What is CHASKIS?
CHASKIS is a community for people who are looking for practical ways to incorporate training into their everyday lives. CHASKIS shares ideas for athletes (and aspiring athletes) via the Dig Deep Podcast, CHASKIS Challenges and CHASKIS Retreats. CHASKIS is for athletes who are seeking a transformative experience and a supportive team.
Our mission is to give you ideas for simple steps you can take to get started, keep going and never quit.
Whether you are training for your first 5k or 10th Ironman distance triathlon, no matter what your obstacles, CHASKIS will empower you to achieve your endurance sport goals with customized support.
Our name references the Chasquis of the Incan Empire who ran miles and miles throughout the kingdom in order to deliver important messages and goods. Our founder, Hugo, is originally from Peru (where Cusco is, which was the capital of the Empire) and he wanted to create a community for athletes who share the values of the original Chasquis.
