HOW THE RETREAT WILL WORK

REGISTRATION

The deposit due today is $445. The deposit is refundable up until we ask to confirm the final payment May. At this point, the deposit will not be refundable. The final payment will be $445. Thus, the total cost of the retret is $890.

Once your deposit is confirmed, we will email you confirmation and keep you updated on the itinerary, etc. 

We will also collect travel details and arrange airport pickups when we collect the final payment. We will then email you 4-6 weeks with exact airport pickup times and all travel details.

ACCOMODATIONS

We will be staying at the Zap Fitness Facility in Blowing Rock, NC. The location is home to a professional training group and set in a quite, scenic valley. 

The facility is a 24 bed, 2 story lodge with wood floors throughout all the rooms and carpet in the main lounge area. The rooms are equipped with comfortable double pillow-top twin beds. Most of the rooms have 2 beds for double occupancy, but we do have a limited number of single rooms with just one bed. Each room shares a full bathroom with an adjacent room, with the exception of 2 private bath suites reserved for couples. Guests will be provided sheets and towels for their stay. The adjacent building includes our dining room and weight room.  

TRAVEL AND LOGISTICS

You should plan to fly into the Charlotte airport. It’s a large airport, so it should have numerous flight options from your location. If you are local, you can also drive to facility.  

We will pick you up from the airport. We will group everyone into 2-3 groups depending on arrival time. Activities will start Thursday afternoon, so it is best to arrive sometime before 1pm.  

We will drop you off at the airport on Sunday around 11am  

FOOD

Food will be provided by the amazing Chef Michael. He will create runner-specific lunches and dinners for the entire stay. Coach Michael specializes in creating meals for the elite runners at the facility and the food is beyond amazing. 

If you have dietary restrictions, we will collect this information when we take the final payment and we will accomodate anything you need.  

TRAINING AND ABILTY LEVEL

We schedule all running locations and times to accomodate your training. We have athletes running from 3-20 miles during the weekend depending on their goal race distance and current fitness. If you need help determining what would be best for you, we can help you determine the optimal runs for you. This ensures that the training while at the retreat will fit perfectly with your fall racing plans.

All speeds and experience levels are welcome.  

As you know, we don’t care how fast or slow you are, we just want you to have fun and run well! I guarantee you will have someone to run with and make new friends the entire weekend. In 2018 we had everyone from a 5:30 marathoner to a 19 min 5k runner...and we had a blast!
