The TRIEILAT was founded on the belief that we have the optimal conditions throughout the year to host athletes from around the world for structured week-long camps that include everything needed to allow you to be at your best: room and board, and well-organized training sessions accompanied by professional and technical assistance.

All the staff at the TRIEILAT are triathletes and iron-men themselves, that live and breath the sport24 hours a day. We love what we do and believe that we have enough knowledge to provide you with the most professional and enjoyable experience.

The TRIEILAT is held on the shores of the Red Sea (the town Eilat, at the northern end of the Gulf of Aqaba), with beautiful and challenging desert topography next to the clear blue sea. There is little car-traffic while riding and endless trails to run in the hills or along the shore. The weather is warm and dry and water temperature never drops below 21oC!

This is also the location of the annual Israman® competitions, one of the most challenging long-course triathlons in the world, and voted "one of the best 10 iron-distance triathlons" by Triathlete Magazine, 2010.

I invite you to consider joining us for a TRIEILAT, and will be delighted and honored to host you.

More than 3 million tourists visit Eilat every year, most of them come in the winter time; between October and May. The combination of mountains and clear blue sea, relaxing on the beach and night­life, the unlimited attractions for  the entire family make the city hard to resist. The location is reachable with one flight of few hours, making Eilat a very atractive city for European travel.
Eilat is located at the southernmost tip of Israel, on the shores of the Gulf of Aqaba (Red Sea), some 360 km away from Jerusalem and a similar distance from Tel Aviv. The Gulf of Aqaba is part of the Dead Sea rift valley and combines tranquil clear waters surrounded by desert mountains. This is an arid desert land where the temperatures are warm year­round, and rainfall is scarce ­ you can count on suitable training conditions
whenever you happen to arrive!
The combination of clear calm sea, warm and dry weather and secluded desert roads in mountainous terrain makes for great training grounds for various sports, and particularly
the swimming,­ bicycle, running combination.
Eilat is a busy touristic town and attracts some 3 million visitors annually. It is a favored destination for northern Europeans seeking a few days of sunshine during winter. Attractions include hotels and restaurants of all levels, night life, sunny beaches, coral reefs, diving facilities, desert excursions and more…

​Every year in January the long distance Israman competition takes place in Eilat. This competition (a local equivalent of an Ironman competition) is considered by many as one of the 10 hardest triathlon competitions in the world (Triathlete Magazine). The Red Sea Training Camp team is annualy taking part in this competition. The Isramen cycling route will let you experience up­hill cycling with slopes of up to 12% with changing
wind direction along the course. Our course along the Arava Vally let you fight your way against head northern wind, but you will benefit from a tail wind to have a speedy ride back home.

Our Staff

The Red sea training camp for ironman and triathlon was set up by Eddie Lugassy, with the belief that Eilat, the best location, and weather conditions along with proffessional training will make your training camp unforgetable.

"I always say I'm lucky that this sport is my love and that I live in this amazing city, where weather never stops me from going out."

Eddie Lugasy

The idea for the Eilat triathlon & Ironman training camp grows in my head, every time I return home from my morning training session. I always say I'm lucky that this sport is my love and that I live in this amazing city, where weather never stops me from going out.
For the last 8 years I have been engaged in training and competing in triathlon events ­ from full "Ironman" distance to olympic distance. I do all (or at least the vast majority) of my training here in Eilat. The sun shines all year round (although summers are warm, forcing you out in the early morning) , the sea is calm and the water is warm (never less then 21C in winter). Riding up the hills into the desert offers a challenging course with little traffic. I have threfore decided to set up training camps and invite athletes from all over the planet to take advantage of this perfect setting.
Hope to see you all soon,
Eddie Lugassy.
