Tucked into the shoreline of one of Maine's largest lakes, a private lakeside lodge serves as home base for the weekend. Explore rural dirt roads, state park trails and participate in inspiring and informative workshops.

Take a moment for yourself out on the water on a paddleboard or kayak, or relax on one of the porches overlooking the waters edge.

What if I am not a fast runner?

We believe that running is a transformative act for everyone who chooses to participate. We welcome runners of all ages and abilities. For group runs we divide into pace groups and make sure that no one runs alone. We believe that everyone belongs at Rise.Run.Retreat. 


How far are the group runs?

Group runs are anywhere from 3-6 miles on varied terrain. At each of our retreats we plan for a combination of road, trail and rural dirt road runs. For those following a training plan, there are options to run longer when needed.

What is the best airport to fly into?

The closest airports include:

  • Portland International Airport (PWM) Portland, Maine (55 min drive)

  • Boston Logan International Airport (2 hr 32 min drive)

What are the accommodations like?

Accommodations are in a large private residence with 2-4 individuals per room and large shared bathrooms. The home provides adequate gathering space with plenty of nooks and quiet spaces to 'get away.'

Set on 10 acres of land, there is ample outdoor spaces for relaxing and hanging out.

What is the cancellation policy?

If the registration is cancelled 90 days prior to retreat a​ $500 cancellation fee will be charged. No refunds will be issued after 90 days.
