001—Camp Valle de Tena - High altitude

Camp Valle de Tena, Pyrenees, Spain

Dates for camps 2022 will be published soon.

Run, train and discover some of the most beautiful mountains of Tena Valley in the Spanish Pyrenees.

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 four days. The ‘4K’ race is a tough, high-altitude mountain race of 43KM/3600m D+. We will break the course into four stages totalling 63KM/4750m D+, getting ready for the big challenge Trail Valle de Tena in August.

We welcome all levels of Skyrunners, from any country. If you haven’t tried Skyrunning before, you are also welcome to join us and we will introduce you to this fantastic sport. Although the routes requires that you are familiar with Trail-running, are in good fitness, and have trained some desnivels before you get here.

At the camp we will also do some specific training and teach you technique for the uphill, downhill, training with sticks etc. We will also go through the importance of hydration, nutrition, and equipment.

We will split up into two groups, one for the elite-amateurs and one for amateurs, and we will try to make this a very good quality training camp for all levels of runners.
