Dates: Sat 2nd – Sat 9th February 2019 Location: Lagos, Portugal Price:...February 27, 2016I've been on running holidays and now I've changed to triathlon holidays and I can say both are brilliant. If you're about to do your first tri, this is the best holiday there is to help give you knowledge and confidence to do it. The whole experience is wonderful - the coaches are very experienced and know how to push you but know your limits so you can completely trust them when they say 'run here, cycle there'. You finish the holiday having pushed your boundaries in a totally supported environment. On top of that, the food is amazing and the people you meet are like-minded and I've made many good friends here. I can't recommend Embrace enough. Go for it. 🙂
Dates: Sat 2nd – Sat 9th February 2019 Location: Lagos, Portugal Price:...February 27, 2016I'm not a youngster and was quite worried about joining others on this type of holiday, but I needn't have worried. I've been through quite a traumatic year and needed to restart my training and this week certainly did that. It was hard, it was fun, it was really informative both from the coaches and other athletes. I really 'enjoyed' myself, I was pushed to the extreme and it's amazing what you can do when you are pushed, but it was great, and I can certainly see myself booking into another week again.
Dates: Saturday 18th May to Saturday 25th May 2019 Location: Pyrenees, France...February 26, 2016I've been on a few of these trips now so felt compelled to write a review here. I joined a group where i knew some and there were a lot i didn't know. I was immediately welcomed , Graeme and Neil were great hosts and the rest of the team were also very friendly They repeatedly went out of their way to give us a great holiday. Cycling routes are truly awesome with great backup and insightful training tips. Im an experienced cyclist but learnt so much from the team there. I would highly recommend these trips to anyone - great value and excellent company!
Dates: Saturday 18th May to Saturday 25th May 2019 Location: Pyrenees, France...February 26, 2016I have been going on Embrace trips to France and Portugal for the last 7 years. From the moment you get off the plane you are in safe, experience hands. The venues are always stunning, the cycling is always epic what ever your cycling experience, the food and facilities are always very good. Infact I'm going back again this year to the Alps as I enjoyed it so much last year. Embrace have a high number of return guests, its easy to understand why.
Dates: Sat 16th – Sat 23rd 2018 Location: Lagos, Portugal Price: £715...February 26, 2016Great training holiday with like-minded people, great location and a good programme. Early morning sea swims were (ahem) refreshing, and training across the three disciplines was pitched just right, meals out (and meals in!) and the vineyard visit were a nice change. Great advice from the coaches – from the sea swim ‘ attack the waves’ to the run failings ‘run more often’ which worked a treat, to the mental challenge/ Ironman spirit ‘the body can do it, the head just needs to tell it’. A great week with good steps in the Ironman journey and good friends made.
Dates: Sat 16th – Sat 23rd 2018 Location: Lagos, Portugal Price: £715...February 25, 2016I've been to 4 different tri camps with embrace sports and each time was a great experience. Great coaches, great food, awesome friends. You can't go wrong with these guys. Worth the trip overseas.
Dates: Sat 26th January – Sat 2nd February 2019 Location: Lagos, Portugal...February 22, 2016This was my fifth Embrace holiday and I've booked my sixth already. I cannot recommend highly enough, do it!
Dates: Sat 26th January – Sat 2nd February 2019 Location: Lagos, Portugal...February 22, 2016This was my fourth Embrace camp (other three were all tri camps) and it was a huge revelation: confidence-boosting, technically educative, physically challenging in all the right ways and a great pleasure to be among fellow runners. Will be back for more!
Dates: Sat 2nd – Sat 9th February 2019 Location: Lagos, Portugal Price:...February 20, 2016This was my 3rd trip with Embrace and didn't fail to live up to expectations. As more of a cyclist than anything else, my previous trips were in the French Pyrenees and this was my first trip Lagos. With less of a cycling focus, I was forced out of my comfort zone and to literally dive in at the deep end. Organisation was slick and forced me to work on my weaknesses. The formula is simple; work hard but enjoy yourself and it definitely works for me. Behind it all are great coaches who clearly enjoy what they do and that's the real difference. Boundaries were pushed, PBs set, mountains conquered, bake-offs judged, kegs emptied, vast amounts of food eaten and promises to come back were made to be kept. Thanks again guys
Dates: Sat 26th January – Sat 2nd February 2019 Location: Lagos, Portugal...February 19, 2016This was my third Embrace holiday, and certainly won't be my last. Everything from the food, accommodation, location, transfers, and especially the coaching was outstanding. I achieved more than I thought possible in a week of running, while also having a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
