    What a great holiday. Double days, great food, a hot tub and all the beer you could drink. We had an amazing view from our room too which was an added bonus. The last day we ran up the Col D'aspin- fairly painful and steep, but good bragging rights. See you all again soon and thanks again for good times.

    My sixth Embrace Camp but my first outside Portugal…..and it won’t be my last! The varied training runs (including two Cols!!!), outstanding food and great company in the stunning setting of the Pyrenees was a winning combination. There was also plenty of chill out time in the hot tub in the afternoons, lots of games of bananagrams and despite a few rain showers we were able to sit outside our beautiful farmhouse for dinner every night! Thanks again Eric, Neil and Rach. Looking forward to the Alps next year. Best running holiday in France! Angela Campbell

    This is my third year doing an embrace camp, and probably my favorite one to date. Having previously been on the Algarve triathlon camp twice, this was my first Iron distance camp. Luckily for me the camp is run with the same great organisation and enthusiasm and I enjoyed every minute of it. The cycling out here is amazing, access to fantastic swimming lake and great running all on the doorstep of a beautiful old french house. The only downside to the trip was some rain on a couple of days, but we countered this by lighting the fire inside and getting some quality recovery time in front of the fire. As always food was amazing and nutritious. I couldn't recommend highly enough the week to anyone preparing for a long distance race or just looking to put in some training/socializing in beautiful surrounds. Many thanks to all the coaches !

    This camp was exactly what I needed in the run up to my main event (IM Austria on 26 June). The combination of the three events was ideal, the standard of the fellow triathletes was excellent - pushed me hard enough - and the spirit of the camp was great, as ever with Embrace. This was my 5th Embrace holiday and I'll definitely be back for more.

    My big dream is to acheive an Ironman! So... after years of doing sprint triathlons I decided it was time to up the game. Being a big fan of the Algarve running camps, where better to get training and advice than with an Embrace Iron distance camp? I was totally nervous about this as I'm slow and where in running camp I can adapt I knew that bike rides could be more problematic. However, I had nothing to fear - the coaches were able to adapt training to all abilities and even to the weather. The setting was great, made for relaxing and socialising after training, and the food was amazing! I met some very inspiring people that week and after my 1st 1/2 Ironman this year I'll definitely be back for another camp to train for the full. I recommend this camp for anyone wanting to train for a middle / iron distance - I learnt loads about biking, running and open water swimming !

    Does exactly what it says on the tin; a great week of training with coaches who clearly know what they're talking about and push everyone to achieve things they may not have thought possible. The accommodation is in a secluded place which allows everyone to train hard and recover hard. I was pleased to see that recovery beers after a hard days training weren't frowned upon! Food is great - was disappointed to get home and have to plan all my own meals again. I'd definitely recommend to anyone doing a half or full Ironman & looking for a week away.

    Yet again, Embrace have delivered. A fantastic week of running in some beautiful surroundings. The setting, food, coaching and fellow runners made for a very enjoyable week. A perfect mix of running, relaxing and socialising with fun folk. Running holiday in France. Louise Malone

    I've enjoyed all my Embrace running holidays. Was definitely up for a new challenge. Loved the mix of training sessions in the spectacular setting of the pyrenees . And I really can say that I ran all the way up Col d'Aspin. All 12k of climb. And met a crowd of lovely runners, with a wide range of abilities and experience, who got to the top with me. That's the power of the skilful mix of training you get on these holidays. Pyrenees Running Holiday with Embrace Sports. Bernadette Lewis
