Women's Running Retreat






Nestled along the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, Wolfeboro's quaint waterfront village serves as the backdrop to our weekend. Retreat attendees will have the opportunity to run along the lake side rail trail, which intersects with two other lakes and explore rural roads. At the conclusions of the weekend, attendees will get a bird's eye view of the lake from a local mountain during our sunrise hike. Within walking distance of the village center, our location will give attendees access to cafes, breweries and shops while providing access to quiet places perfect for reflection and escape.

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 (80 min drive)

  • Portland International Airport (PWM) Portland, Maine (90 min drive)

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

What are the accommodations like?

Accommodations are The Cottages in Wolfeboro, NH and include small cottages and the main house. There are single, double and multiple occupancy available on a first come first serve basis. The setting is in town with direct access to the rail trail and is within walking distance of breweries, cafes and shops. 

What is the cancellation policy?

Because of the investment of time and money into planning the retreat and securing lodging, we are unable to issue any refunds beyond the cancellation date. Prior to the cancelation date deadline, registered participants can receive a refund less a $500 non-refundable deposit. After the cancellation date deadline no refunds will be issued.

Cancellation deadline: July 16, 2021

Prior to July 16, 2021 a full refund less $500 non-refundable deposit.

No refunds will be issued on or after July 16, 2021.

There are no exceptions to this policy, including, but not limited to illness or injury. 

If a registered participant is unable to join the camp due to a positive COVID diagnosis or failure of the Symptoms Checklist in the days leading up to the retreat that prohibits their participation in the retreat, we will work with the individual to negotiate a refund on a case by case basis
