    This was my first Embrace holiday and I absolutely loved it. Everything was brilliantly organised - the schedules were great, with varied run routes and sessions. The apartments were modern, really spacious and clean, and the food was amazing (as a vegetarian I had some of the best meals I've ever eaten here!). The coaches were all incredibly friendly and so helpful throughout the whole week, and there was a great social side to the holiday too. Despite there being a mixture of abilities within the running group, everyone was challenged and pushed that bit further. Whilst being individually challenged, everyone also really encouraged each other and there was a huge sense of teamwork in all of the sessions. The sessions varied from track, some brutal but amazing hills, woodland trails and coastal runs. I surprised myself by how much I enjoyed all the runs, but also by how much I pushed myself. The knowledge of all the coaches was really helpful and they were always on hand to chat or answer any questions, as well as providing advice and guidance. I would highly recommend this camp, and really looking forward to booking another Embrace holiday soon!

    I have been on a few Embrace holidays and this was the best yet. A great mix of people. Lots of tough and varied running sessions. And a good opportunity to explore the beautiful coastline. The Embrace team are clearly passionate about what they do, and are happy to accommodate people's needs

    Thank you to the guys and gals of Embrace! A great, fun week of training (and eating!) in the Algarve. Excellent, supportive coaches, beautiful running and riding routes, stunning sunrise swims and the most delicious food. Each day is excellently organised and they cater for all abilities/situations. These guys really know their stuff and seem to have nailed a magic formula to make you feel at ease, comfortable but also work hard!

    Having just completed my second Embrace Tri Camp and the first in Portugal I would have no hesitation in recommending home to anyone. Great fun , well designed training programme and catering for all abilities. The coaches are all very capable and the groups were split if needed to ensure everyone was challenged but still had fun. Your abilities o matter how good or how inexperienced was no barrier to participation in every session. Will be booking again without doubt. Thank you

    Not sure I need to say too much more than this was my 11th visit to the Algarve with Embrace. That must be a bit boring you may think but no the running locations are amazing, the support from the coaches brilliant and dynamics of each group have made each holiday different and memorable. One notable thing this time was the range of different dietary needs that were catered for, it's always been good but this time there seemed to be about six variations of each meal without reducing quality. If you are a runner with or without dietary needs then this the holiday for you.

    A variety of training sessions - track, hill, lap and interval tailored to all abilities. Quantity and quality of food so you will definitely not go hungry and the apartments were modern and clean.

    My 1st running holiday with Embrace in Lagos, Portugal, and it won’t be my last! Total of 27 in the group including 6 coaches, everyone got on really well, lots of laughter, the majority had been on Embrace holidays before. The schedule was well organised with different runs every day, track session, coastal routes, beach runs, hill run, intervals and more. Free time in the afternoons to relax and do your own thing in beautiful surroundings. The coaches prepared the evening meals and the food was superb, catering for all dietary requirements. I recommend this holiday to anyone who enjoys running regardless of ability, from park runner to marathon runner, this holiday will not disappoint. I had a wonderful holiday, came home feeling great and will be booking another running holiday with Embrace next year.

    This was my first running holiday with Embrace (first of many,hopefully). Really enjoyed it , the running sessions are varied, the complex is awesome but for me the amazing fresh food cooked everyday by the coaches was the highlight of the trip. Its great value and I will be back !
