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 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.
