    AMAZING holiday so different to the others and with the uphill training it is a great way to increase strength. The finale was a climb up alp de huez which really was a once in a life time opportunity! As always the guys were great and the team was amazing - whether your new or returning ... you'll be part of #teamembrace and a life time customer after any of the holidays

    I had an amazing week with embrace! The surroundings where great for running, hills, flat. Great nature. The homemade food by the coaches was also great. I loved all the trainings, the hills are hard but make you an stronger runner. Also the stretch sessions where awesome. Ii only have good things to say about the holiday. The coaches are great, very approachable. Coming back soon!

    I had a fantastic holiday in the Pyrenees. The sun shone all week long and the views from the rustic farmhouse were stunning! We ran in a variety of beautiful locations, including a long run on a woodland trail, 1k reps in a park, a steady 10k lake run surrounded by snow-capped mountains, finishing with the 12k Col D’Aspin uphill road run. There was a complete mix of abilities and experience, but the coaches tailored each run to suit everyone and there was great camaraderie within the group.

    This box is far too small for me to go into too much detail, however suffice to say that the inaugural duathlon camp should definitely become part of the regular Embrace camp schedule. Top class training, delicious food, breathtaking scenery and amazing company...

    The running holiday in The Pyrenees is a must! I can't recommend it highly enough. The training is hard, but fun, the coaches are knowledgable but very friendly and the food is fabulous!

    Great pick up at the airport all trouble free. Fabulous French farmhouse with ample rooms, bathrooms and additional facilities. Perfect rides all with coaches. Exceptional food combined with a focused but also relaxed atmosphere.

    Had a fantastic holiday in the Pyrenees. Have made some great friends and have learnt so much about myself and gained so much confidence along the way. The food is amazing and there is a lot of it!!! I have learnt how to stretch and recovery properly and I absolutely can't wait for the next one. Big thank you to all the coaches

    My first run camp which met all my expectations and more. A great training week in some beautiful settings with friendly and knowledgeable Coaches. Great food, great accommodation, great people, great weather and beer and wine on tap makes a happy customer. And the Col D'Aspin run challenge rounded off the week perfectly. Looking forward to my next Embrace trip already. Thank you for the memories.

    This was my first ever training holiday and I wasn’t disappointed! Each day offered something different whether it was beautiful coastal or woodland trails, or the tough endurance session of running up the mountain in Monchique. A fantastic group of people to train with and the coaches were really knowledgeable, great motivators and amazing chefs! I couldn’t recommend it more – the sense of achievement at the end of each day and the perfect balance of training hard and recovery time was spot on! I will definitely be back!

    Still buzzing from my third running holiday with Embrace! Fantastic training location, a real variety of sessions designed to cater for all abilities. The coaches love what they do, they think of everything so you don't have to, they are keen a give advice and also cook some fantastic meals to set you up for the next day of training. Can't wait to go back!

    As a repeat offender (this was my third Embrace Iron Distance Holiday) nothing disappointed... Great coaches, Great food and a fanatastic area to train in. A few new venues and sessions kept things fresh and there's always something new to learn. Definitely the best way to prepare for the start of the season!

    Can't help but simply reiterate everything I said last year. 2nd time around is even better because coaches remember you and there's no anxiety. The program, places and faces are familiar so you get in ready to rip into a great volume week of training. Plus, you have benchmarks to use. Simply said, these guys rock! From last year: "above and beyond one of the best holiday and training experiences! The fact that it could be both is incredible. The coaches are super knowledgeable and they have structured the camp perfectly to meet all of your desires. It’s well conceived so that you can manage what seems like an overwhelming amount of training first, but since it is so well organized and designed, you are pushing your limits beyond what you believed you are capable of. It helps that once you arrive, you are completely in the hands of professionals. You don’t have to fret about any decisions, which makes the holiday part of it all the better. The accommodations and food are top notch. Have more confidence and more knowledge know in a few days here than what would otherwise takes years to accumulate. Can’t wait for the next one!"

    This was my third Embrace Holiday, and definitely not my last! I have loved each Embrace camp I've been on, but this is my favourite so far. It was my first iron distance camp, and I'm so glad I took the plunge to try this longer distance training. I felt right at home in the crowd of athletes and coaches, and thoroughly enjoyed all of the sessions. The food was even better than I remember it from previous holidays, and the weather was perfect for triathlon training. The coaches also went above and beyond to help me when I got some mechanical difficulties with my bike! Thanks again, guys! I'll be back!

    'Camp #4 with the embrace guys and another great camp. They continue to strike the right mix of good running and training, great runs, but as importantly a relaxed, friendly and communal atmosphere - I enjoy the cooking, chat and evening drinks as much as the runs. Always a nice bunch of people in attendance. Good one boys!

    This was my first embrace training camp but it definitely won’t be my last! From the coaches to the food to the accommodation to the scenery – everything was amazing. Plus the The guys really know their stuff – and being back for a few days now and completing my first few training sessions back in the UK, I am already feeling fitter and stronger – all thanks to the Embrace guys! Additionally, the team (and the other guests on the week) were all keen to share their experiences of long distance races, and gave plenty of tips for the big day. I feel way more confident about my first iron distance race in a couple of months. Would definitely recommend to anybody – they definitely cater to all abilities. Will be back!

    Great environment, coaches, training plan and food!! This camp made more than 24 hours flight worth it!!! Awesome experience, with great tips and coaching; when I saw the overall program, I was not very sure I was going to be able to complete it, as impressed and happy I could be…. I ended up packing all my stuff on Saturday not only with many kilometer s completed but with the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment that I completed every single training. Very happy I was part of this camp, and looking forward to training harder in order to complete my IM distance later in the year!! Kuddos Embrace team!!
