Mountain Trail Packages – Trail Running Spain
We specialise in providing fully supported trail running holidays and running camps for both individuals, groups and clubs. The majority of our guests are single travellers, from all over the world. Our service extends to Triathletes who wish to take advantage of the warm weather here on the Costa Blanca. Take one of our Trail packages and train along the 85km Perimetral, a UTBM qualifying race. There are so many trail and mountain races here on the Costa Blanca, Oct to the end of March, ranging in distances from 12km to 100km.
It is possible to train all year around, in the warmer weather we set off earlier in the morning, catching the clear mountain air and running through the sunrise. We finish before it gets too warm and relax, taking a swim in the sea and a coffee at a local café. In the evenings we run under a clear sky of stars, a beautiful experience, not to be forgotten.
Train along the Perimetral, an 85km route of trail and mountains.

Amanda crosses the line after completing 65km and looks like she has not run ! She really enjoyed the training, the journey ( as she calls it ) and the race. Whilst others gave up, ( at various distances along the route ) as they started off far to quickly, Amanda ran the last 20km much faster than any other section of the course ! Probably the best race Amanda has ever done
The video is from the Perimetral in 2015, when it was a 65km race. You now have a choice of distances, 42km or 85KM. The 85km race is really much harder, as they have included not just the extra distance but a lot more gain in height. We looked at the cut off time, on various parts of the route and it is tougher than you want it to be. We know runners who did not make the cut off before and now it is much harder. Has to be said, the runners who did not make it, did not prepare very well. Anyone can enter but this does mean a lot do not finish. This not just two Marathons, say 6hrs or 7hrs the mountains are tough. When Amanda trained for this we estimated it would take 12.5hrs. it took 12.20min. We looked at a number of other runners we know, who run on the road with Amanda. We checked their times for half marathon and looked at their mountain trail times. We could see how much they slowed down per/km. We assumed Amanda would slow at the same rate ( of course she did ) and estimated her time to within 15mins.
