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 2K, 4K and 8K,’ over three days. getting ready for the big challenge Trail Valle de Tena in September, where we will go as a team.

Except for the beautiful mountains and the routes, this will be an amazing experience, and a memory for life. We will be runners from all over the world, with different backgrounds, and different levels in running. But all with the same value base and interest, sharing the passion for trailrunning. We will stay in a big shared apartment, we will cook our meals together, we will run together, and off course, have a lot of fun together.

The 2022 season camp in June/July was a great success, and you can read more about it in the blog Magical days at Camp Valle de Tena with Team Arduua.

Requirements & Experience

In order to attend the camp we require a certain level of physical fitness, technical experience, and that you are in good health.

You do not necessarily need to be the fastest person in 10K, but a minimum requirement is that you within the last 12 months have been able to finish a mountain race 30-45 km, 1500-2000D+ (within the time limits of the race).

Your pacing is not super important, and we will split us up into 2-3 different groups, with different pacing.
