National Triathlon Training Camp

What to be part of a team, get the swag and get discounts off merchandise, well then NTTC might be a good place to start.

About the NTTC

Founded in November of 1982 by triathletes Mark Wendley and Tom Peters, the National Triathlon Training Camp (NTTC) held the world’s first triathlon camp in Malibu, California in May of 1983. From 1986 to 1994, the NTTC also ran the sport’s most successful racing team, recording over 190 wins and 650 top-10 finishes in triathlons worldwide.

In 2006, after an 11-year hiatus, NTTC returned with a new business plan, a new Title Sponsor, and a hunger to regain our spot at the pinnacle of triathlon. Team Sport Beans/NTTC is being led by a new group of world-class and up-and-coming pros, who have already won 28 triathlons and notched 72 top-10 finishes since 2006. Our pros also work on staff at our triathlon camps and clinics. The team is open to everyone! When you join, you’ll get lots of freebies plus member discounts on NTTC camps, clinics, tours, team apparel and equipment, and much more! We’ve also added the most affordable, fully-customized online triathlon coaching available. Please check out all our programs and enjoy your stay at the NTTC web site. WELCOME!
