Trail running


with Matt Dowse

Escolta Alta provides the idea location for trail running holidays and training trips in the beautiful Sierra Nevada and Alpujarra region of Southern Spain. We have teamed up with running guide Matt Dowse from Wild Thyme Trail Running to offer you guided running holidays and itineraries throughout the area.

Running days can range from 3-20miles, with as many days on the trail as you like. Dynamic rest days hiking in the hills can also be incorporated, allowing you to stretch out your legs whilst taking it slightly easier.

All bookings to be made with Escolta Alta by prior arrangement.

Matt is an experienced runner and passionate outdoor enthusiast. He has been running marathons and ultra-races for over 10 years, finishing 100 and 50 mile trail races along with numerous trail marathons and shorter distance races. Before moving to Spain Matt was working as a Ranger with the South Downs National Park Authority and is a keen and knowledgeable wildlife enthusiast. His marathon PB remains at an extremely frustrating 3:00.19. "Whether you’re looking to spend some time running through picturesque mountain scenery, or training hard for an upcoming race or challenge, there are trails and routes to suit every ability and ambition."
