Run Wild Retreats, the Colorado-based running and wellness company founded by mindful running coach Elinor Fish, is leading a trail-running retreat showcasing the Arctic nation’s best offerings for outdoorsy, health-minded women. The Iceland Trail Running + Wellness Retreat, taking place August 2 - 8, 2016, is an immersion in healthy running techniques while exploring Iceland’s diverse landscape.
“Iceland’s natural beauty and accessible trail system makes it an ideal place for trail running,” says Fish. “The retreat features go-at-your-own-pace guided runs with free time to relax, rejuvenate and socialize with other women who share your passion for running, wellness, travel and adventure.”
The week-long itinerary includes Wellness Workshops, natural running form clinics, a running tour of the capitol city of Reykjavik, guided runs along the famous black-sand beaches of Vik and mountain trails in The Valley of Thor, which offer views of rugged peaks and gleaming glaciers.
Throughout the retreat, guests dine on traditional Scandinavian cuisine using local ingredients such as vegetables grown in geothermal greenhouses, free-range dairy and wild-caught seafood. The retreat ends with a restorative afternoon at The Blue Lagoon, home to mineral-rich, geothermal hot springs renowned for their healing properties.
Space is limited to just 14 participants. Registration is open until May 1, 2016 at www.RunWildRetreats.com. The retreat package includes the transformative Mindful Running Training System and two private coaching sessions with Elinor Fish.
The Iceland Trail Running + Wellness Retreat is the most popular of Run Wild Retreats’ suite of mindful running immersions in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
