Partners with Multisports Camp in January
Elite Triathletes On Hand to Offer Training Expertise
San Diego, Calif. (Aug. 31, 2005) -- Runners and triathletes of all levels
are invited to learn from some of the best in the field at the P.F. Chang's
Rock 'n' Roll Arizona Multisports Experience, presented by Triathlete
Magazine that will be held in conjunction with the P.F. Chang's Rock 'n'
Roll Arizona Marathon & ½ Marathon. Set for Jan. 12-14, 2006, the camp will
culminate with participation in the third annual rock 'n' roll road race
scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 15.
The Multisports Camp is a pre-race program geared to all levels of
triathletes and runners, whether they are preparing for a spring event or
just want to learn more about cross training and triathlons. Ironman
Triathlon World Champions Paula Newby-Fraser, Peter Reid, Heather Fuhr,
Michellie Jones, and expert coaches Paul Huddle and Roch Frey, will be in
Arizona to share their knowledge and expertise.
The camp is designed as a pre-race taper camp. There will be light workouts
and lectures featuring topics including heart rate training, planning a
training schedule, pre and race day nutrition, and mental preparation.
Paula Newby-Fraser, an 8-time Ironman Champion that has been recognized as
the greatest all-around female athlete in the world," has agreed to pace
the 3:40 time in the marathon, a popular woman’s Boston-qualifying time.
Anyone registered for the marathon, assuming they can keep the pace, will
have an opportunity to run with Paula. Other top triathletes, to be named
at a later date, will be leading pace groups in the marathon and half
Camp enrollment is $395 including entry into the marathon or $375 with
entry in the half marathon.
