What it's all About

We are excited to announce the 8th Edition of our highly desirable Triathlon Empowerment Camp.  For the past 7 years, this immersive camp has been based at the Mauna Lani Hotel and Bungalows on the spectacular island of Kona.  

As with all Purple Patch camps and programs, your balanced training schedule will be designed and led by Matt Dixon, with the expert support of Paul Buick and the Purple Patch coaches.

The beautiful Mauna Lani property sets the stage for a memorable camp experience. Throughout the week you will have an opportunity to swim in the Pacific, ride your bike and run on the IM World Championships course.  Our team of experienced coaches and support staff will be there to guide your every step.
