Women's Runnng Retreat Maine


OCTOBER 13-16, 2022


Expansive ocean views serve as the backdrop to our weekend in Wells, Maine. Retreat attendees will have the opportunity to run along the ocean and experience gentle trails at a marsh preserve. At the conclusion of the weekend, you'll have the chance to salute the sun with oceanside yoga.

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:

  • Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT) Manchester, NH (90 min drive)

  • Portland International Airport (PWM) Portland, Maine (40 min drive)

  • Boston Logan International Airport (1 hr 50 min drive)

What are the accommodations like?

Accommodations at a private beachside residence. There are single and double and occupancy available on a first come first serve basis. The setting is on the beach with direct access to the beach. 

What is the difference between the Spring and Fall Retreats?

  • The spring retreat is 3-days, the fall retreat is 4-days. 

  • The spring retreat does not have guest speakers, the fall retreat has two guest speakers.
