    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!

    As a repeat offender (this was my third Embrace Iron Distance Holiday) nothing disappointed... Great coaches, Great food and a fanatastic area to train in. A few new venues and sessions kept things fresh and there's always something new to learn. Definitely the best way to prepare for the start of the season!

    Can't help but simply reiterate everything I said last year. 2nd time around is even better because coaches remember you and there's no anxiety. The program, places and faces are familiar so you get in ready to rip into a great volume week of training. Plus, you have benchmarks to use. Simply said, these guys rock! From last year: "above and beyond one of the best holiday and training experiences! The fact that it could be both is incredible. The coaches are super knowledgeable and they have structured the camp perfectly to meet all of your desires. It’s well conceived so that you can manage what seems like an overwhelming amount of training first, but since it is so well organized and designed, you are pushing your limits beyond what you believed you are capable of. It helps that once you arrive, you are completely in the hands of professionals. You don’t have to fret about any decisions, which makes the holiday part of it all the better. The accommodations and food are top notch. Have more confidence and more knowledge know in a few days here than what would otherwise takes years to accumulate. Can’t wait for the next one!"

    This was my third Embrace Holiday, and definitely not my last! I have loved each Embrace camp I've been on, but this is my favourite so far. It was my first iron distance camp, and I'm so glad I took the plunge to try this longer distance training. I felt right at home in the crowd of athletes and coaches, and thoroughly enjoyed all of the sessions. The food was even better than I remember it from previous holidays, and the weather was perfect for triathlon training. The coaches also went above and beyond to help me when I got some mechanical difficulties with my bike! Thanks again, guys! I'll be back!

    '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!

    This was my first embrace training camp but it definitely won’t be my last! From the coaches to the food to the accommodation to the scenery – everything was amazing. Plus the The guys really know their stuff – and being back for a few days now and completing my first few training sessions back in the UK, I am already feeling fitter and stronger – all thanks to the Embrace guys! Additionally, the team (and the other guests on the week) were all keen to share their experiences of long distance races, and gave plenty of tips for the big day. I feel way more confident about my first iron distance race in a couple of months. Would definitely recommend to anybody – they definitely cater to all abilities. Will be back!

    Great environment, coaches, training plan and food!! This camp made more than 24 hours flight worth it!!! Awesome experience, with great tips and coaching; when I saw the overall program, I was not very sure I was going to be able to complete it, as impressed and happy I could be…. I ended up packing all my stuff on Saturday not only with many kilometer s completed but with the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment that I completed every single training. Very happy I was part of this camp, and looking forward to training harder in order to complete my IM distance later in the year!! Kuddos Embrace team!!

    Had another thoroughly good week of training with a great group of like minded people. You soon trust the coaches experience and knowledge to do more than you think capable of and finish the week stronger both physically and mentally.
