Run Wild Retreats + Wellness, a provider of premier women’s running and wellness retreats in some of the world’s best trail-running destinations, is tripling the number of retreats it is offering in 2017, bringing the total to 8 retreats across five countries.

“We’ve expanded our global guide network, operations team and brought on new retreat leaders so that we could offer a greater variety of retreat experiences to more runners,” says Run Wild Retreats + Wellness CEO, Elinor Fish. “This also allows us to maintain a consistently high standard for our retreats while meeting the specific needs and interests of our guests.

The first three retreats on the 2017 roster include:

The Costa Brava Running + Wellness Retreat in Catalonia, Spain, takes place April 22 – 28, 2017. The retreat begins in the historic walled city of Girona and then head north along the Mediterranean Sea towards the Pyrenees. Guests run between charming fishing villages, along sea cliffs and on golden sandy beaches. After running the first part of each day, runners refuel at seaside patios, indulging in local wine, sangria and gourmet Catalan cuisine.

For the first time, the popular Moab Mindful Running Retreat, named one of the “Best Running Camps in the U.S.” for women, will be offered in spring as well as fall. Taking place March 30 – April 2, 2017, this retreat is a four-day immersion in the mindful running experience in a serene desert environment that includes restorative yoga classes and natural running form clinics.

The third annual Iceland Trail Running + Wellness Retreat for women, Run Wild Retreats + Wellness’s most popular retreat, is set for August 7 – 13, 2017. Starting and ending the capitol city of Reykjavik, runners enjoy massive waterfalls and sea-cliff trails along the southern coast and the world’s most beautiful black-sand beach, Reynisfjara. Then we head into Þórsmörk, or the “Land of Thor,” a deep river valley surrounded by massive volcanic glaciers, home to some of the best trail running in Iceland.

All Run Wild retreats include wellness workshops about running for stress management, which is vital to women’s health and well-being. Retreat participants come away from the experience rejuvenated and with renewed motivation and confidence in their running. Registration for these and other retreats is open now at
