Dare2tri Paratriathlon Training Camp is open to athletes of all experience levels. Athletes travel from across the country to participate in Dare2tri’s three-day camp at Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, which boasts top-level coaches, first-rate facilities, ample state of the art adaptive equipment for participant use, and highly trained and qualified staff and volunteers ready and willing to assist with anything an athlete might need. 

Camp kicks off with two full days of clinics in swimming (pool and open water), cycling/handcycling, running/pushing, transition, nutrition, equipment maintenance and much more. On Sunday, athletes are invited to put their new skills to the test and cross the finish line at the Dare2tri Tri It Triathlon. All paratriathletes are welcome to participate, whether or not they attended the camp.  

Dare2tri Paratriathlon Training Camp is the Official Technical Training Camp of USA Paratriathlon.


2016 training Camp: Impacts

I am grateful for the time to spend focusing on technique, learning new functional training, running, swimming and biking techniques. It was a true joy to meet everyone, and I hope to stay in contact with my new friends and mentors. It is becoming increasingly clear training is important to my well-being, not just fitness wise, but generally it makes me a better person.
