Run Wild Retreats + Wellness, a travel company providing premier women’s trail running and wellness retreats in five countries, has added Ireland to its roster of 2018 retreats. Mindful running coach and company founder Elinor Fish is leading the seven-day Ireland Trail Running + Wellness Retreat taking place September 16-22, 2018. She will be teaching trail-running skills and wellness workshops throughout the itinerary.
Modeled after its popular international retreats in Iceland, Spain, Italy and the U.S., the Ireland Trail Running + Wellness Retreat offers women a week-long immersion in healthy running techniques while exploring the Emerald Isle’s forests, national parks, famous cliffs and moors.
“You don’t need any previous experience running trails to enjoy this retreat in Ireland,” says Fish. “We keep the daily run distances doable and take our time to soak in the views, eat and drink along the way and have a lot of fun. There’s never any pressure to keep up and each runner can go at her own pace.”
Starting in Dublin, the retreat begins in the trail-running hub of County Wicklow, where they will experience the famous “Wicklow Way” and scenic trails surrounding the town of Glendalough. From there, they head to west to run along the iconic Cliffs of Moher before heading south to County Clare to run trails through the many wonders of Killarney National Park, such as Torc Waterfall and Esknamucky Glen.
Included in the retreat package is accommodation in historic hotels, all meals, transportation, run coaching and wellness workshops. Irish guides accompany the runners for the daily trail runs that vary between 5 and 12 miles and feature a variety of terrain, environments and points of natural and historical interest.
As with all of Run Wild Retreats + Wellness’s offerings, the retreat is more than a running vacation; it offers women an opportunity to reinvest in their health and wellbeing by stepping away from their usual routines, to be re-inspired, re-charged and re-invigorated. They learn not only how to run well, but also to be well.
