This camp is a must for all Arch to Arc contenders to build early season Sea hours and give an understanding of what is needed to swim the English Channel.

TRAINING CAMP OBJECTIVES:
Camp objective is to ensure 2018 A2A Athletes and swimmers know what is expected of them when they arrive at Dover after running 87miles (140Kilometres) and wish to swim the English Channel.

  • Enduroman objective is to build the athletes early season hours in the sea as quickly as possible to give them a big step towards the swim racing season in the Uk or Northern Europe.
  • Enduroman objective is to encourage every individual on our camp to reach their maximum while maintaining or expanding on the skills needed to succeed.
    • PROGRAME OF TRAINING:
      There is no formal programme published as decisions are made on a daily basis. Once the daily choices are decided each individual athlete can choose what and for how long they will exercise.

      THE REASON IT WORKS:
      Each individual athlete is like minded and is working towards fulfilling an ambition of their choice. Previous years have shown they very quickly become a team and as such encourage each other and achieve more than they anticipated. They share stories of previous events and pass onto each other a wealth of information.

      Every interested athlete will pay to Enduroman a booking fee of £50 to secure a position on the training camp. Every athlete will pay Enduroman no more than £25 per day for use of our services.
      Booking fee deducted from final payment.
