    5 out of 5 Great running holiday in the Algarve

    Another great week of running with the Embrace Crew. I’ve been out a few times now and each time the holiday offers something special. My non-running friends think I’m mad when I say I’m going on a running holiday but with Embrace you can do just that. They’ve set the week up perfectly so you can enjoy a variety of runs; distances and terrains from the Woodland Trail to the Beach. Then relax by the pool. These holidays are great ways to meet with other runners, share experiences and most of all make new friendships. Thoroughly recommend trying a running holiday with these guys!

    This was my first holiday with Embrace. When I booked I wasn’t sure what to expect however on reflection my expectations were certainly exceeded. The training was varied, fun and challenging. Everybody motivated and supported each other which was great to see. Throughout the whole week the food was faultless. The time to train and the time to relax was spot on. The Algarve was absolutely stunning with Lagos retaining its Portuguese charm. It proved to be a fantastic week.

    5 out of 5 Surpassed expectations!

    (verified owner)

    First time on this type of holiday and very glad we picked Embrace, the location was great, their set up is very professional yet friendly and welcoming, especially important as many of our group were return visitors, however there was never a feeling of gatecrashing someone else’s party, everyone was lovely. In fact the real highlight was just being in a place with other runners, happy to talk all day about running!! Who ever gets that on their typical family or mates holidays?!! Training was varied which we really enjoyed, built in options to do more or less depending on your personal goals. The accommodation far surpassed our expectations and the hearty, home cooked meals each night were a real highlight. We both left feeling fitter and healthier, if not exactly leaner!! We would recommend and would certainly do it again.

    5 out of 5 Perfect Running Holidays

    (verified owner)

    I enjoyed my first running holiday, and I’ve met with Embrace the perfect choice. The varied sports program, the fresh cooked food, the infrastructure, the trainers, the warm, open and friendly people and not forget the fresh delicious beer from tab ensure a perfect running holiday.
    Also as a badly speaking English participant I found my place in the group and had a fabulous time. Thank you all, it was fantastic!

    Some words in my Language…
    Ich hatte eine wunderschöne Zeit in der Algarve. Es war mein erster organisierter Sport Urlaub, daher wusste ich nicht genau was mich erwartet.
    Das Embrace Team liebt was es macht, und als Teilnehmer profitierst du davon. Die Herzlichkeit, die Professionalität und die Leidenschaft der Crew ist beflügelnd.
    Die Kombination aus Sport, gutem frisch zubereitetem Essen, sehr freundliche, spassige, spannende Mit-Urlauber mit der verbindenden Leidenschaft zu Laufen sind das Rezept für unvergessliche Ferien.
    Ich empfehle die Embrace Ferien allen Sportlern die es lieben ihr hobby eine Woche mit guten Freunden zu teilen

    5 out of 5 Another brilliant trip!

    Despite nursing an injury I still managed to have a great time and achieve more than I’d expected to. The guys were great at accommodating me. This was my 7th Embrace holiday yet there were still a few surprises, new sessions and routes which was great. Whatever your abilities or stage of your running journey I’d highly recommend an Embrace for a brilliant training holiday.

    5 out of 5 Great training...

    Another great week training with Embrace. Loved every minute. This team excels in catering for all abilities and gives you the freedom to do your own thing if required. A wonderful environment to push the marathon training on and the homemade cooking fuels the week with exceptional quality. There were first time marathon runners to ultra runners. It’s a bit like secret escapes, shhh, you don’t want too many people to find out 🙂

    5 out of 5 Training at its best! Varied, fun and challenging !

    This was my 5th Embrace holiday and each one gets more enjoyable! I booked at the last minute when I found myself half way through marathon training and lacking motivation, there was only one thing I knew to get my mojo back….marathon camp- thank goodness there was still a place!
    The week is challenging, fun, hard work and sociable in equal measure. Suitable for all ages, all abilities and all paces, everyone encouraging and motivating each other. Seeing other people achieve their goals really Spurs the rest of the group on too.
    Let’s talk about food…..it was outstanding as always. Fresh, nutritious, healthy and super tasty, and plentiful!

    5 out of 5 running and holiday in equal measure

    Most (admittedly non runner) friends think a running holiday is not possible! It is. I have been on this holiday 3 times and it is a great balance of training and relaxing. It is surprising how many miles we can cover without having to worry about normal life. The different terrains and structure of the holiday means no two runs are the same and keeps training interesting. I hope to be back for more!

    Want that running goal, then an Embrace Sports running holiday is just the step to take. These guys cater for all abilities with training designed to test all levels across a variety of courses. If you want a week which will challenge you to progress to another level of marathon training then you will love this. A warm friendly relaxing environment, amazing fresh home cooked food and washed down with glasses of wine! I’m already excited about going back next year!

    (verified owner)

    This is my second Embrace holiday and it was just as good, if not better than last year! The training sessions are varied, the home cooked food is delicious and the coaches are motivated and approachable! This has been much needed marathon motivation for me two years in a row now and I hope to return again very soon!

    5 out of 5 Perfect for all abilities

    I have been on several running camps with Embrace and will keep going back! It’s great value, with varied training sessions every day to suit all running abilities, with encouraging and enthusiastic coaches. The food is delicious and there is time to chillout and relax before the next session. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

    5 out of 5 Informed and challenging training in a friendly and relaxed environment

    I’ve been coming on these camps for 6 years. I love them. They aren’t just about the training, they’re about relaxation, support, encouragement, food and laughter. All of this is a winning combination enhanced by lovely Lagos itself. I’ve come on these camps in varying degrees of fitness and can confirm, first hand, that they really do cater for all abilities. No one is left out and everyone’s goals are important. I really can’t recommend these holidays enough. The support, passion and hard work of the coaches is second to none.

    5 out of 5 Sunshine marathon training

    Brilliant food, accommodation, activities and company. I was the oldest on the trip, but everyone was really supportive and the exercise in lovely warm weather was just right. I was not training for any particular event, just enjoyed a week of doing what I enjoy doing, sometimes a bit faster than I am used to, and plenty of chilling out by the pool too. Am coming back in 2016 🙂
