Syros is a hidden gem of a Greek Island, located in the Aegean Sea just South of Athens. Syros, the capital of the Agean, is home to beautiful beaches, delicious cuisine and a temperate climate all year round. 2019 marks the third year that Tri Training Harder have run training camps on the island. The quiet roads and empty beaches are the perfect home for the triathlon festival that takes place on the island on the same weekend as the training holiday. Try something different this year and join us on the stunning island of Syros for a hard training week that will be a challenge for everyone.
Due to the historic town and the trendy waterfront, there really is something for everyone and this is a perfect getaway for people to come and join us for a week while their partner does the training. This town is one of the places to visit in Greece and is off the beaten track so becomes a brilliant find for both the athlete and those looking for a more relaxing trip!
This is a coaching only package. The small town of Hermoupolis has many B&B’s, hotels and Air BnB’s around the marble streets and harbour area. The town is ideal for both the athlete and those coming for R&R, some guests like to bring along friends as there is loads to do in the town, or there are many beaches and swimming locations within a few minutes walk, or taxi away. For these reason, we have found it really hard to provide consistent accommodation packages for all our guests and inevitably, the rooms are all slightly different etc. As it is such a small location, we suggest finding accommodation near the main square in the town and you will be within a stones throw from the cafes, restaurants shops, historical centre and the meeting points for training which will set you up perfectly for the training week without limiting the social gathering of the group outside of sessions should you want to relax with new friends.
