Trail Running Holiday Description:

You'll love our running routes, chosen to suit you personally, as you explore your limits and discover the sun-drenched Spanish countryside. You could be scaling single-track climbs, passing through pine woodland, olive groves, and white-washed villages all in one run.

If you need longer distances to improve your endurance base, then we've got the trails. Alternatively, if you need a faster, shorter, speed sharpener – well - we’ve got plenty of wide-rolling tracks too.

Before we even step foot on a trail, we’ll find out exactly what your level and goals, if any, are to enable us to put together a schedule to suit you.

Less active friends and family members are welcome to come along too; there are plenty of other things to see and do in the area to make your holiday as active or as relaxing as you choose.

Training for Lakeland Trail / Ultimate Trails 55km Ultra Race. My partner and I decided to spend a week with Ultra Trail Spain after signing up for July's Lakeland 55 Ultra, woefully under prepared and never having run more than a road marathon. We are both (...)


Sarah and Steve are such great hosts for rural Spain. Moclin and the surrounding hills have some fantastic trails. Sarah and Steve offer the real personal touch to running in rural Spain. Ultra trail Spain running holiday was such a great experience for me!

I have just spent a wonderful few days with Sarah & Steve, running the trails around Moclín (the scenery is breathtaking). They are great hosts, and I can thoroughly recommend a running / walking holiday with them. Their attention to detail and knowledge of the area is second to none.


Just come back from a 5 day holiday with Sarah and Steve and spent most of the morning telling my friends at the local running club about it (Direct flight needed from Basel to Granda - please easyjet). As I expected before I went the trails were amazing and (...)


Very nice experience.
Sarah and Steve were very professional and insightful on the trails, and friendly and helpful before and after the runs.
Moclin is great for sport and relax, but the beautiful city of Granada is also very close.
I really enjoyed it!
