*Runs vary in length – there’s a 3 mile and 5 mile ‘turn off’ on the Smoky Mtn Runs. Saturday offers a slightly longer run if desired and time permitting.

* The price is all inclusive except Thursday evening off site & Sunday Brunch.

* Spouses/SO Package allows for spousal/SO participation in any, all, or none of the activities – their choice.

*This is a Runners Retreat – It is designed to be fun, educational, exciting, challenging, and did I say fun? It’s a long weekend spent with terrific people in a beautiful section of the South running, exploring, learning and improving. ALL instructors are *Certified Run Coaches*, *Certified Yoga Instructor*, *Certified Pilates Group Instructor* and *Certified Personal Trainer*. There will NOT be a more qualified staff in the Southeast!

Your reservation is secure with a $99 non-refundable deposit (though it is transferable). Rooms are available on a 1st-arrive basis – though ALL rooms are nice.

In the event we have several ‘roommate’ situations we will reserve those rooms for the ‘doubles’.

The Retreat is currently over Half-Booked so please do not delay – we will have a waiting list and will move to fill reservations as quickly as possible.
