A RACE PLAN EMERGES - CAMERON BROWN
Well it's been a crazy 6 months of COVID lockdowns here and around the world. Since I last raced in March at Ironman New Zealand, there has only been one other Ironman, which was a few weeks ago in Cairns, Australia. Here in NZ we have returned to level one, which means the country is back to normal again with just our borders shut. Hopefully in a few months time we will have open borders with Australia and the Pacific, and fingers crossed for a vaccine soon.
I've been getting ready for our summer season which will start in another month and I can't wait to race again! The last few weeks I've been down in the South Island gravel bike riding and running some epic mountains and trails. It was great to not only refresh the mind and body with some different training, but also to explore some different parts of New Zealand.
I'm super excited to race again and motivated for my 34th year in the sport on Triathlon!
Below are my first few races I've planned through summer 'Down Under', and there are many more to be added when the Calendar is finalised. Then hopefully we can be travelling again around the world!
Hope to see you out there!

It’d be easy to assume that competing in elite triathlon racing is completely aerobic: that training for a 70.3 or IRONMAN
race simply requires dozens of hours of swimming, biking, and running per week. But, while the cardiovascular components can’t be overlooked, HOKA professional triathlete Ellie Salthouse
knows that strength training is crucial is successful (and healthy) training and racing. As a multiple champion of the 70.3 distance, we sat down with Ellie to learn more about the importance of strength training, what her workouts look like, and more.
