15th - 22nd January 2016 Embark on a unique and challenging running experience at Club La Santa and Lanzarote. The people behind the successful Salomon trail tour and Club La Santa has made a more fun, healthier and tougher running week with nature in focus and the harsh, rough and fascinating nature of Lanzarote as bases and background.
Throughout the week there will be opportunity to test and experience the latest equipment, talk with other passionate trail runners, get tips on training and technique - and not least; get your heart rate up and smile when you fight your way through the surprisingly varied landscape of Lanzarote. The trailcamp is for the you who want a fun and different running experience and you dont have to a world champion to participate!The week is both for the experienced trail runner who want to prepare for this year's competitions, and for the less experienced runner who seeks new challenges. Running on forest trails, gravel roads and'singletrails' is far healthier and more fun than running on hard asphalt.
You will be inspired by nature, experience a far greater presence and your muscles and tendons work more varied. In short: Trailrunners smile much more!
When we dont run, you can enjoy more than 30 free sports facilities, good weather, free lectures / workshops and the good atmosphere at Club La Santa.
The routes will vary in length each day to offer different levels of difficulty. You will have many hours in the saddle with a relatively low intensity, but there will also be time for other activities. During the week, there will be seminars/talks on how to continue your training when you return home and other subjects such as nutrition. Besides that, we will have other social activities and at the end of each week, we will have a celebratory dinner. During the long rides there will be stops for sandwiches and refreshments where you can take in the beautiful views. If numbers dictate, the programme will be amended to offer shorter rides than those advertised, but will still cover the same areas and terrain.
