Let’s explore somewhere new together!
Nestled in majestic Adirondack Park, Lake Placid, NY, is one of the most beloved winter playgrounds in the U.S. Yet us runners (and hikers!) are convening in this alpine village at the tail end of summer, when we can still run in a single layer of workout wear, open-water swim, stand-up paddleboard, kayak, hike, and enjoy drinks al fresco. Lake Placid has a charming, walkable downtown—where our retreat host hotel is located—yet you’re never far from nature. It offers easy access to the breathtaking, unspoiled beauty of Adirondack Park—6.1 million acres of trails, rivers, streams, wildlife habitat, and more.
Our host hotel, High Peaks Resort, is at one end of lovely Main Street. Filled with so many unique restaurants, cafes, and shops, a walk around town is a fun way to spend time with friends old and new. The resort is also located on the banks of Mirror Lake, the beautiful in-town lake that is only accessible by human-powered crafts (meaning no power boats!). A 3-mile running/walking route, where we’ll do morning excursions, circles Mirror Lake.
Whether you want to learn running guidance and advice from experts; run and/or hike; swim in or paddle on Mirror Lake; enjoy a yoga session or two; be part of a podcast recording; croon karaoke at the farewell dinner; or befriend other women runners, you will be delighted by the extended-weekend offerings.
Join a bevy of women runners for this 4-day, 3-night Run + Refresh Retreat in Lake Placid, New York, Friday, September 6 – Monday, September 9, 2024.
