Coach Martin Hill (Triathlon Training Spain), a British Triathlon Federation Level 3 Coach and Certified Swim Smooth Coach, alongside Coach Matt Hill, ASA Level 2 Swim Coach and Personal Trainer, lead the first SwimSmooth triathlon camp in Africa!

The camp will take place in the hidden training grounds of the Brownlee brothers and former world champion runner, Hicham Guerrouj. At 1700 meters of altitude, Ifrane, Morocco is home to the cedar-forested Middle Atlas Mountains offering superb running trails, and a world-class 50-meter indoor pool. Although the camp is swim focused, it also includes running and strength-training sessions, as well as triathlon training discussions alongside individualized feedback based on HD video recording and observation. The inclusive camp offers airport transfers, private transport throughout, quality accommodation at the town's heart, all superb meals and snacks (even for vegetarians), cultural experiences, local music, and a guided trip to explore the ancient UNESCO-protected medina of Fez with a riad (guesthouse) stay and farewell dinner before departure.

The swim camp is based on the SwimSmooth philosophy of training which has taken many amateur and professional swimmers and triathletes to a higher level of performance. SwimSmooth has become the number one most trusted and recognized swim company in the world. This SwimSmooth certified camp is made possible with collaboration from the Athletic Department of Al Akhawayn University and specialist Morocco tour company Journey Beyond Travel.

Participants

Coming from various corners of the globe, participant athletes coming to Morocco for this swim camp should speak English and have a basic to intermediate level of swimming ability. The camp is so individualized that we can accept amateur to elite athletes. The camp is geared to swimmers and triathletes who wish to learn how to swim more efficiently, technically sound, and learn about training that will take your ability to the next level. You'll be spending significant time each day in the water and taking part in strength training and natural running sessions.

Arrival & Schedule

The camp dates are March 9 through March 16, 2014. Pick up and drop off will be arranged from the Fez train station or airport. You'll have to make your way to Fez.

Marrakesh is seven hours away rom Fez by train if you choose to arrive there. From the US, Delta (partnered with AirFrance) makes a good flight.
