Trail Technique Training Camp Description:

Join Ultra Trail Spain for our trail technique training camp. We are lucky to be able to offer you a running experience over a variety of trails. There is single track mountain trail, steep rocky gorge ascents, winding pine-woodland trail, olive grove dirt roads, and much more!

During our trail technique camp, you will learn the best way to approach different trails – which is very valuable if you propose to take on some bigger challenges later in the season.

Learn when to run and when to hike on different ascents. Build confidence while descending. Master narrow trails. But above all, have lots of fun!

Our training camp kicks off with a short ice-breaker run around the local area. The following day is all about uphill training in the morning, with a hiking session in the afternoon. It’s then technical descending day, in which we help you build your confidence, with a steady run/ hike in the afternoon. Your third day is a partial rest day with a steady 16km on flatter terrain and bar lunch. Our final full day is spent on the Sierra Parapanda experiencing some mid-height mountain terrain (at 1,500m altitude), on the variety of trails the range has to offer. Come build your trail running experience.
