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



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.

This camp is available all year long. From 2023 we will include a systems of “virtual controls”: O-Range (for Garmin watches). This way, you can run the courses at any moment, and get a signal from your watch when you reach the control!

In addition,

  • Colored control tapes (at some of the trainings) will be in the forest and regularly checked by our staff  between 15Jan2023 and 15Mar2023
  • Rest of year: tapes might still be there but this is not at all guaranteed. Virtual-controls systems will be available.

There are several permanent and organized (sportident) trainings for you to do the days before the event. You can book complete packages including accommodation but also maps only!
