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 in one of the areas for a short time driving, drive a bit more to get some good maps from the neighboring area, or split the accommodation into two periods to get the best out of each area. You decide!
About the Alicante terrain, Guardamar offers sweet sand-dune terrains next to the Mediterranean. Alicante is 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 area, and a 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 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 such as Cehegín.

Terrains in Alicante are next to La Marina, mostly coastal sand dunes, pine forest, very fast and detailed.
Terrains in Murcia have been used for Wold Cup 2014; are rough, with pine forest and semi-open, detailed, plenty of valleys, spurs, gullies and gentle climbs.
