!). This full day camp includes swim, bike and run clinics on the Patriot Half course as well as classroom instruction to help you ace your half distance triathlon experience.
About the coaches
The Patriot Half training camp will be led by Vmps head coach Elaine Vescio. Elaine is a certified USAT and Ironman coach and will lead a team of coaches specializing in open water swimming, cycling technique, running form, nutrition, tapering and more. To maximize the learning opportunity the coach to athlete ratio will be 15 to 1 (if not better). Also on hand will be Mark Walter, USAT Certified Race Director for the Patriot Half.
