Swiss Alps Trail Running Retreat
Brand athlete Krissy Moehl to lead women’s running retreat July 10-16, 2017

Red Wing, MN – March 9, 2017 - Vasque footwear, a family-owned company with more than 50 years of experience in the outdoor footwear sector, is pleased to announce it has signed on as the footwear sponsor of this July’s Swiss Alps Trail Running Retreat for Women, presented by Run Wild Retreats + Wellness. Vasque will support its athlete and retreat leader Krissy Moehl and provide new trail-running footwear to all retreat attendees.

Run Wild Retreats + Wellness provides premier women’s running and wellness retreats in some of the world’s best trail-running destinations. Using mindful running techniques to cultivate deeper self-compassion, intentional training, confidence and self-care, retreat participants learn how to keep running fun, enjoyable, stress-reducing and sustainable.

“I couldn’t think of a better person to lead this women’s trail running retreat in the Swiss Alps than Vasque athlete Krissy Moehl, who I’ve long admired,” says Elinor Fish, CEO and founder of Run Wild Retreats + Wellness. “Krissy is an inspirational figure because of her balanced approach to running and health, which is the secret to her longevity in a sport where many burn out. Retreat participants will learn a lot from her.”

Under the guidance of Vasque sponsored athlete and champion trail runner Krissy Moehl and professional guides, the 12 attendees of the Swiss Alps Trail Running Retreat for Women will explore the Bernese Oberland, where snow-capped peaks–notably the Eiger and Jungfrau–are visible daily. As one of the world’s most accomplished long-distance trail runners whose competitive career spans 15 years and six continents, Krissy will share with her secrets for mountain running mastery and running longevity in a non-competitive, supportive environment.

More information and retreat registration is available here:

On March 28 at 2 p.m. PT, 5 p.m. ET, Vasque and Run Wild Retreats + Wellness will present a free online “Ask the Coach” workshop with Krissy. Participants can submit their questions prior to the workshop, which she’ll answer live on the air. This workshop is free and open to the public. Click here to RSVP:
