Details

This women’s only retreat is open to 22 participants and is hosted in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.

All Women of ALL ABILITIES are welcome to this retreat! You can expect no-drop runs with various pace accommodating groups. Whether you want to run every step, or rather hike all the hills, you will be in good company! 

Off the trails you can take part in our five Workshops and also have the opportunity to experience downtown Boulder. Our educational sessions are offered to better equip, prepare and enhance your time on the trails. During your free time, it’s only a short walk to Boulder’s Pearl Street if you’re up for shopping, beer tasting or simply to watch the street performers. 

All meals are INCLUDED in your retreat package except for breakfast. You will have the option to purchase breakfast at the Basecamp Hotel where we will be staying. Meals include a mix of amazing catering, bagged lunches and dinner out on Pearl Street followed by delicious gelato! We accommodate different diets and allergies.

Oh, and we can’t forget to mention your TS swag bags! Who doesn’t love free gear?! Since education is a key foundation in the Trail Sisters mission, we find it important to introduce you to different products for the chance to experience their benefits on the trail. Testing something new may be the key to bettering your runs!

Lastly and most importantly, Run with Her Retreats are in place to help create camaraderie and forge life-long friendships. Having a chance to meet and learn from one another not only strengthens our own comprehension, but also gives us the ability to guide and teach. Plus, there isn’t anything more valuable than authentic personal connections.

If you like what you’re reading and want to join us in Boulder for miles, smiles and lots of laughs, scroll down for additional retreat details and to sign up! Have a few questions, we are happy to answer! Email retreat leader and TS Founder, Gina Lucrezi at [email protected].

The Trails

Each day we have one organized run. All of the runs are no-drop (we stop and regroup at various points along the trail), and participants organically segment themselves into three different pace groups. This way runners are never left by themselves to get lost, etc. Additionally, each run includes a leader, mid-pack wrangler and caboose. Our runs are at elevation, but nothing so high that has prevented our sea level participants from completing them. All participants are encouraged to go at their own pace, to enjoy a better adventure.

Basecamp Hotel

We are excited to partner with Boulder’s Basecamp Hotel for our 2022 lodging. Basecamp is located only a few blocks from downtown and the famous Pearl Street Mall. Lodging options include a single occupancy room, double occupancy room, and the Great Outdoors room which hosts four occupants. Additionally, enjoy access to their fitness room, indoor hot tub, indoor dry sauna, fire pit and bouldering wall. If you’re craving a smoothie, snack, coffee or adult bevy, visit their onsite cafe and lobby bar. The Basecamp Hotel is the perfect place to relax after a long day on the trails, and for easy access to any shenanigans in downtown Boulder.
*Lodging included in retreat package.

Friendships & Sisterhood

What might be the best part of the retreat, is simply meeting like-minded women looking to have a great time in the outdoors while creating life-long friendships. There is no shortage of conversation (or laughs for that matter) whether during meals, runs, workshops, or hanging around the fire pit with s’mores. Additionally, we will move the party to Pearl Street for a great meal downtown, followed by tasty gelato!

F.A.Q.

Nope! This retreat is for runners of all abilities. You will have the opportunity to go shorter or longer on the runs,  and we have three guides to assist different paced groups. It is advised that you’ve been on a trail before, as 90% of this retreat will be run on trails.

Boulder is located at about 5,500ft and the highest we will climb is 8,500ft. It is hard to say how the altitude will affect any one person, since we are all different. Generally, you will want to focus on staying hydrated, and making sure you are taking in proper nutrition during activity. You’ll find that breathing can be a bit harder, but adjusting to a relaxed pace will help you feel more comfortable. One trick that may help you prepare: Train in the warmer hours of the day to increase your heart rate, thus experiencing fatigue at a quicker than normal rate. This is comparable to what it will feel like at altitude.

Yes! Happy to make sure you can enjoy our tasty meals safely.  Let us know your dietary restriction/s and any potential allergies on the participant Q&A after you sign up for the retreat. 

Weather is always unpredictable in the mountains, so we advise you to include a variety of apparel. Tank, short-sleeve and long sleeve shirts, shorts and 3/4 tights, socks. Trail shoes! A hat, BUFF, sunglasses, and sunblock. Hydration system that can carry 1.5-2 liters or more of water. Your favorite snacks or energy nutrition for the adventures. A light rain or wind jacket. And one non-spandex outfit for our dinner  on Pearl Street.
