I had a fantastic week. The camp was attended by a wide range of abilities, from charity runners such as myself, up to internationally competing athletes, yet the camp caters for all with coaches available to talk about all aspects of training from strength and conditioning regimes to nutrition. Everyone was friendly and the hotel is only a five minute walk from the beach to watch the gorgeous sunset. Would definitely recommend this running holiday

I was very lucky to be able to take part in the Runningwithus training camp in Portugal just before the UK went into lockdown. The camp was a really brilliant experience. I was really nervous going - I suffer from a bit of anxiety and after a string of injuries wasn’t exactly race fit. That didn’t matter - Siobhan, Nick and the team made sure that I was looked after and I was encouraged to take part. Going into the camp I’d struggled with 5K - while I was there I did my first 10K in a year and it has shown me I’m 100% capable of more than I thought I was. Two months post camp and I’m the fittest I’ve been in about two years - I’m consistent with my training and I can see that I’m making small gains all the time. I really hope that I’ll be able to come back to the 2021 training camp

The Running with Us Algarve trip always helps me to re-focus on training during my peak phase of marathon prep; It’s the perfect mix between quality sessions and plenty of recovery time during the day. The hotel is in a beautiful location, with the choice of quiet roads, track, trail and beach running all on the doorstep. It’s always a really friendly, social group of runners, making the evening meals and recovery time good fun. Away from the distractions of busy work life, I can check in on all aspects training, including nutrition and conditioning, meaning I always leave feeling refreshed and with a renewed confidence for upcoming races. This year I was able to get in 10 days of quality marathon prep and my husband enjoyed coming along to focus on getting fitter for 10k. We both look forward to coming back next year

'Great running holiday, and I would recommend it for all ages and abilities. The scenery is great for running (orange groves & along the clifftop), and the weather in March is ideal for running. The coaches are very helpful, and it was great to meet and train with lots of other keen runners'

After two consecutive pregnancies, I was looking to get back to running with the goal of a half marathon within the year. Following an evaluation of my fitness, Thierry at Jura Sports provided a comprehensive, tailor-made training program for the core and running. It was important that initially the programme was not too aggressive or time demanding given my new family commitments and break from running. Thierry’s structured approach, technical guidance and regular follow-ups have kept me motivated and set me on the right track to successfully achieve my goal.
