May 11, 2021 (CARBONDALE, COLORADO)—Run Wild Retreats + Wellness, a travel company specializing in premier women’s running and wellness retreats, is launching a new four-day retreat called the Stillwater Lake Trail Running and Wellness Retreat taking place July 8 – 11, 2021.
The women-only retreat, designed specifically for experienced runners, features four days of guided runs on some of Whitefish, Montana’s best trails. The daily runs range from five 10 miles at a social pace, offering plenty of stops along the way to enjoy the surrounding mountain views. As part of Run Wild Retreats’ Presence Policy, participants are encouraged to leave turn off GPS-enabled devices and put phones on airplane mode so that they can run more mindfully. The dedicated retreat leader, who is with the group throughout the retreat, provides guidance on how to run mindfully in order to maximize running’s stress-reducing effects.
The Stillwater Lake Trail Running + Wellness Retreat is based out of the Roam Beyond glamping site at Stillwater Point, located 15 minutes outside the resort town of Whitefish, Montana. The camp features a collection of handcrafted, sustainable mobile dwellings that let you feel close to nature without having to sacrifice comfort or modern conveniences. Each mobile “cabin” feature Scandinavian-style light hardwood interiors with built-in beds, feather duvets and fluffy pillows, hot water and shower, stovetop, kitchen supplies for cooking, refrigeration, power for lighting and charging devices and private bathroom.
Each day’s run, held on a different local trail, is balanced with lazy afternoons at camp, where participants may enjoy a swim in the lake, paddleboarding, a private lakeside yin yoga class designed for runners, a quiet walk on the 2,000-acre wooded property or a nap. The retreat package includes farm-to-table dinners, evening campfires with gourmet s’mores and a live musical performance at Stillwater Landing.
Retreat packages for the July 8 – 11 trip start at $2,250 USD per person for two people sharing a cabin, with private (single-occupancy) cabins available for $2,695, and include all meals, professional running guide, dedicated retreat leader, all meals from Thursday dinner through Sunday lunch, three night’s accommodation, ground transportation to trails, Run Wild Retreats gift bag, yoga class and more. Airport transfers from Glacier Park International Airport are available for an additional fee. Space is limited to just 14 runners.
