Train with Fiona Ford and Triathlon Europe in Chamonix

With the ITU Grand Final and Age-Group World Championships in Lausanne fast approaching, how about training under the guidance of an athlete with World Championship winning success there?

Fiona Ford – Head Coach of Triathlon Europe ( – won both the Standard Distance Triathlon and Aquathlon Gold medals in the F35-39 category when the championships were last held there in 2006.

Fiona prepared for those races in Chamonix – and has been organising training camps there ever since. “The location is where I prepared for my wins in 2006 and the program has been developed over the years for many athletes since then!”

“It’s all included – flights, accommodation and the performance program – so athletes can focus on the cumulation of improvement details to fine-tune and hone at altitude for a boost before a World Championship performance on 30-31st August!”
