BADTri Training Camp 2020 - Club La Santa, Lanzarote

Thursday, 19 March 2020 - Thursday, 26 March 2020


The Team at BADTri has once again organised a training camp for you to enjoy (or suffer, depending on your point of view). For one week, we will visit Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands. Temperatures are usually a pleasant 20 to 25℃, with a constant breeze.

We will be staying at Club La Santa, which is one of the top sports and active holiday resorts in the world. Situated on the north-west coast of Lanzarote, the resort features over 80 different sports and free group instruction for you to use throughout your stay. Club La Santa is the perfect place for you to do as little or as much as you like.

A £100 non-refundable deposit will secure your place. The total cost of your training camp will very much depend on the accommodation, catering and training options you choose. These are set out below. Flights are excluded from the cost and you will need to book these separately.

Accommodation Options

The accommodation at Club La Santa is based on self-catering apartments of varying categories and are priced per apartment:
  • 1 bedroom comfort apartment (1 twin room, 1 sofa bed, 1 bathroom) at £1,092 (max 3 people recommended)
  • 2 bedroom comfort view apartment (2 twin rooms, 2 sofa beds, 2 bathrooms) at £2,240 (max 4 people recommended)
  • 2 bedroom suite (2 twin rooms, 2 sofa beds, 2 bathrooms) at £2,527 (max 4 people recommended)
To determine the cost to you, you need to split the cost of the apartment between the number of people sharing the apartment.

Training Options

Club La Santa has many sporting options available and most are included in the price. Optional extras subject to an additional charge include: Scuba diving, golf green fees, hire of golf clubs, physiotherapy and massage, professional one to one tuition, excursions and entry into the wellness centre.

The team at BADTri has also organised a triathlon-specific training camp offered by Robin Brew Sports for a cost of £249 per person. If sufficient members book this option through BADTri, we may also get a 10% discount on this price. Alternatively, BADTri has arranged that those who do not take part in the optional training camp can join the lectures and group information sessions free of charge.

You can either bring your own bike (which you store in your apartment) or you can hire one out there (advance booking essential).

Catering Options

The apartments are self-catering and there is an on-site supermarket. However, optional meal packages are available should you not wish to cater for yourself:
  • Half board at £24 per person per day
  • Full board at £32 per person per day
You can book this at the time of check-in and you need not go for this option every day. Alternatively, you can avail yourselves of the on-site restaurants on a pay-as-you-go basis or visit the restaurants in the town about 20 minutes' walk away.

Flights and Transfers

Flights are not included in the cost of the training camp and you will need to make your own arrangements. Multiple flight operators serve Lanzarote from Bristol, but BADTri will announce which one is the preferred one. The advantage of booking the preferred flight operator is that BADTri can co-ordinate airport transfers in Lanzarote, which will cost about £10 each.
