Imagine this.... 

  • Training without distraction or limits on your time
  • Figure out what YOU need to work on to get faster 
  • Playing and having fun while strengthening your skills

Come to mini camp!  Build what you need to reach those bad ass goals you have for yourself. This is one on one time with Coach Sonja and any other RTTC coaches who come into town. This is high touch, lots of attention, lots of training, all with the goal of sending you home faster and more motiated than you arrived. We will adventure, eat good food, and work on YOU!

What if you could.....

  1. leave your responsibilities behind for a few days and focus on getting faster
  2. infuse some adventure into your training by exploring the Central Coast of California (awesome)
  3. train side by side with RTTC coaching, including RTTC owner Sonja for specific guidance on your form, technique, execution, and skills.

Where to Stay: 

There are two places to stay in Los Osos. Our first and priority recommendation is the Back Bay Inn. They have several lodging options that work well for groups. One is the cottage. It's amazing (and the view is to die for) and it has a kitchen. The other is the loft which also has a kitchen. The inn is right on the bay and includes breakfast every morning and wine and snacks in the evening. It's kinda magical.

Our second recommendation is the Baywood Inn Bed and Breakfast. It's across the street from the back bay inn so you can head to the coffee shop for breakfast in the morning. All the rooms are themed and have refrigerators.

There are also some places in Los Osos on airbnb. If you are going to stay in Morro Bay (5 miles away) or San Luis Obispo (12 miles away) you will want to secure your own transportation.


Los Osos is a small town but has some great hidden gems. KUMA has fantastic sushi, Sylvester's has great burgers, the Baywood Ale House has good food and lots of beer. And Nois Thai has some of the best Thai take out on the Central Coast. The back bay coffee shop is your hub for a cup of Joe, breaky, pastries, and wifi! 

What to Bring:

We recommend checking the weather the week leading leading up to camp. As a good rule of thumb, bring layers. The central coast is typically cool on the coast and warm inland. We will be training in both climates.

Swimming: 2 pool swims + one OWS: pool toys and open water swim gear including your wetsuit. Showers are available for after swimming at the pool. 

Biking: 4 sessions: It's best to bring 4 kits so you don't have to do laundry. You will want arm warmers, knee warmers, hat and gloves. The coldest we will ride in is 40 degrees (and dry). Common temps for the Central Coast are in the 60s and 70s. You will want a tri kit for day 3 (it's a great day to test your race kit)

Running: Everyday: All of our run sessions will be outdoors. MDO is a state park with trails and the most epic ocean views. There is some single track and some double track. The footing can go from gravel to rooted. Trail shoes are encouraged. Please bring a way to carry your hydration, whether it's a hand bottle or a hydration pack. The rest of the sessions you don't need trail shoes for. Day three you will want to wear a tri kit. Bring layers in case we are running in 40 degree cool weather. 

Paddleboarding: I wear board shorts and a warm top if it's cold. If you are worried you will get wet and be cold I advise wearing your wetsuit. We will provide instruction! 


We can't wait to see you!
