    5 out of 5 Amazing team, amazing experience

    Cannot rate this holiday enough. Chances are if you are even mad enough to be considering one of these holidays you will love it. There are people of all abilities, although in general people do atleast regularly run 5k sort of distance. I came with an injury and the team managed to accommodate me so that it wasn’t a waste of a holiday. I cannot wait to come back to the camp when I am fully fit! Incredible social and sporting experience and surprisingly relaxing despite the amount of activity involved! There is a session for everyone!

    5 out of 5 I came, I saw, I ran, I embraced

    This is the third time in 18 months that I have been on an Embrace Sports running holiday so its safe to say I don’t just like it, I absolutely love it.

    I have met so many wonderful people each of the times I have been here, including the trainers who are extremely knowledgable and amazing athletes in their own rights themselves. There is a lot of downtime in between the training sessions but so much to do nearby and there is always something going on to keep you amused even if that’s just sitting by the pool with a beer. The food is fantastic and all cooked from scratch everyday and they will cater for anyone.

    Lastly the places you actually run (ya’know the important bit of the running holiday) are just brilliant, so varied and so picturesque.

    5 out of 5 Awesome running holiday with Embrace sports

    (verified owner)

    Went on the February 2017 running holiday. A total mix of ability and triathletes as well as runners. Wow! Everyday we were supported and challenged to do our best and helped with techniques and advice all along the way! Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff from the food we ate right through to help when needed.

    I achieved runs beyond my wildest dreams and overcome personal stoppers with sessions like hills.

    You experience a wide variety of running without pressure and despite the vast ability everyone is always celebrating and encouraging you.

    I would totally recommend and will be returning. I couldn’t fault a thing!

    5 out of 5 Awesome week with top coaches

    (verified owner)

    Pretty much everything about this week was spot on. The accommodation was good, the food was excellent (kudos to the chefs!) and the diversity of different runs that we did – woodland trails to beach runs – kept the training interesting throughout. Particular credit to the team – Neil, Alan, Eric, Rachel and Graeme- who know their sport inside out, but are also really top guys. They went out of their way to make sure everyone had a good time (and got a little more accomplished at running too), so they really made the trip.

    (verified owner)

    After being recommended by a friend I decided to book my first Embrace sports running holiday and it didn’t disappointed 1 bit. The apartments were exceptional the food cooked by the guys wasn’t only healthy but super tasty. The running side was for all abilities and produced some stunning views. I enjoyed so much that I actually booked my next trip whilst still in Portugal. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone considering this trip.

    5 out of 5 Fantastic, as always!

    (verified owner)

    These trips deliver a lot in terms of both a relaxing, fun holiday and top-quality training.

    This week really helped me get some quality miles and get back on the road to improving my marathon PB (2:50:28). I learned some useful tips about stretching, and had a great week of varied running sessions. I could see clear improvements in my running already at the end of the week! It was great to run with a great bunch of fun, motivated people, and once again, the home-cooked food was amazing.

    Big, big thanks to the coaches, Neil, Graeme, Eric, Rachel and Alan – hope to see you all next time!

    This was my first Embrace holiday but hopefully not my last. Well organised, great food, great company and, above all, an amazing variety of running routes from sandy beaches to cliff tops to woodland trails, catering for all abilities. Thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to do it again.

    5 out of 5 Fantastic week!

    (verified owner)

    This was my 1st Embrace holiday and I loved every minute! The training was very enjoyable but challenging at the same time. The coaches were always there to help achieve new goals, and it was clear that a lot of planning had taken place regarding the locations of the sessions – fantastic views! The accommodation and food were both fantastic – the coaches were very good at providing meals for different dietary needs. Looking forward to the Alps in June, and I’m sure that I’ll be back to the Algarve soon!

    5 out of 5 An amazing and motivating week

    (verified owner)

    My third camp with Embrace, and I find it hard to believe that the high standards just continue: awesome coaches, great food (who could imagine that coaches make such excellent chefs!), and a fantastic team atmosphere, supportive of runners of all levels. Embrace have found some great run routes, some testing others less so, but all varied and catering for all.

    5 out of 5 A totally amazing experience

    The Embrace running camp totally surpassed all my expectations. The accommodation and food were amazing. The three coaches (Neil, Graeme and Eric) are so passionate, friendly and approachable – I learnt so much from them. Embrace genuinely caters for runners of all abilities. Each training session was different and everyone was able to train at their own level. I met some great people and can’t wait to do it all again in May.

    5 out of 5 Totally smashed it!

    I booked the holiday during the dark days of December. The trip was so well organised, you couldn’t fault them on any part of the week. The coaches are so passionate about what they do and they love sharing that with us. I learnt a lot about ways to improve my running. I feel totally inspired to keep building on the solid training they provided all week. I thought it sounded like a fairy-tale at the start of the week, but the proof is in the targetted run at the end of the week. I don’t even hate hill runs anymore.

    5 out of 5 Wow...what a week!

    I booked the February running holiday to re-motivate me for running, and to prepare for my April half marathon.

    I went on my own, but met some amazing people. I was challenged and motivated by 3 fantastic trainers, and supported and inspired by the whole group, especially on tough days!

    I feel much more confident about my running ability. I’m still buzzing after an awesome week, and am determined to apply what I learnt at camp. I’m even excited for my half marathon now!

    I would definitely recommend this holiday, and can’t wait to book up again! Thanks Neil, Eric and Graeme 🙂

    5 out of 5 Great People....Great Location....Great Holiday

    This was my 4th time on an Embrace Algarve Running holiday and once again it delivered on all levels, providing a wonderful quality training opportunity and location amongst the company of like-minded people.
    The great thing about an Embrace holiday is that the Embrace team welcomes everyone of all abilities, creating a real good mix of a friendly relaxed atmosphere with a great training week.
    The enthusiasm, support and approachability of the coaches are a key highlight for me. each time I return home with extra motivation, new ideas and new friends.
    Throw in excellent food and accommodation and you have a brilliant holiday !

    5 out of 5 More than I expected

    What a fabulous week! After Dawn finding Embrace Sports online and convincing me that this is what we needed as a break from the dark and wet Jan to March in the UK, I am so pleased we did it.
    Some excellent training sessions and advice from 3 amazing coaches. I was impressed at how quickly they realised every ones abilities, strengths and weaknesses .
    Accommodation was outstanding and the freshly prepared healthy evening meals were outstanding. All washed down with a few glasses of wine too!! What more could you ask for.
    The care and attention I received from the coaches after my fall was outstanding, once again this shows their passion for their job.
    Met some lovely, like minded people on the holiday and it was great to see them progress over the week.
    Thankyou once again , Neil, Graeme and Eric. I hope to be back next year once again

    5 out of 5 Laughed more than I ran!

    I did the pre-marathon running holiday in February 2015 and I had the funniest and most productive week ever!
    The range and abilities of runners was huge amongst our group, but every single person was given the same amount of the coaches’ time, training and encouragement.
    I never knew food and beer could play such an important part in my performance!
    But it exceeded all my expectations and left me on SUCH a high!
    Great food, great company and great coaches! (Graeme, Neil, Eric & Mike)

    5 out of 5 Apart of something special

    What an amazing week! From the minute Neil and Eric met us at the airport to saying goodbye to Graeme back at Gatwick I felt like I was part of something special. Everything about the Embrace set up is 1st class. Not only are the coaches inspirational but so were all the new friends I shared the week with. I couldn’t recommend it more and can’t wait to go back again.
