001—Trail Valle de Tena - Race Trip

Trail Valle de Tena - Race Trip

Located in the stunning surroundings of Tena Valley, the famous Trail Valle de Tena takes place on the steep and technical high-altitude mountains of the Spanish Pyrenees.

With races and distances from 20km to 77km, there is a race to suit your level of fitness and experience in skyrunning. Join Team Arduua for a weekend immersed in the skyrunning culture of Spain with like-minded runners.

The REC 2K (20km, 1250D+), is a good option for you that are not used to very hard mountain races, and a great first step into this fantastic sport.

The REC 4K (43km, 3600D+) , is a super hard and challenging mountain marathon with very steep and long uphills, and technical adrenaline downhills. The highest peak of these races are above 3000 meters of altitude.

The REC 8K (77km, 6800D+) , is an extreme and very challenging ultra-trail race with very steep and long uphills, and technical adrenaline downhills. The highest peak of these races are above 3000 meters of altitude.

Except for the beautiful mountains and challenging race cources, this trip 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 race trip in the beginning of September was a great success, and you can read more about it in the blog Team Arduua at Trail Valle de Tena in the Spanish Pyrenees.

We are also arranging a training camp in Tena Valley in June/July, where we are training specifically for these races doing parts of the routes. If you haven’t been to this area before, we recommend you to get some proper technical training, before entering the race.
CAMP VALLE DE TENA – HIGH ALTITUDE

Skyrunning, and the preparations for these challenging races are very different to road running. They require a specific approach to training to be able to overcome the physical, technical and mental elements involved, but they also let you venture into stunning landscapes and experience the adrenaline highs of summit views, rocky ridges and fast descents.

If you need some help with your training, Arduua Coaching is specifically focused in Trailrunning, Skyrunning and Ultra-trail. We build strong, fast, and enduring runners and help them to prepare for race day. By building personal relationships with our runners, we create the individual training you need to ensure that you are 100% ready on the day of the competition.
