A superb week away running trails in the hills of Andalucia, Spain. From the very start my communication with Sarah and Steve, Ultra Trail Spain, was brilliant, before my trip even began there was frequent discussions regarding my interests, intentions, dietary choices etc, this made me feel very confident with the chosen company. I was met on arrival and it wasn’t long before we were meandering up the hills towards Moclín, the beautiful village that was to be home for the next week. My accommodation was lovely, spacious, well designed, very comfortable and authentic to the surroundings, and for once a shower that worked brilliantly (often rare on my travels) The running was the reason I’d came and I wasn’t disappointed, we always discussed plans the day before, and these were open to be adapted regarding how I felt. The terrain under foot was at times testing but never dangerous, this was due to the constant guidance and mentorship from Sarah and Steve. The scenery was definitely one of the reasons I’d recommend UTS, made all the better by gorgeous weather, and yes hot!… but this was also brilliant to train in, and we were never pushed beyond our capabilities. Sarah makes an unbelievable lunch that is both healthy and obviously nutritious, this lunchtime gathering was always a great time to go over our previous run/hike and explore intentions for tomorrow’s run. Sarah and Steve, Ultra Trail Spain, are a melting pot of both knowledge and experience and I came away enthusiastic to continue what I’d learned from my daily runs with them. Thankyou (I’m already looking in my calendar to see where I can squeeze another week away🤗)
