Thank you for choosing UltraMc Endurance for your endurance adventure camp needs. Our goal is provide a seamless camp experience from start to finish. We will do this by making sure you have all of the information needed to book your flight, gear needed to pack your bags, and take care of you from when we pick you up at the airport to when we drop you off at the end of the camp. Since the group is kept small, then we are able to provide one on one coaching on swimming, biking, running, and strength/core training. We are excited to have you part of our Texas Camp and look forward to seeing your smiling face at the airport. If you need anything, please don’t wait, give Coach Michael Covey a call at (425)770-8029, or email: [email protected]

From Seattle, please try and book Alaska non-stop flight. You will leave Seattle around 1145am and arrive in San Antonio around 5:30pm. Returning to Seattle you will leave San Antonio at 6:50pm and arrive in Seattle around 9:25pm.

When traveling with your bike, there is an additional charge to your bike above the cost of the ticket. Alaska only charges $25 each way. Other airlines charge $100-$150….and this is each way. So take this into consideration when looking at the price of your flight.
Life happens and so I would look into travel insurance. If you need to change you flight or cant make the trip, then you are covered.

Most of the climbs are 4-7% grade and are no longer that 0.5 miles.
