CHICLANA ATHLETICS CAMP ****
Our preferred accommodation is the Barossa Park Hotel, situated at the famous Playa de Barrosa. It offers an amazing garden with pools, pool bar and direct access to the beach. This is a high-quality hotel, well used to hosting training camps and catering for athletes from all levels and sports.
The hotel features an almost 50m (leisure) outdoor pool, an indoor pool, sauna area and well-equipped gym. There is plenty of entertainment in the evenings with shows, bar, cinema and games room, theatre and a large screen TV showing sport events.
The buffet restaurant has become our favourite hotel restaurant in Spain; it is truly amazing so make sure to burn off those extra calories. We recommend at least one extra long run!
During holidays, Barossa Park also offers activities for children. This makes it a great hotel for active parents that want to enjoy training while their children have fun in the kids activity centre.
The training facility in Chiclana is of high quality and offers a new 400m track, jumping and throwing options, a 1km off-road warming up track, an indoor gym, treadmills and pretty much all possible training materials needed.
Some training camp highlights could include:
- Tough hill repeats
- Recovery, technique and stretch sessions of the beach
- Aqua gym at hotel
- Long runs along the Paseo and through the pine woods
The beach is a classic for morning runs while the relatively flat and quiet roads allow for long runs. In the vicinity of the hotel there are many beautiful running trails along the cliffs or through the pine woods.
Running along the cliffs
The Novo Sancti Petri area in Chiclana is famous for its Playa de Barrosa; truly one of the most beautiful beaches in Andalusia.
