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.

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 move the party to Pearl Street on Saturday evening for a great meal downtown, followed by tasty gelato!

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.
