Ultra Trail Spain welcomes running and walking groups who fancy ditching the sangria in favour of an active holiday in and around the picturesque Moclín area of Granada.

Moclín, known locally as the last bastion of the Alhmbra Palace following Spain’s conquest with the Moors in the 14th and 15th centuries, is an undiscovered gem and a runners’ paradise. There are miles of winding trails, narrow gorges, mountain tracks and stunning views.

Experienced ultra runners, Steve Farnham and Sarah Whittington, organise comprehensive holidays for runners and walkers seeking to experience traditional, rural Spain. Guided runs and walks are tailored to guests’ personal abilities and goals, with the opportunity to sample local culture and history through inclusive holidays.

Steve says: “In discovering the trails around Moclín, our guests experience breathtaking views of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, the unspoilt geology, and the beautiful weather of this part of Spain. It’s simply an outdoor lover’s paradise. We are delighted to share the trails with both individuals and groups seeking escapism and a holiday to remember.”

Led by Sarah, a qualified personal trainer and successful ultra runner, these intense, focused holidays offer targeted training within the inspirational surroundings of Moclín.
