About the Retreat
Club Northwest will host its first ever Northwest Women’s Running Retreat this coming summer to celebrate all that encompasses a well-balanced running lifestyle.
The retreat will include a weekend of running trails through Moran State Park on Orcas Island, hearing from local experts in the running and health community, and enjoying R & R in beautiful surroundings with fellow runners and friends.
While hosted by Club Northwest, this event is open to women across all ages and ability levels who are passionate about running. There are no speed requirements and we will plan running routes that accommodate those hoping to go longer (10 + miles) or shorter (5 + miles) so that everyone can take part.
Guest speakers will include:
