    A great week and exceptional value. Lots of training and lots of (important) rest. You can push yourself as hard as you want, which is great as it caters for all abilities. The setting is spot on, accommodation has all you need, bike routes good and generally quiet roads, some demanding runs and some excellent sea swimming. The food is worth a special mention, the coaches cook and they do an amazing job - always more than enough food and really good quality. The guys really go out of their way to look after you and make sure you're enjoying it while pushing you to consider how far you can stretch yourself. Thanks for a great trip and hope to do another one in the future.

    Another amazing camp. I've done so many camps now I've lost count - I think this is my twelfth so that says it all really. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming and it feels like one big running family. The coaches are so knowledgeable and are always keen to help you to improve your running. The food is fantastic. Great value for money. Love it - definitely coming back again πŸ™‚

    I've become an Embrace regular - as I love these trips. And I've now done Marathon camp twice while targeting a half-marathon. Both times I've got massive benefit - the coaches tailor each session so that they still work for those of us without 20 mile long runs in the schedule. It's always great to see familiar faces - and to make new people welcome. Fantastic food, scenic location, good company, training that adapts to the group, the weather, and all the niggles we bring - definitely 5 stars.

    Another fantastic week! These guys never fail to deliver: varied training for all abilities; knowledgeable, informative and friendly coaches; fantastic food and great accommodation. I wasn't training for a marathon, but it didn't stop me having a very enjoyable week and getting fitter in the process. I shall be back!

    Another great week of riding on good roads with great company from people I've never met before. The accommodation and food is superb and the whole trip is a good mix of training in the day and enjoying the food and drink in the evening.

    Having been on two running holidays previously, this was my first Triathlon week with Embrace and it didn’t disappoint. The location and accommodation was absolutely perfect, coupled with a great bunch of like minded people, fabulous food and the support, knowledge and encouragement of the coaches made for a fun training week. A blend of challenging sea / pool swimming, running and cycling in beautiful locations, added to some relaxation time before an end of week challenge provided the perfect holiday experience. Thank you Neil, Graeme & Chris for another epic week, already looking forward to Embrace Trip number 4.

    I really enjoyed my week with Embrace and felt I got a lot out of it. The routes were superb - town, woodland, clifftop, track and of course the hills, which really pushed everyone, as illustrated by the fact that only 3 out of the 19 on the camp did not need an afternoon nap. It was a very mixed group in terms of age and pace, so anyone in marathon training should be able to handle it. What surprised me most was that after an intense week of training I could still run 20 miles on the last day at what for me was a decent pace. And of course everything was laid on, including transport, food, wine and beer. This was my first time. I hope there will be a second.

    Another brilliant week away with the Embrace team, this was my fifth holiday in two years. Once again training, accommodation, food and company were all excellent. Cannot fault it in any way. Highly recommend and will definitely be going back for another trip

    This was my ninth Embrace holiday and once again it was an amazing week. What Graeme, Neil and the rest of the coaches is provide a perfect running holiday. Every attention to detail has been thought of from the transport, accommodation, the wonderful food they cook, great training routes, to the fantastic location in the Algarve. The social side is also a real bonus. I’ve made some wonderful friends over the years through these holidays and it’s great to be able catch up with them and at the same time make new friends. These holidays are such a friendly and supportive environment that I would thoroughly recommend them to any runner.
