Welcome to the camp Alicante/Murcia, based in the legendary Guardamar!

ALICANTE & MURCIA

OVERVIEW

At this camp we include all the possible training options in the South East of Spain, with two headquarters: Guardamar (Alicante area) and Bullas (Murcia area). During your camp, you can just stay at one of the areas with short time driving, drive a bit more to get some good maps from the neighbor area, or split the accommodation in two periods to get the best of each area. You decide!

About the Alicante terrain, Guardamar offers sweet sand-dune terrains next to the Mediterranean. Alicante is a classical. This camp is quite unique as it is ‘step out the door’ of the bungalows and start orienteering. The camping we recommend has well equipped bungalows, a fitness areas and spa, all on the map! Sun-O owns the last versions (together with the local O-club) of the sand dunes in Guardamar, which are yearly updated.

In Murcia you can enjoy with a demanding terrain with many details and moderate climbing. Among the most popular places, you have the opportunity to run in Coto Maravillas (World Cup 2014 terrain) and some cool sprint maps as Cehegín. If you want to visit the Murcia coast as well, you won’t be dissapointed with the nice areas in Aguilas, Calabardina, Mazarrón…

  • Colored control tapes will be in the forest and regularly checked by our staff  between 15Jan2022 and 15Mar2022
