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.

I had such an amazing week of running with Sarah and Steve at Ultra Trail Spain. They tailored each run to my goals and abilities and were super flexible in adjusting depending on how I felt. The apartment was perfection; the village of Moclin is stunning; and (...)

I visited in February for a sunny break; with the intention of having a holiday but with an eye on an April marathon.

Through pre-visit communication I explained this and also my ‘experience’, or lack of, on trails and hills.

It’s worth noting that (...)

Thank you for your review Mags! Good to hear the mojo is back. Keep up the good work. Remember consistency is king. Now go smash that marathon! Good luck!

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.


We had a short, but fantastic stay with Sarah and Steve. Great location with beautiful views, fabulous trails and professional guidance. We clocked up more km than we thought we could achieve and were well looked after both on and off the trail. We highly (...)


Ultra trail Spain is fantastic! It was an amazing experience. For me it was my first time running trail but definitely not my last time. I ended up at Ultra Trail Spain through a friend. She had already run with them and was very satisfied. Sarah and Steve are (...)


I had a great week! Beautiful running trails, good apartment and very well organized. Thanks a lot, Sarah and Steve!


A fantastic training break Sarah and Steve organised a tailor made experience from running routes, logistics, food and knowledge in a stunning location.


I was very impressed with the thought and detail that Steve and Sarah provided in the itinerary before and during the holiday. They were also flexible during the vacation, realizing that not everyone is at the same level of fitness and/or ability. A phenomenal experience! Highly recommended!


Training for Isle of Wight Marathon. An absolutely 5 star experience. Steve and Sarah’s organisation was exceptional – all the logistics were taken care of so I was able to relax and focus on each run and enjoy the spectacular scenery that the area has to (...)


Just spent the last 4 days with Sarah and Steve at Casa la Cabra, Moclin. Everything was fabulous, from the warm, friendly welcome to the well equipped and extremely comfortable apartment. The bespoke running programme was superb with lots of advice on (...)


This was our 4th trip to Moclin for an Ultra Trail Spain holiday and following our ups and downs throughout lockdown we wondered what to expect. Sarah and Steve planned a wonderful week using a mix of new and well-known trails to coax us back to running (...)


Had a great week in Moclin on excellent and varied trails. Schedule was well prepared with lots of great feedback and advise!


Booked a week of training with Steve and Sarah for the second time. With each training they have provided a great route and care along the way. Because they run with you, you don't have to think about anything, just put on your shoes and go! Overnight stay was (...)


Thank you, Steve and Sarah for another great Christmas Holiday. I always have such a good time. Thank you all- really enjoyed meeting everyone. Let me know if you are ever in the Boston or DC area. See you out on the trails. Happy New Year!
