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 lakeside rail trail, which intersects with two other lakes and explore rural roads. At the conclusion 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 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.
