    18months after going on my first embrace holiday I was concerned this one would not live up to my first experience but that concern evaporated with minutes of meeting the coaches at the airport. Not only do the coaches know a lot about running but they take the time to get to know everyone on the holiday and understand what they want to get out of both the holiday and running in general. The accommodation and facilities are brilliant. The food they make is second to none. I am already try to decide which one to book for next year.

    An extension to summer, great people, training, and food! What more could you ask for a late season Triathlon camp and vacation. Can't say enough great things about the coaches and how well organized each day is. A great setting and variety of activities each day, with a good deal of thought about training volume and intensity to help everyone make the most of the week. The setting in Lagos is amazing - great accommodations, beautiful sunrise swims, coastal runs and some excellent cycling options throughout the entire camp. I'll be back for camp #10 in 2020

    This was my second holiday with Embrace Sports. First one was earlier this year (March). Loved the team, the group, the food, the overall atmosphere. Felt like it was made specially for me. I really enjoyed the trip and would highly recommend the trip. Can not wait for next time.

    I'd never been on a running holiday before and was also just recovering from shin splints so I was a bit nervous on the first day. But I had absolutely nothing to worry about! Every run is optional and there is plenty of time to recover and practice what is learnt during the brilliant strength & conditioning sessions. Each run was in a different beautiful location and you could take each one completely at your own pace. Everyone gets together again in the evenings for dinner and some drinks after a few hours of relaxation in the afternoon. We had a couple of nights out in the town as well as an optional bake off on one of the cloudy afternoons. By the end of the week, I felt like a much stronger runner, and came away with lots of tips on running form, nutrition, and training to put into practice back home. Can't wait to go back and I would highly recommend it to all runners!

    I knew after the first camp I'd be returning the following year and yet again I had such an amazing time and experience, and I'll be looking to join another next year. The number of repeat customers really says a lot about the quality of these holidays, and I can't recommend it enough. The coaches, the structure, the food and the like minded people you meet all makes for a an amazing holiday.

    I'd been looking to do a trip like this for a few years but something always got in the way. Having now come back from my first trip to Lagos, I really wish I'd done this sooner. It was a great week in a friendly and relaxed environment. I was able to run in such varied sessions in some beautiful locations and learn about how I can get better at this for the future. The food is fab and there's plenty of time to socialise with other fun likeminded people in an amazing location and with great weather. It's difficult to see what's not to like. Oh, and the beer is cheap too :-). I can't wait to go again.

    this is the 3rd time I have done this trip. It always lives up to expectations as being challenging and fun. The coaches are fab and I feel like I get private coaching as the ratio of coaches to clients is so good. I would recommend this to anyone as they cater for all ages and abilities.

    I don’t want to go on about the food too much because it was a running holiday after all but the food was AMAZING. Thank you so much Rachael, Rache, Chris, Chris, Neil and Andy. Specific dietary requirements were catered for with such grace and style! Beautiful apartments, lovely outdoor pool and a great location with beaches, shops and cafes nearby. The running is quite full-on and you may well have legs that get a bit sore and then not sore and then a bit sore again and so on. You just have to trust the process. There was a great variety of runs in different locations and we were very ably chauffeured around. Thank you so much Neil, Chris, Chris, Rachael, Rach and Andy.

    Just returned from my 3rd Embrace October running camp. Its like returning home on this trip and something I look forward to all year. The mixture of runs undertaken are stunning, diverse, challenging and rewarding. For me to be able to run by the sea is a special highlight. The food is amazing enabling us all to have the correct nutrition ahead of the next session. Recovery in the Algarve sunshine and resting by the pool means I felt ready to go for the next days' schedule. You certainly pack a lot in during the week the quantity of which I would never do at home but somehow my body managed it well. The coaches are extremely helpful and strength and conditioning sessions were an added bonus. Hope to be back again.
