RING OF FIRE VI - April 13-16, 2017
Delphi was founded on several ambitious ideals, but none more acute than the desire to fully embrace fitness in a fun and supportive environment. One of our primary goals is to organize one or more destination fitness camps each year that allow our athletes to carve some time outside of their normal schedule and environment to train in a unique, challenging and memorable environment.
The Ring of Fire (ROF) Tri Rally is just such an opportunity! Taking place over the three-day Easter 2017 weekend (4/13-16), and in partnership with Hill Country Multisport (HCMS), ROF allows participants to engage in training of epic proportions in swimming, cycling, running and hiking. Attendees are welcome to participate in as many or as few training events as they’d like... Or none at all! They are further encouraged to design an experience around their personal goals and interests.
Throughout the weekend, you can choose to adhere to all or a portion of our organized training schedule or go your own way. Our itinerary includes exciting activities such as:
Additional opportunities abound for those who prefer to get a little dirty.
The primary purpose of the weekend centers around endurance training- but like Delphi itself, the theme of this weekend is absolute flexibility and inclusivity. You’re an adult (hopefully)... If you want to test just how far you can pedal your bike at one time without seeing another human being, knock yourself out... For those that instead prefer to see how vertical they can run in two days, there are more mountains here than you can conquer in a month... And if your idea of endurance is hanging out beside the pool refining your tanning technique in the middle of a desert oasis, we’ll be happy to tell the folks at home you were perfecting your supercompensation cycle. And nobody will be the wiser.
We’re multisport junkies, so of course we’ve got a strict training plan for our playtime as well. In the evenings, we’ve arranged for one-of-a-kind excursions to the McDonald Observatory Star Party, the Fort Davis National Historic Site and yes, even the Marfa Lights. And the remainder of the weekend... well.. I guess you’ll just have to come out and see for yourself!
Hopefully, we’ve sparked some interest in what has become a very popular tradition for local outdoors enthusiasts. Here are the main details:
