Welcome to the home page of the Northwest Women's Running Retreat!


To provide women of the Pacific Northwest across all ages who are passionate about running with the opportunity to come together and celebrate each other and all that encompasses a well-balanced running lifestyle.


August 11-13, 2017


The Golden Tree Hostel

1159 N Beach Rd, Eastsound, WA 98245

Check out www.goldentreehostel.com for more details, and our "Location Details" page. We are renting out the entire hostel so we will have the place to ourselves.


This will be a weekend of running through beautiful Moran State Park on Orcas Island and of celebrating all that goes into a well-balanced running lifestyle. There will also be opportunities to kayak, swim, bike, hike or to just sit back enjoy some R & R surrounded by fellow runners and friends. See the "Retreat Schedule" page for details.

Events and speakers are still in the works with more details coming soon, check out our "Guest Speakers" page for the most updated information. However, the Golden Tree Hostel looks amazing and we can’t wait (there is a sauna, hot tub and outdoor woodfire pizza oven for starters).

The women of Club Northwest are organizing this event, but it is open to all Northwest women who are passionate about running across all ages and ability levels. 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. We may include the option to do a light speed workout but that will not be the focus of this event.


The cost of this event will be $250. This price includes lodging, two (2) breakfasts, a pizza dinner on the final night, as well as goodies from our wonderful Sponsors.

Golden Tree Hostel has a full kitchen for any food preparation and is less than a mile from the town of Eastsound, which has a grocery store for your food and drink needs.

Also, we are looking into group ferry reservations and will keep you informed as that information comes together.
