001—Camp Valle de Tena - Low altitude

Camp Valle de Tena, Pyrenees, Spain

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

This is the time of the year when the highest peaks are still covered in snow, and it’s very beautiful. This will be our first camp for the season and a little warm up for the high altitude camp in June, and the big challenge Trail Valle de Tena in the end of August.

We welcome all levels of Skyrunners, from any country. If you havn’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 runnners.
