By some margin the best warm weather training camps available and with 105 participants in 2017, representing all ability levels, the camp genuinely offers training to suit all, from beginner to experienced improver.

The training is conducted by an enviable list of experts, including 2:09 Events director, London Marathon winner Mike Gratton, and probably the best coaching team in the land, Runningwithus (www.runningwithus.com), and their top trainers Nick Anderson and Tom Craggs, plus guest coaches and speakers - who can forget the inspiring talk by Luke Wigman on getting back to running PB's despite being blown up in Afganistan and our own Jenny Spink on how she improved from being a 3hr + Marathon runner to a PB of 2.34 and International representation.

INCLUDED

  • All training sessions and coaching advice
  • Breakfast at the Hotel
  • Massage where needed
  • Core stability, Pilates, Yoga and strength sessions
  • Welcome dinner
  • Celebration BBQ at a local restaurant
  • Hire car for the duration of your holiday or airport to resort transfers

There are no hidden extra's - even the Massage service is included although the massage service does not include regular relaxation massage and is aimed at rehabilitation of runners with an injury problem.

There's a choice of 7-night option plus an extended option for 10-nights. 

The 10 night options allow you 3 extra days training and at least one more long run for the sacrifice of just one more day off work. Extended stay without coaching is possible on request.

RESORT

We return after a few years to the modern 4-star Victoria Sport & Beach Hotel that many will remember as the Stella Maris. The hotel has been taken over and rebranded as part of the upmarket AP Hotels Group. Located right on the sports facilities an close to the popular Falesia village area with it's retaurants, bars and supermarket. All rooms at the Victoria Sports & Beach Hotel have a kitchenette and are either 1-bedroom apartments for up to 3 people of 2-bedroom apartments for up to 5 people. Arrangements are on bed & breakfast basis.

There is outdoor leisure pool, indoor sports facilities with weights room, 2km roped cross country circuit and a 400m all-weather track - the facilities are perfect for a running camp. 

TWIN TO SHARE
If you are travelling on your own we can share you up with another runner in a 1-bedroom apartment.

INCLUDED CAR HIRE
We include a Type B car (Corsa or similar) per 2 people sharing an apartment. Bookings with more than 2 people will be booked with a larger car. Single travellers requiring sole use of a car will need to pay the single occupant supplement. Drivers must be 23 years of age or older.

If you do not require car hire, we will arrange transfers by minibus to and from Faro Airport.

CAMP FEE
In addition to the cost of travel there is a training camp fee (£95 for 7 / £115 for 10-nt package.  This covers the cost of supplying the coaches, masseurs, advisors for the camp. There is a lower fee of £39 for non-participants travelling with runner which covers the cost of the camp T-shirt and administration of some of the social activities.

Please note that we can not offer places on the camp based on the camp fee only - participation in the camp requires the travel package to be booked as well.

FLIGHTS 

There have been many changes in the way people purchase flights and there are lots of regional options when it comes to flying into the Algarve’s commercial airport at FARO.

We have changed our price structures so that we no longer include the flights in the package so that you can take advantage of the cheap flights offered by EasyJet, Monarch and Jet2.
