The YYCRunCrew (Re)Treat

Coming this June 15-17, a weekend of connections, trails, run, and smiles.

The YYCRunCrew (Re)Treat is a collaboration between Wander Adventure Co and Wholistic Health YYC.  The intention of this retreat is bring runners from across Alberta to the beautiful Kananaskis Valley to reconnect with the mountains and each other.  From our base camp at the Sundance Lodges each day we will embark on two runs, with a post run yoga session at the end of the day to decompress.

The retreat will be limited to just twenty guests, so stay tuned here for details.

Enthusiast | If you’re an enthusiast, to us that means you stay sweaty with activities like spin, yoga, barre, running, or cycling, at least once a week.  The daily distances are relatively short, and there are many to put extra kilometres in.  The trip is perfect for a range riding abilities from guests who’re just getting on the bike for the first time since they were a kid, all the way up to more serious people who want to take advantage of the more challenging options offered almost every day.

The Run (Re) Treat is the darling of Wander Adventure Co founding partner Raf Lopez, and Wander Adventure Co Ambassador and Sally Powis Campbell of Wholistic Health YYC.   The intention of this retreat is to bring runners together by connecting with the trails, through yoga, and at  fireside talks.  Its our way of saying thank you to the YYCRunCrew Community, and creating excitement about Alberta’s run scene and what’s to come.
