FAQ

 1.  What ability of running/hiking is needed?

The retreat is directed towards runners and hikers of all ability levels. We will be running/hiking with opportunities for up to 1-5 hours each day. You will be able to shorten the routes to a level you are comfortable  with each day. The routes will be 95% trail, in the mountains with significant ascents and descents.

2.  I am not a fast runner will I be able to keep up with the pace?

Yes. We will have three group leaders and welcome hikers as well as all levels of runners.

3.  I’m not used to altitude and mountain running. Will I be able to attend your retreat.

Everyone is different in how they react to altitude. You may have to slow down or hike to adjust to the altitude. We will have routes on varied terrains and allow our participants to pick the terrains they are most comfortable with. You will be doing a significant amount of climbing but will be hiking most of the climbs. At our previous retreats, most runners without mountain experience were a bit nervous but had no problem keeping up with their running group and enjoying the retreat.

4.  I’ve never meditated before and I’m not sure I am capable of sitting still. Is that okay?

Yes! This is an introductory guide to mindfulness and meditation.The mindfulness workshops will be open to participants with no experience of mindfulness.  It will be very approachable and hands on. For participant with mindfulness experience, it will be a great opportunity to grow your  mindfulness practice.

5.  What altitude will we be at?

Boulder is at an elevation of 5500 feet and will be climbing up to 8500 feet.

6.  Do I need to stay at the host hotel?

 No – but you will need to get yourself to and from Host Hotel for activities.

7.  Can you accommodate special dietary needs? 

Yes – we accommodate special dietary needs. When you register we have a question asking about your dietary needs.  You should state what your needs are.  For example:  Vegan, Paleo, No Dairy, etc. and we will provide the appropriate food for you.
