    ‘Camp #4 with the embrace guys and another great camp. They continue to strike the right mix of good running and training, great runs, but as importantly a relaxed, friendly and communal atmosphere – I enjoy the cooking, chat and evening drinks as much as the runs. Always a nice bunch of people in attendance. Good one boys!

    5 out of 5 Amazing experience with unexpected extras

    A fantastic experience and despite being a returning runner I enjoyed new opportunities this time inc. a run up Montchique mountain and some ocean swimming to watch the sunrise. Some spectacular sessions sharing with incredible people and staff – motivation to improve for next time! 🙂

    Still buzzing from my third running holiday with Embrace! Fantastic training location, a real variety of sessions designed to cater for all abilities. The coaches love what they do, they think of everything so you don’t have to, they are keen a give advice and also cook some fantastic meals to set you up for the next day of training. Can’t wait to go back!

    This was my first ever training holiday and I wasn’t disappointed! Each day offered something different whether it was beautiful coastal or woodland trails, or the tough endurance session of running up the mountain in Monchique. A fantastic group of people to train with and the coaches were really knowledgeable, great motivators and amazing chefs!

    I couldn’t recommend it more – the sense of achievement at the end of each day and the perfect balance of training hard and recovery time was spot on! I will definitely be back!

    This was my second time on an Algarve Running Holiday with Embrace and it won’t be my last!

    The coaches are awesome athletes and top class chefs too. They also drive you around to all the great run locations and sort out all the logistics, meaning that all you need to do is sleep, eat, run, repeat! And chill out by the pool 🙂

    It’s a great way to spend a week in the sun, training hard but also eating plenty of great food and enjoying the company of like minded people.

    Thanks again guys!

    Another fantastic Embrace training camp for the Catt Family. Last time we came along I was six months pregnant and this time we brought our daughter along with the running buggy. I can’t tell you how amazingly supportive and accommodating everyone was – the coaches were fantastic and the fellow campers were all so friendly and welcoming to our little family. We managed to combine the best of both – holiday and running! Our daughter completely loved it and made lots of new friends – a complete success and we will definitely be back again. Oh, and the food is great, accommodation superb and it’s just a pleasure to spend a week in the company of like-minded individuals. Thank you!

    5 out of 5 I'll be back again!

    This was my second time on this training holiday and. yes, I’d go back again! This is a fantastic area to train in – there is a good variety of terrain to run on (hilly coastal tracks, woodland trails, beach, boardwalk etc) and the coaches ensure that all are used to have maximum impact on training. The training week is well structured and supplemented by wonderful food (the coaches should be on Masterchef!) and plenty of opportunities for recovery, so enables everyone to achieve a lot more than they thought they were capable of. A great week – highly recommended!

    When u make some decisions based on google search there is always place for some uncertainty and mistake. Luckily Emrace Sport appeared to be the very best decision based on internet surfing. Here are some core highlights from my first experience.
    1) Organization of overall holiday is built really effective: 1. Transfers which actually is very supportive point especially when u travel for the first time 2. Comfortable living conditions 3. Thorough daily schedules w/fair work load and deserved relaxation afterwards; 4. Catering system that’s based on varity and considers work load and specifics of participants (e.g. vegeterians/vegans, etc) 5. Inclusion of different training locations which allows not only to run-run-run but to admire incredible Portuguese landscape.
    2) Each coach appears to be a super nice person on a positive wavelengh and a proffesional who can support you w/your training FAQ list.
    3) Trainings apart from 10 out of 10 workload, challenges and variaty of acsents offer different locations what is super important if you are a fan of beatiful nature and landscapes. And what is important after such sessions you feel that your body improves and level of confidence in face of new challenges step by step increases.
    4) Such trip is a great opportunity to meet new and unique people who apart from sport goals most likely will share w/you some interesting stories.
    5) Location itself is for sure one of the best for training sessions. Already mentioned beatiful landscape, mountains, water, sun, even rain will allow for several days to live in different Portuguese dimension.

    The overall mark is 5+ out 5. Thank you, guys

    Vegan runner heaven! Holidays are often tricky if you’re vegan but the coaches at Embrace were wonderful, taking my dietary demands entirely in their stride and creating fantastic, delicious and nutritious meals every evening especially for me. The personal approach permeates everything they do, so the runs were thoughtfully organised to be adaptable for everyone in the group. The scenery was amazing, the accommodation great and the people lovely. Looking forward to next time!

    As one of the few newbie’s on this trip, I very quickly saw why Embrace have such a high athlete return rate. Amazing locations, great diversity of runs, brilliant food and culture and an overall fantastically balanced week. The coaches and fellow runners who had been before were all welcoming and supportive. Before departing I was worried I would not be able to finish the week as it seemed like a lot more running compared to my usual schedule , but the week is tailored in such in a way that is beneficial to all level of runners. I loved every run. What you can do with the right support and environment is amazing. Great fun and will be back for sure!

    This was my third running break with Embrace. So they must be doing something right. The ‘right’ is a great mix of running training – including off road, beach, hill and track sessions – that friendly and supportive coaches tailor to provide the right level of challenge depending on each runner’s experience and/or aims. Add on great food – those coaches can also cook up a storm. And a whole bunch of people who may start out as strangers but will soon be friends.
