Womens Running Retreat


June 7th 2024 to June 14th 2024

Please join us for a womens only 7 night running retreat on the beautiful island of Crete, Greece

Relaxed running retreat where you will experience all the great that Crete has to offer… beautiful trails, delicious food, fabulous weather.  We will run a combination of roads and easy trails (suitable even if you have no trail running experience) along coastlines, up mountains and through villages.  When not running we will relax and enjoy some cultural activities including wine tasting, swimming and beach time.  We will stay in a beautiful retreat centre nestled in olive groves with views of the sea and we’ll be eating sumptuous local cuisine.
