Those look­ing to es­cape win­ter for a week of in­ten­sive swim, bike and run train­ing will no- doubt be think­ing of mak­ing a trip to warm weather des­ti­na­tion this win­ter. Last spring, we at­tended the Pace Per­for­mance train­ing camp in Tuc­son, Ariz. in early April to get some ideas on how a big week of train­ing might kick off the race sea­son.

The camp of­fers Cana­dian triath­letes the chance to es­cape win­ter in a warm cli­mate with an ideal land­scape to make some se­ri­ous gains on the bike. With Mount Lem­mon just a short ride away, plenty of off-road trails for soft- ground run­ning and lots of quiet, open roads, here’s why Tuc­son is worth a look if you’re think­ing of a train­ing get­away.
