    5 out of 5 IRON Triathlon holiday

    This camp was exactly what I needed in the run up to my main event (IM Austria on 26 June). The combination of the three events was ideal, the standard of the fellow triathletes was excellent – pushed me hard enough – and the spirit of the camp was great, as ever with Embrace. This was my 5th Embrace holiday and I’ll definitely be back for more.

    This is my third year doing an embrace camp, and probably my favorite one to date. Having previously been on the Algarve triathlon camp twice, this was my first Iron distance camp. Luckily for me the camp is run with the same great organisation and enthusiasm and I enjoyed every minute of it. The cycling out here is amazing, access to fantastic swimming lake and great running all on the doorstep of a beautiful old french house. The only downside to the trip was some rain on a couple of days, but we countered this by lighting the fire inside and getting some quality recovery time in front of the fire. As always food was amazing and nutritious. I couldn’t recommend highly enough the week to anyone preparing for a long distance race or just looking to put in some training/socializing in beautiful surrounds.
    Many thanks to all the coaches !

    5 out of 5 Great holiday once again

    Having now tried three different locations with Embrace, the Iron Distance holiday in the Alps did not disappoint! Fantastic coaching as always, great food and exciting routes all planned out for us. I was struck once again how the coaches manage to cater for all abilities, making sure everyone has a challenging and fun time. I would highly recommend an Embrace trip to anyone even vaguely interested in running or triathlon – they’re brilliant.

    My first foray into the world of Iron distance training and really enjoyed it. The guys helped me to go to new levels of endurance and performance. But really enjoyed the downtime as well – stunning setting, great accommodation and wonderful company. Highly recommended for any would-be-irondistance-triathlete

    5 out of 5 Motivating!

    My big dream is to acheive an Ironman! So… after years of doing sprint triathlons I decided it was time to up the game. Being a big fan of the Algarve running camps, where better to get training and advice than with an Embrace Iron distance camp? I was totally nervous about this as I’m slow and where in running camp I can adapt I knew that bike rides could be more problematic. However, I had nothing to fear – the coaches were able to adapt training to all abilities and even to the weather. The setting was great, made for relaxing and socialising after training, and the food was amazing! I met some very inspiring people that week and after my 1st 1/2 Ironman this year I’ll definitely be back for another camp to train for the full. I recommend this camp for anyone wanting to train for a middle / iron distance – I learnt loads about biking, running and open water swimming !

    5 out of 5 Great week of training & great food!

    (verified owner)

    Does exactly what it says on the tin; a great week of training with coaches who clearly know what they’re talking about and push everyone to achieve things they may not have thought possible. The accommodation is in a secluded place which allows everyone to train hard and recover hard. I was pleased to see that recovery beers after a hard days training weren’t frowned upon! Food is great – was disappointed to get home and have to plan all my own meals again. I’d definitely recommend to anyone doing a half or full Ironman & looking for a week away.

    5 out of 5 1st ever training camp

    After searching websites for the right week for me I came upon Embrace Sports and it didn’t let me down. An incredible week in the Pyrenees culminating in the ascent of the Tourmalet. The week changed the way I approached my training and I discovered the extent to which I could push my body. I managed to springboard from this week to a GB age group place and a European AG gold at the half distance. Can’t wait to get back out with the guys again. Thanks Neil, Graeme and Kat.

    My favourite training camp ( full stop ) with fantastic coaches who are a lot of fun, yet push you to reach your goal and also look after you. Had a great time every time I went and when the camp ends you just want to do it again and again.. its a great sense of achievements conquering French mountains in the Pyrenees day after day, just when you thought you cant, you learn that you can and loving every day of it.

    Also be prepared for fantastic variety of dinners. The only thing you have to worry about is not to overeat.. which always tends to happen. – but then again, those hills make you work hard and help you burn it off. 🙂 that what I told myself..

    Go and enjoy it and get ready for a hell of a week of your life!
    Thank you Neil, Graeme and Kat and Eric

    5 out of 5 Smiling for Smiddy

    Graeme and the lads at Embrace looked after us Aussielads for 2 years that included 3 tours through the Pyrenees and the French Alps. We are a charity raising money for cancer research and the Embrace lads were very welcoming and really got into the spirit of what we were about and what we are trying to achieve. Besides the tour being amazing the food was simply outstanding and the stay in a local farm house was the icing on the cake. I would definiltey recommend Embrace to anyone looking for a first class organsisation to take the worry out of travelling to do a bike tour, leaving you with one thing only to concentrate on and that is what we love doing the most, riding our bikes! Thanks Embrace. You guys rock!

    5 out of 5 My second Iron distance camp

    Really enjoyed the week. Great to meet so many new faces as well as the familiar faces. The training is a good balance of training with still being able to chat and socialise. The coaches have other talents like cooking great food..
