By some margin the best warm weather training camps available and with 126 participants in 2019, representing all ability levels the camp was a sell-out. 

For 2020 the camps will be offered over two weeks so that we can have more participants and also to offer flexibility around dates for those with a Spring Half Marathon planned:

Week 1: Saturday 14th March to Saturday 21st March

Week 2: Saturday 21st March to Saturday 28th March (an extension to Sunday 29th March is possible).

The training is conducted by an enviable list of experts, including 2:09 Events director, London Marathon winner Mike Gratton, supported, last, year by Mara Yamauchi, the UK's second fastest female marathon runner with 2.23, 2nd placed in London 2012 and 6th in the Beijing Olympics, plus Jenny Spink, trained PT, coach and 2.35 marathon runner and winner of the 2019 Manchester Marathon. Our team is strengthed with experts in core stability, yoga for runners and Pilates. 

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 fo your holiday or Airport to resort transfers

Unlike other camps 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. 

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

The 10-night option allows 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 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 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 or 2-bedroom apartments for up to 5 people. Arrangements are on 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. The facilities are perfect for a running camp. 

TWIN TO SHARE

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


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.
