    This was my first running holiday and I was a bit nervous about my atletic ability. But that was definetly not necessary, these running holidays are fit for every type of athlete and the coaches are always happy to give advice! I pushed myself much harder than I ever did and knocked out my first 110 km-week! Eventhough you are sometimes running 2 x a day, thanks to all the relaxation at the pool & the amazing food (really best food ever!!) you are fully refreshed the next morning. I also met a lot of great, positive people with a love for running. This was one of the best holidays I ever had & I will be back next year! 😀

    The promise of sunshine and warmth in November is a real healthy tonic. Even though I was not feeling like Pheidippides at the start of the week , the weather and awesome food from the instructors striving to out do each other in the kitchen soon had there effect. We ran on a mix of terrains with athletes of all running abilities and ages. This melting pot was all catered for in Embraces training programme with you feeling very quickly a group member. Each year Embrace make subtle improvements in professionalism which are noticeable giving great value.

    I’ve done quite a few training camps & sports holidays over the years, but this was my first time with Embrace, and I can thoroughly recommend them. Accommodation was great, food was delicious, a fun crown of people, training is a serious as you want it to be, whilst still being really sociable, & plenty of beer & wine always available. The coaches are all excellent. Whether you’re a novice or a top end athlete, want to push yourself, or just enjoy some recreational exercise, the coaches are knowledgeable, encouraging, always keen to help and accommodate to everyone’s specific needs.

    I thoroughly recommend this running camp. It's a great way to challenge yourself and you'll learn new things to bring back home! There's a great mix of training and some beautiful runs, tasty food and lots of social time too. I look forward to returning next year to kick start my winter training again!

    My first ever sports related holiday and I can honestly say it won't be my only one. I learnt soo much from the coaches and other "holiday makers" alike and took some inspiration home to do some more interval training and get myself out on my bike (which wasn't my strongest activity whilst there). I totally over-faced myself after having 5 swimming lessons prior to going out and only pootering in my local lanes (which are very flat) on the bike, so this was a lot to take in. Luckily you can pick and choose which activities you take part in and I was able to switch to a couple of running sessions (my comfort zone) when I chickened out of the tri activities 🙂 So if you're weaker on the tri-side and just want a taster the combination of both camps in situ on the same dates works really well!

    These guys are pretty special! I went out there on my own and had a blast - Fantastic group, great coaches, delicious food and plentiful wine and beer! I am an average runner, not overly serious, but was wanted a break where I could be active and have some down time as well, with a sociable and fun group. The trip delivered in spades. Book it and see it for yourself!

    This was my first running holiday and it was a fantastic experience. I never expected to go on so many of the runs or be able to run twice in one day! So it was really great to see how much I could manage. The variety of the runs was great and the coaches took us to some fantastic locations with a variety of terrain and often amazing views too. The food was absolutely brilliant too. I had recently made changes to my diet for health reasons and they accommodated superbly. The accommodation was lovely and in a really convenient spot. Great to have a washing machine in the apartment too! I went with two friends from my running club and all three of us said we would love to do it again, it was a really good balance of running, doing our own thing and socializing with the other runners

    My second trip to the Embrace camp in Portugal - and will definitely be back again! Fun sessions (where I definitely felt like I was working hard!), lovely people and delicious food.

    This will be my 4th camp (2 running & 2 Triathlon) with Embrace and that should say it all. Facilities tick all the boxes, food is faultless, coaches are knowledgeable & approachable & the training its self is ideal. Defiantly won't be disappointed.
