Running Camp Portugal Algarve

20th - 28th Feb. 2021


It is a unique experience to escape the winter and to train daily at pleasant temperatures under the sun of the Algarve in Portugal and to enjoy the landscape. 

The routes take us through orange groves and along the sea. On a resting day, a trip to Albufeira offers a nice change. Or if you prefer it  more quiet, you can just enjoy a day on the kilometer-long sandy beach.


The Victoria Beach & Sport hotel is located in Praia da Falesia just a short distance from Albufeira and 19km from Faro Airport. All rooms are air-conditioned and feature a private bathroom, a kitchenette and a flat-screen TV with satellite channels. Free WiFi is available in all areas. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool, as well as its own gym and a private athletic facility which we use for our trainings. Behind the hotel there is a cross running track.

The Algarve Regions offers a balanced climate and is influenced by both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean and its proximity to North Africa. In the months from October to March the temperatures are at a pleasant 17° C to 22° C. These are ideal conditions for daily running training.
