Mid-Season Recap 2017

Mid-Season Recap 2017

It’s amazing to think that 2017 is already halfway over. As we move towards the back half of the season, we are approaching some of our athletes’ key races of the year. While Endurance Corner has its roots in long course triathlon, we now proudly have athletes competing in a variety of events including short and long course triathlon and duathlon, open water swimming, Spartan racing, SkiMo racing, bike racing and hand cycle racing.

Soon we will be approaching many of the championship events of the season including USAT Nationals, the 70.3 World Championship in Chattanooga, TN, and the Ironman World Championship in Kona, HI. With the 70.3 World Championship taking place in North America, we have moved our Fall Fast Camp in Tucson forward to August 24-27 to help athletes incorporate it into their schedule. While the camp is great for preparing for 70.3 Worlds, it is also a great training opportunity for Kona and any other late season events, both long and short. You can find more information about this camp on the Fall Fast Camp page.

Below you will find some highlights and photos from our athletes and their coaches. We would like to thank of all of our athlete for putting their trust in Endurance Corner. May you all continue to have great success throughout the rest of this season and beyond.
