Accommodation and meals included.

Triathlon Coaching

Head Coach Richard Laidlow leads a team of highly qualified and experienced coaches. At Sancture Sportifs we specialise in personalised online triathlon and IRONMAN coaching. We offer support 24/7 for every athlete and your coaching is supported by the latest web-based software, which is all included in the price.

Triathlon Training Plans

Sancture Sportifs customised training plans are designed to help each individual athlete train for an event or improve overall performance. We begin with in-depth analysis, we then create the best training plan for you. Free access to web-based technology allows you to accurately collect and analyse relevant data during training.


It quickly turns out that richard perfectly knows what to do to get improvements in endurance sports,  Triathlon and Cycling. I had a test at the beginning of the coaching and one 2 months later and I was so surprised about the gain in fitness that I nearly could'nt believe it! Richard I want to thank you for your patience. I always have a lot of questions, sometimes I need motivating words and sometimes I need someone that speaks honestly to bring me back on track. I hope we are still going to work together when I hit 40+/50+ age group :)

Having been coached by Richard for 18 months, I thought it was time to meet “Le Laidlows” en famille and experience the “joy” and “suffering” of a Training camp. It was a fantastic multi-cultural experience, Michelle is a fantastic host and the food and location is superb.

I’m a professional triathlete. So it is also really important to have a professional coach. Rich helps me to improve my weaknesses so that I can reach my goals. I am really excited to begin each new season, because I know that Rich can help me continue to go faster with all the experience he has. I’m glad to have found a coach like Rich. Our next big focus is to win the XTERRA World ChampionshipCarina Wasle

This is my second year training with Richard. I completed my first ironman with him last year. He prepared me for 10 mile road races, sprint, olympic and half ironman distance triathlons with pb's all round. My training plan is easy to follow and tailored to suit me. I know I'm race ready and have confidence in my coach.

I spent a week in Amelie with Richard and his family the past 2 years. It really is a sanctuary. You get your training done but equally get time to relax and unwind in their lovely home. A home away from home.
