Mike Smith is Director of Running Vacations at The Run SMART Project. Below he sets the stage for our running retreats this summer in Flagstaff, AZ, (July 15th-20th, July 22nd-27th). Registration is now open. Hope you can join us in July!
Our summer retreats are absolutely amazing weeks: 20 runners from all across the country in one of the best locations to run on earth, educational and motivational speakers, world class coaches and Olympic athletes, excellent all inclusive dining, Sedona, Grand Canyon, endless soft trails, and great “summer in the mountains” weather.
Expect each day to begin with loading up our vans to drive to a scenic run (distance and pace left up to the runner), and then returning to the hotel for breakfast. We’ll do an afternoon educational session or bring in one of our speakers, off to lunch, a second session or activity (stretching, yoga, drills, etc), an optional run, then dinner.
We jokingly call this the “Eating Retreat” instead of a Running Retreat because we do a lot of eating this week and love taking you out to Flagstaff’s best restaurants. All meals, minus two lunches, are covered in the registration fee.
The hotel is the Embassy Suites Flagstaff and all attendees have their own two room suite. We take care of every detail once you’re here, you just get to go along for the ride. It’s a very special week and we’re really proud of what we’re able to deliver.
Hope to see you in July!
