001—Camp Valle de Tena - High altitude

Camp Valle de Tena, Pyrenees, Spain

Run, train, have fun and discover some of the most beautiful mountains of Tena Valley in the Spanish Pyrenees, together with Team Arduua.

This is a high-altitude training camp, and we will reach peaks of 3000 meters of altitude.

We will run the course of the famous ‘Trail Valle de Tena 4K’ over three days. The ‘4K’ race is a tough, high-altitude mountain race of 43KM/3600m D+. We will break the course into three stages totalling 52KM/4050 m D+, getting ready for the big challenge Trail Valle de Tena in September.

Requirements & Experience

In order to attend the camp we require a certain level of physical and technical experience:

1. Experience in mountain running exceeding 2,000 meters of altitude in a technichal terrain, also involving parts with an incline more than 30%, some climbing with ropes etc.

2. Experience in handeling crampons (some parts of the highest peaks will be covered by snow this time of the year)

3. A proof of a similar mountain race, with a high technical degree, more than 30 km and 2000 positive meters of climb.
