Join Ben Greenfield for Triathlon Camp in Kona, Hawaii, May 27 to June 2, 2012!

Join Ben Greenfield at Epic Camp Lite in Kona Hawaii, coached by IM talk co-host and former pro triathlete John Newsom and Ironman World Champion and triathlon legend Scott Molina on May 27-June 2, 2012!

Epic Camp has a long and proud history of producing unique challenges in the best locations in the world. Our Kona 2012 camp will be a modified version of the normal camps with a chance to take in some heavy training on the Kona course before tapering off a little for the Kona 70.3 race.

The camp will be open to athletes of all abilities.  And to ensure everyone gets good quality sessions, we will break the athletes into groups. This is an awesome chance to get an epic experience, see the big island, train with some like-minded athletes and tie it all in with a great race.


Coaches – John Newsom & Scott Molina (Ben Greenfield will also be in attendance)

Camp content – you will get to do the Ironman course in it’s entirety as well as some not-so-well-known routes from Kona that are fantastic rides. We won’t have a points system for this camp but will put up some little incentives to ensure there is no slacking.

Timing – the timing of the camp is perfect for anyone looking to peak for a mid season Ironman such as CDA, Placid, Germany, etc., or lay the early season base for later in the year.

Support – we will have a solid support crew in place to ensure all you focus on is training and having an awesome time.


Arrivals – everyone is to arrive by Sunday, 27th May, with training starting on Monday

Departures – Sunday, 3rd June


We will spend the first 4-5 nights in Kona at condo style accommodation. The rooms will be twin share.

For the final 2-3 nights we will move out to the plush Mauna Lani ( ) which is very close to the race venue We’re just confirming some logistics and will then decide on either 2 or 3 nights at Mauna Lani.


We will be eating out most nights (several nights will be at the famous Lava Java). Lunches will often be on the road and breakfasts will be self serve in the units. We will have some sports nutrition products but if you have your special favourites bring them along (but there are a couple of good bike shops in Kona)
