Hey Gang!

Chris McCormack aka "Macca" is coming to Los Angeles this fall!!   Chris will be in town to hold his triathlon training camp in Santa Monica in conjunction with the LA Tri Club.  His camp will be held Sept 29th  - Oct 2nd. 

He is going to keep things small and intimate, so you get quality time during the camp.  Since LATC never skimps on the FUN as well as training , we can expect a priceless combination of focused training and coaching advice with festivities, chilling-out time, storytelling and general good times.

"Macca" has created a fantastic offer for LATC members to join him for his  2015 MaccaX L.A. CAMP this fall exclusively for LA Tri Club!  In addition he is offering any of you who may want to bring friends or potential new triathletes can also join the training camp. See below for more details for friends and potential members. 

"Macca's" camp is normally $289 for the public.  However, if you are an LATC member it’s ONLY $89!*   If any of your friends  would like to attend camp but don't want to pay $289, they can join  MaccaX and you can still attend camp for $89 and their LATC membership is free as long as they maintain their MaccaX membership !**  That’s a $270 savings!!

The fun continues into the weekend!!…

Since I’ve come all the way…. I’ll be heading up to LA Tri Club's annual Club Race and BBQ on Saturday, October 3rd, starting at 8AM at the Hansen Dam Aquatic center.  3 different races to choose from, I will give tips and technique advice as well as having a great time. Bring your mates and friends!!    Click here for more details: RSVP Here
