Run Wild Retreats + Wellness, a provider of premier women’s running and wellness retreats in the world’s best trail-running destinations, has partnered with Eleven Experience to offer a unique mindful running retreat at its new lodge in Northern Iceland, Deplar Farm.

The Northern Iceland Mindful Running Retreat takes place August 17 – 21, 2017 and combines daily guided trail runs of five to nine miles with spa treatments, wellness workshops, mindful running coaching, chef-prepared gourmet meals, whale watching and more. Deplar Farm, which opened in spring 2016, is nestled among towering peaks and sparsely populated, grassy fjords.

“Participants will learn the mindfulness techniques that not only improve their running, but helps them become more resilient to stress in all areas of life,” says Run Wild Retreats + Wellness CEO Elinor Fish, who is leading the mindful running workshops. “The frantic pace of modern life makes it hard to truly unwind and be present, so it helps to step away from the busy-ness of one’s life and experience the beauty and serenity Northern Iceland has to offer.”

The five-day, four-night Northern Iceland Mindful Running Retreat package includes lodging and gourmet meals as well as little luxuries designed to help the runners recharge their energy and de-stress with their choice of recovery activities. For example, guests may swim in Deplar Farm’s geothermal-heated, indoor-outdoor infinity pool or soak in a saltwater-filled sensory deprivation pod, which helps heal a weary body and soothe a busy mind. Participants also receive Fish’s six-week mindful running coaching program before the retreat and post-retreat support in continuing their wellness practice at home.

While some running fitness is recommended, it’s not necessary to have any experience with trail running or mindfulness to participate in this retreat. Retreat packages include choice of private King suites or double occupancy Queen loft suites. Registration for this and other retreats is open now at www.RunWildRetreats.com.
