    Absolutely brilliant! The triathlon camp was exactly what I hoped for. I was pushed hard but still enjoyed every second. The coaches were really supportive and knowledgeable and made the whole week really fun. The whole group were so friendly and approachable, and and I generally just had a fantastic time. I came home feeling loads fitter after only a week, and motivated and well-advised to improve my training.

    This was my first Embrace holiday and I will hopefully be booking another for next year! The resort was fantastic and the staff were amazing. The level of difficulty to the activities was well-judged so I felt challenged but not overwhelmed. The food was excellent and I particularly appreciated the porridge in the morning.

    This was my first time on a running holiday and it was a lot of fun! The coaches and the other athletes are all really nice and social. The scenery is absolutely superb and the weather was absolutely perfect all week. The training is a nice mix of different things to do and was manageable even though I wasn’t in the best shape at the start!

    Great holiday, started the holiday recovering from a knee op and the coaches put no pressure on to run but advised how to approach it and I ran 40+ miles in the week without any pain. Thoroughly recommend any Embrace holiday.

    Thank you so much for such a brilliant experience at the triathlon camp. As a pretty novice multi-sporter this was a fantastic experience. I learnt so much and challenged myself in so many ways. I've done a couple of Embrace run holidays before but this surpassed all expectations I had. Great accommodation, coaches, facilities. I can't wait to come back!

    Just back from another fabulous embrace holiday!!! I have done running camps before but this was my first tri camp... I was not disappointed! Fabulous group of fellow sporting enthusiasts, wonderful and encouraging coaches and a fun, well thought out schedule for the week's training. If you're wondering whether or not to book it, GET IT BOOKED! You'll not be disappointed! They cater for a range of abilities and are so encouraging!! I've learnt so much on my week away. Can't wait to book my next embrace holiday!!

    Wow! Had the most amazing week in Portugal with Embrace Sports. It was a challenging but equally rewarding week. We were exposed to a variety of terrains and the scenery was just stunning. The food was amazing and nutritious ensuring we were ready for the next session. Met some lovely people and made great friends. Hope to be back again.

    As a first timer to a running training camp I had no idea what to expect, but this trip exceeded all my expectations. Sessions were ideal for any ability and really made a difference to my fitness. Food was great, everyone was really friendly and the weather was perfect. Will hopefully be back for more!

    This is my 3rd Embrace running holiday and I am already planning my 4th. Everything about the holiday is fantastic - the food, accomodation, running locations, coaches, and other runners! If you are even thinking about signing up I would encourage you to stop thinking about it and just book in! You won't regret it!

    Returning for my fourth (?) trip to Embrace in Lagos, this week was designed to set me up for the Birmingham Half Marathon the week after returning home and did the trick perfectly. Each day is a total contrast to the previous one, so you're always switched on and raring to go. And smiling with it. The track day is about as different from my normal running as you can get. I'm rubbish at 800m but pretty decent at 200m. Who knew! Highlights; Killer Pool Champ. Lowlight; falling twice, cracking a rib, but getting up and getting on with it. That's what Embrace does to you. Makes you better, stronger, happier and a champion. Here's to the next trip.

    This was my first Embrace holiday, and it won't be my last. I was worried i'd be the slowest person there, but there were plenty of others about my pace, and I never felt out of my depth. I pushed myself harder than ever before - especially on those hills - but that's what its all about! Fingers crossed it pays off in my next race.

    This was my second Embrace holiday, and again it didn't disappoint. The location was stunning, which meant amazing runs along the beautiful coastline and through woodlands. The Embrace team are very professional, run very good holidays and are amazing chefs 🙂 Already booked up my next holiday for next year!

    This was my first Embarace holiday, and I really enjoyed it. Run much more than I would ver do at home, and was really challenged to do so. The support and encouragement from others was fantastic. I was concerned I would be too old and too slow but I wasn't at all. Also , the food and accommodation were both great.

    This was my first holiday with Embrace Sports. I really enjoyed the trip. The detailed training plan and variety of running routes challenged me and encouraged me to push beyond my limits. I would highly recommend the trip!

Had a great weeks training and made some great friends, Neil and the team were fantastic hosts and the training was varied to cover different sessions and for all abilities. Food was fantastic and plentiful. If you love running then this is a must.

    Possibly the most fun I've had in 10 consecutive days! An absolutely awesome holiday, really well structured to introduce us to Pyrenees climbing and descending and building our confidence as the holiday went on to then tackle Tourmalet on the last day. Loved every minute of it. Some great cycling and some great fun had with a great group of people. Can't wait for my next Embrace holiday, you guys just keep on delivering!
