    Just returned from a week with embrace @ the novice tri camp. Great week, great weather, great coaching (I'm always learning). Great cycling routes and fab morning swims. All levels catered for. Will be back again soon. Thanks Neil and Chris for a great week.

    I booked my Embrace Camp to coincide with my first full distance Ironman in 2019. The Bolton Ironman fell 3 weeks after my return from the camp which meant the Embrace Camp would be my last big week of training. Embrace delivered 100%. I felt inspired at a time I might otherwise have started to burn out. I got home, tapered off my training and (in a massive shock to everyone, including myself) picked up third place in my age group. I will definitely be planning any big events in the future around an Embrace Camp. The gains were exponential and in a relaxed, friendly environment! Couldn't recommend highly enough!

    I had never thought to look for a holiday of this type until this year - my loss! This was my first trip and it was one of the best holidays I have ever had. I was in the middle of training for a marathon (having started the training cycle in July) and the weather in the UK had just started to turn so it was perfect timing to escape the cold and carry on in the lovely warm Algarve weather. Though my training had already been going well, the holiday still had a massive positive impact on my preparations, due to being able to genuinely recover between sessions, enjoy quality food, do the peripheral recovery exercises as guided by the coaches etc. - essentially living full time like an athlete for a week! We had a lovely group of people, of all abilities, and it was great to meet a bunch of strangers on day one and feel part of a group of good friends by the end of the week. Overall a really wonderful experience, one I intend to repeat many times!

    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!

    This was my 5th Embrace holiday & my 3rd time in Portugal & as all the previous times i really enjoyed it. The running routes were varied & scenic. The location is amazing. The coaches were really knowledgeable & supportive to all the group & they served up delicious food. I would highly recommend this trip.

    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.
