Just returned home from the beautiful hidden gem that is Moclin. The impressive views and delicious food was only outdone by Steve & Sarah's warmth and friendliness. A superb few days of challenging running through incredible scenery. Highly recommended
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!
Just had fantastic week with Steve and Sarah in Andalucia. I had a perfectly tailored program that pushed me hard but was exactly what I wanted. They both ran with me each day and organised everything down to the last detail. Marathon Des Sables Training

About Trail Running Holidays
Our runs are all tried and tested – by us! We love them all because they take you through beautiful surroundings, helping you to explore your limits and discover the local countryside. You could be scaling single-track climbs, passing through pine woodland, olive groves, and Spanish villages all on one run.
We mix up our itinerary and the below is simply a guide as to what you can expect. All our routes are suitable for novice trail runners through to race winners; a novice runner may just walk a little more.
All routes can be adapted; if you need longer distance to improve your overall endurance fitness, then we can certainly add a few extra climbs and kilometers! Alternatively, if you need a faster, shorter, speed sharpener – well - we’ve got plenty of those too.
Before we even step foot on a trail, we’ll find out exactly what your level and goals are to enable us to put together a schedule to suit you. We are however flexible – even if your legs aren’t - and can adjust this if you want to change mid-holiday.
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. For those accompanying you, but wishing to run a shorter distance, we can arrange pick-up at designated refreshment stops.
You will discover that the cuisine of Andalucia is simple and tasty, making use of what is seasonal and locally available.
