LOCATION

Situated steps from the beach, a private seaside residence serves as home-base for the weekend. Run along the beach, explore trails on local conservation land, unwind with restorative yoga and participate in inspiring and informative workshops with our guest speakers.

Take a moment for yourself overlooking the ocean, relax to the sound of the waves, and connect with women who love to run.

FAQ

What are your COVID Safety Requirements?

Through these safety requirements, we hope to create a safe environment for every participating as well as the surrounding community. We believe that required COVID testing will help do that as well as provide peace of mind to all those involved.

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?

We strongly encourage each of our participants to drive their own vehicle to the Fall 2020 Retreat. 

The closest airports include:

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

  • Boston Logan International Airport (2 hr drive)

Accommodations are in a large private residence and include options for single or double occupancy. Bathrooms are shared.
