The Northwest Women’s Running Retreat 2019

August 2 - 4, Orcas Island

Registration is closed for 2019, but stay tuned for 2020 dates!

NWWRR 2019


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.

About the Retreat

This retreat includes a weekend of running trails through Moran State Park and around Eastsound on Orcas Island. We also work with Ruth Perkins of Perkins Coaching to learn about important strength routines for runners.

And maybe most importantly, there will be a lot of time devoted to 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.

Activities and Events

Our lineup for 2019 will include the following:

  • Strength work for runners with Ruth Perkins of Perkins Coaching.

  • A fun and interactive session with Dance Church!

  • A journaling session led by Julia Reade.

  • A cycling option around Orcas Island led by Julia Reade. This is perfect for runners looking for a cross-training option during the retreat.

  • A restorative flow yoga session led by Lana Lacey.

Please note that while we think all activities that we offer are amazing, everything is completely optional!

Where we run

Moran State Park Trails and around Eastsound. For those running trails, we will be starting from Mountain Lake trail head, which is about a 15-minute drive from Golden Tree Hostel. These trails are super well marked and offer many different options in length and difficulty depending on what everyone is interested doing. We will have multiple groups going different routes and distances.

We also recognize that trail running isn't for everyone and so we will also be offering road options through and around downtown Eastsound.
