    Yet again, Embrace have delivered. A fantastic week of running in some beautiful surroundings. The setting, food, coaching and fellow runners made for a very enjoyable week. A perfect mix of running, relaxing and socialising with fun folk.

    5 out of 5 Team Scotland (well half of them) go to France

    My sixth Embrace Camp but my first outside Portugal…..and it won’t be my last! The varied training runs (including two Cols!!!), outstanding food and great company in the stunning setting of the Pyrenees was a winning combination. There was also plenty of chill out time in the hot tub in the afternoons, lots of games of bananagrams and despite a few rain showers we were able to sit outside our beautiful farmhouse for dinner every night!

    Thanks again Eric, Neil and Rach. Looking forward to the Alps next year.

    Best running holiday in France! Angela Campbell

    5 out of 5 Awesome!

    What a great holiday. Double days, great food, a hot tub and all the beer you could drink. We had an amazing view from our room too which was an added bonus. The last day we ran up the Col D’aspin- fairly painful and steep, but good bragging rights. See you all again soon and thanks again for good times. Clive and Sharon xx

    5 out of 5 Another great training/chilling week!

    I’d been to a few Embrace camps in Portugal and came on this one with some folks I’d met previously. Another great week of eating and running and more eating and some sitting. I always come back motivated for training (and to try to recreate some of the meals too!)

    5 out of 5 'Today we ran up a mountain'

    I’ve enjoyed all my Embrace running holidays. Was definitely up for a new challenge. Loved the mix of training sessions in the spectacular setting of the pyrenees . And I really can say that I ran all the way up Col d’Aspin. All 12k of climb. And met a crowd of lovely runners, with a wide range of abilities and experience, who got to the top with me. That’s the power of the skilful mix of training you get on these holidays.

    5 out of 5 Time of my life

    It was my first holiday with Embrace and I just enjoyed every minute. The place was so beautyful. The thre coaches was amazing and learned me so much, and I am now able to ran at least 15K without stopping, I hav never dreamt of being able to do this, and after only 7 days. I hope to return som e day.

    5 out of 5 An epic climb up Col D'Aspin!

    After several trips to the Algarve running camps, it was time to try something new in a new location. Tucked away surrounded by fields, it is a rustic contrast to previous camps, and most enjoyable. The best part for me was the lakeside running, stunning views of the mountains, then the epic climb of Col D’Aspin! Straight into my top 5 best ever runs, the scenery was stunning, changing on every turn, and the reward of reaching the top being greeted by a family of mountain goats was just epic! Recovering in the hot tub with a beer and making great new friends was awesome!

    5 out of 5 Conquering Cols

    This was my first trip with Embrace and it certainly delivered.
    Even as an experienced runner I gained a great deal from the new terrain, helpful training advice and good company. The week consisted of a successful balance of challenging running with time to rest, relax and refuel on delicious food.
    Not only did I meet some fabulous new friends, but I learnt a great deal about my own capabilities, especially when conquering Col d’Aspin at the end of the trip!
    Well done Embrace team! I really hope to be back for another trip soon.

    5 out of 5 Another awesome week with Embrace Sports

    My 5th week on an Embrace camp and, first time outside Portugal, and probably the best week yet.

    As usual, great training, great food, great company and the occasional beer!

    Run up Col d’Aspin probably straight to the top of my list of favourite runs. Looking forward to conquering more Cols in The Pyrenees or The Alps next year!

    5 out of 5 Fun in the mountains

    Had such a fantastic holiday!!! Never thought I could conquer a col but with great, enthusiastic coaches and running team mates everyone powered up the col d’Aspin in style. This was a super way to finish a fantastic week of running which also included time in the hot tub, some epic battles on the table tennis table and lots of glorious food!!
    If you’re thinking of going on a holiday with embrace, GET IT BOOKED! You definitely won’t be disappointed
    This was my first embrace holiday but it definitely won’t be my last!

    5 out of 5 My 11th Camp with Embrace

    Having been on 10 camps in the algarve this was my first trip to the Pyrenees. It was a totally new running challenge not about speed or distance but strength and endurance to conquer the infamous cols. The group size being smaller made for great team spirit and camaraderie. And all in the most stunningly beautiful location. Amazing.
