Marathon des Sables
The Marathon des Sables and other multi stage ultra-running events are increasing in popularity, as everyone is looking for the next Big challenge. The Marathon des Sables (MDS) in Morocco is just such an event, one of the many extreme multi stage races that take place each year.
The Marathon des Sables attracts runners from all over the World. With many coming from cooler climates such as Northern Europe and the UK, the heat can be very challenging, acclimatise here with us at RunintheSun. We have runners from all over the world training here for their first Ultra or Multi stage event. We train on the Perimetral an 85km mountain race held each year in March. You ca try a different trail everyday of your stay, there are so many it is hard to say which is the best trail run.
Taking a training camp with us, will help you acclimatise to the heat of the MDS or other multi stage event.
Multi Day Training Camps
A Multi-Day Training Camp gives you the opportunity to experience multi day ultra running, event preparation, on quiet unspoilt trails. Whether you are training for a specific multi-day race like Marathon De Sables (MDS), or the iconic Cape Wrath Ultra or simply looking for a training camp in an inspirational setting, this camp is for you.
This camp will enable you to develop your multi-day endurance, build your technique and general running performance.
Interval training is of paramount importance for all athletes to build endurance, speed and stride length. Accumulating time at specific exercise intensities applies a focused stress on your body. This stimulates your body to adapt and thus becomes ready for more stress.
Barranco del Infierno
A trail with 6000 steps, stunning scenery and views across the Costa Blanca. The trail takes about 2hrs 30mins, depending upon the exact route. The descent is quite hard on your quads but the ascent I found quite easy, as it does level off and then start again a number of times, thank goodness. We will be doing this again in Oct.
Amanda looking as fresh as when she started, 12hrs previously. Her last 20km was her fastest section of the course. Its all about getting the pace just right. Knowing the right pace is crucial, Amanda got it right and all the training paid off, a category win on her first attempt.
