BARBATE SUN-O CAMP

Sun-O is an orienteering club/company which has been organizing training camps professionally for 20 years in Spain and other countries.

This is Sun-O signature camp and the most visited one, far South in Andalusia, with more than 400 permanent controls and ca. 32 sq kms of varied and gentle sand dune terrain, most of it very recently made or reviewed by our cartographers. This camp is quite unique as it is ‘step out the door’ of the apartment and start orienteering. The weather conditions are mostly mild, prices very competitive. Apart from forest terrains, this part of Andalusia has multiple white villages, superb for Sprint orienteering!

Terrains are generally fast to very fast, with lots of details, flat and hilly, sand dunes and pines, mixed with some low bushes, especially near the coast.

The sprint maps are in fantastic Andalusian white villages, often challenging with narrow streets and corners, low in traffic.

Do not miss the Barbate Sun-O Cup in “La Breña” with a very interesting format!

At this camp Sun-O includes 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…

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.
