ATP Triathlon Training Weekend

Messinia

The ATP Triathlon Training Weekend is a training camp in the idyllic area of Messinia.  The camp will help athletes familiarize themselves with the Costa Navarino IM70.3 race courses. The 2-day camp is intended not only for the participating triathletes but also the single-sport athletes, swimmers, cyclists and runners who wish to practice their favorite sport while discovering the amazing countryside and warm hospitality (“philoxenia”) of Messinia


Welcome

Welcome to the ATP Triathlon Training Weekend, taking place at Messinia, a land with glorious past, stunning scenery and famous olive oil!

What
Triathlon training camp, open not only to the participating triathletes but also the single-sport athletes, swimmers, cyclists and runners who wish to practice their favorite sport while discovering the amazing countryside and warm hospitality (“philoxenia”) of Messinia.
All level of athletes are welcome, as the course reconnaissance training will be non competitive. The training camp will include a seminar on technique, race tactics, nutrition and general preparation for the IM70.3, as well as a visit to a distinctive winery whose premium quality wines have been awarded top honors in international competitions. In addition, since the region has so much to offer in terms of culture, gastronomy and ancient sites, this trip can easily be combined with a mini holiday.
It is a perfect opportunity to bring along friends or family who will have a wonderful time relaxing or training casually and experiencing the famous hospitality of the southwest Peloponesse.

Messenia is a prefecture in the Peloponnese, a region of Greece. Messenia is bounded on the east by Mount Taygetus, on the north by the river Neda and the Arcadian Mountains, and on the west and south by the Mediterranean Sea, more specifically on the west by the Ionian Sea, and on the south by the Gulf of Messenia.

Messinia is being habited for thousand years, with a great history as a background. Witnesses of its long history are the countless classical, byzantine and newer monuments in the prefecture. Monuments and cultural inheritance of Messinia, in combination with the beautiful landscape that surrounds them, give a magic power to Messinia,that captures even the most demanding visitor.

Some of the places that are worth visiting are Kalamata city, Pilos, Methoni, Koroni towns, Ancient Messene, Neda River, Voidokilia beach, Kardamili village, Pollimnio Waterfalls. 
Ancient Messene is a significant ancient city in terms of its size, form, and state of preservation, and still has much to offer. It possesses not only sanctuaries and public buildings, but also imposing fortifications, and houses and tombs. Αmidst the peaks of Mt. Tetrazio, at the northern end of Messinia, Neda, the only female-gender river of Greece, flows towards the gulf of Kiparissia. Kardamili is a spectacularly beautiful seaside village located in Mani, the coast of Greece defined by travel connoisseurs as the New Côte d'Azur. 

Set dramatically against a backdrop of crystalline aqua-blue waters, majestic cypress trees, wild olive groves, verdant rolling hills and distant snowcapped mountains, it is one of the prettiest of villages that overlook the calm seas and splendid sunsets of the Messinian Gulf. Voidokilia beach, which is situated at 12 km from the city of Pylos, in the north of the Navarino bay, is not only one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, but maybe also in the Mediterranean Sea. 
The sheltered bay is referred to in Homer's Odyssey and archaeologists believe it was used by King Nestor as a port in ancient times. Polilimnio Canyon is a magic place with waterfalls and lakes, beautiful wooden bridges that seems it is a hidden paradise. 

Visitors will be astonished by the wealth waiting for them in the form of local cuisine and will surprisingly discover the fundamental relation between food and enjoyment to the Greek everyday life.
