    Comfortable accommodation, great food, knowledgeable coaches, good company, a wide range of run sessions at whatever pace works for you, cheap beer and no need to think for a week - what else could you wish for?

    I went on the marathon training camp in February and had an absolutely awesome time. A week of training beyond what I’d think possible anywhere else, with a backdrop fantastic scenery. The logistics are all well organised and the daily schedule is carefully thought out, and it’s amazing to see what everyone achieved. Coaches helped everyone get the most out of sessions and cultivated a really positive atmosphere. The setup with accommodation and the food (so much food!!) was perfect and I still came back feeling relaxed despite all the training. Would recommend to absolutely everyone.

    This was our first running holiday and we weren't disappointed. We had no idea what to expect but the Embrace team took care of us superbly. The training was varied, fun, challenging and suitable for everyone and the motivation and support we all received was great to see. Throughout the whole week the food was tasty and plentiful. It was a fantastic week made even better by beautiful weather, surroundings and new friends. We would highly recommend Embrace and hope to book another week with them next year.

    Another great holiday with Embrace, this time with a few new venues which was fantastic. Don't be worried about this being a "marathon" week. We weren't anywhere near marathon distance training and it was fine.

    This is my 5th Embrace Camp and 3rd in Lagos. The Triathlon camp is a great way to warm up after a long cold winter of training. Once again it was a nice sized group with fun like minded people, coupled with the perfect level of training and amazing food. The Coaches have a fountain of knowledge, are always on hand and happy to help and provide a well organised schedule each day. Lagos is an amazing setting, the accommodation is perfect, the sunrise swim views are spectacular, the coastal runs are scenic and there is a fantastic array of cycling options and routes. The variety and volume of training is well thought out and caters for all abilities throughout the week. Looking forward to getting back out on camp number 6.

    This was my 6th Embrace Algarve Running Holiday which speaks for itself, with this being equally enjoyable as the previous Visits and was brilliantly delivered by Neil and Chris. The running camp is an excellent opportunity for quality varied training in an amazing location amongst the company of like minded people. The approachability, enthusiasm and support of the Embrace team is always a key highlight for me, as they welcome everyone of all abilities, creating a relaxed friendly atmosphere generating a great training experience. The food & accommodation were superb as always !

    First time on a running holiday, really enjoyed the experience. Great company, great food and accommodation. The structure allows a big range of abilities to benefit from the program but whatever your ability you felt included. Will repeat again

    Another (this was my 4th) amazing Embrace holiday with a great bunch of like-minded friendly athletes and supportive, experienced coaches. I really appreciated that the coaches were flexible with the training schedule to let me and my husband do duathlon training (which basically meant we had a lie in whilst the triathlon nutters went for a morning dip in the ocean!). It was a perfect holiday to focus on training, recovery and eating well in the run up to my duathlon event at the end of the week. We'll be back as soon as this Covid-19 let's us out of the country again!!
