There are no hidden etras. Whilst the Massage service is included, it is aimed at rehabilitation of runners with an injury problem, rather than being a regular relaxation massage. 

RESORT

We return to the modern 4-star Victoria Sport & Beach Hotel, located right next to the sports facilities and close to the popular Falesia village area, with it's restaurants, bars and supermarkets. All rooms at the Victoria Sports & Beach Hotel have a kitchenette and are either 1-bedroom apartments for up to 3 people or 2-bedroom apartments for up to 5 people. Arrangements are on a bed & breakfast basis.

There is an outdoor leisure pool, indoor sports facilities with weights room, 2km roped cross country circuit and a 400m all-weather track. With some excellent off-road trails in and around the area and a beach less than a kilometre from the hotel door, the facilities are perfect for a running camp. 

TWIN TO SHARE

If you are travelling on your own we can try to pair you up with another runner of the same gender in a 1-bedroom apartment. This option may not be available for late bookings, that is less than 6 weeks before the camp.


INCLUDED CAR HIRE

We include a Type B car (4-door Corsa or similar) per 2 people sharing an apartment. Bookings with more than 2 people will be booked 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

The training camp fee is now included in the overall package cost of the camp.


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 Algarves commercial airport at FARO.

We have changed our price structures so that we no longer include the flights in the package, so you can take advantage of the cheap flights offered by EasyJet, Ryanair, TUI and Jet2 as well as scheduled flights with BA.
