    This was my second running holiday with Embrace, but my first in Portugal and it was fantastic. The variety of the sessions and routes were great – beautiful trails, challenging hills, track intervals, barefoot on the breach and lovely scenery, all with great coaches and likeminded individuals. I’m sure I’ll be back!

    This was my 3rd Embrace camp after having previously been to the Alps and the Pyrenees, and it undoubtedly lived up to the high standards set by the other camps. The coaches are fantastic and are focussed on making sure that everyone's individual needs are met - from training, nutrition and recovery, they ensure that everything is catered for, enabling the participants to get the most out of the week. Would recommend to runners/cyclists/triathletes of all backgrounds or abilities. Particular shout out for the incredible meals that the guys cook up every evening, they are always a real highlight of the week!

    I need not say much more than this was my fifth January running holiday - with each one perhaps better than the last. As ever, the accommodation, food, and especially coaching were outstanding. The coaches go above and beyond in everything they do, but their support and assistance when I had to fly home at short notice, midway through the holiday, demonstrates further the level of professional service they offer. See you next year!

    This was my second holiday with embrace- first one was a running holiday where they actually helped develop my love of cycling! The duathlon holiday was great again- well suited for varied abilities (we had a very varied group and everyone felt challenged and exhausted by the end but no one felt too initimidated by what they were tasked with!) The set up is great, organisation incredible and Graeme and Neil are welcoming and approachable! Already looking to plan my next holiday with them! Couldnt recommend more highly!

    Leave your egos and pretentiousness at home if you intend to join these guys for a holiday as you will be sorely out of place. Just by the tone of the website you know these are people that love what they do and want you to enjoy your time with them as much as they seem to enjoy our company. Despite not being a regular runner, more a cyclist who runs, it certainly felt like a holiday with a bit of running involved and when you find out that almost half of your fellow holiday makers are back for a another trip you know it can’t be so bad even if it looks a bit daunting up on the blackboard. All the actives are indeed optional yet I never felt that there was anything I couldn’t achieve; Al, G and Neal seemed to know exactly how to challenge each of us, setting goals that pushed us but were achievable. Already talking about returning next year for more early season sun and see if the other hills are better/worse than the ones we tackled.

    Brilliant week! The sessions are well designed and by the end of the week you can see a massive improvement! There was a variety of different running and cycling sessions that tested many attributes. Embrace were superb at looking after us and cook up a storm every single night whilst ensuring a social and super friendly atmosphere! I would highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to booking it again!

    My second Embrace holiday but the first in Portugal. I came for some warm(er) weather training ahead of a March marathon and the trip was everything I was hoping for. Accommodation excellent, a great mix of sessions (tempo intervals, track, hills, trails, ...even barefoot on the beach), superb food, and the company of like-minded runners. The coaches do a great job of catering to all abilities, and there's plenty of down time. All-in-all a great week.

    I attended the Duathlon holiday in the Algarve in Feb 2018. Neil, Graham and Kat were perfect hosts and coaches, providing race tips, coaching sessions and keeping us well fed on homecooked food. The local area is ideal for training; quiet with a variety of terrains (trail running, flat roads, hills, mountains) within easy reach. All sessions catered well for individual goals without overloading for the week, with plenty of downtime to chill out in between! Lagos itself has a couple of decent local restaurants and bars for any nights off.
