Our locally based team knows this destination inside and out and are with you every step of the way to have an unforgettable immersion in Telluride's unparalleled mountain beauty. Trail running at at such high elevation can be tough, which is why we've selected trails that strike an ideal balance between runnability and scenic reward.
You'll enjoy a mix of running and hiking on well-established trails on rolling terrain that will involve some uphills and downhills, but avoids major climbs, exposed terrain or high peaks. Since running at 9,000 feet in elevation is challenging, we'll keep the pace relaxed and take frequent breaks to snack, hydrate and enjoy the views.
We'll spend about half the day on the trail, practicing the mindful running techniques offered by your retreat leader and savoring each day's run, always ending with a picnic lunch followed by free time to explore the town, enjoy the spa at The Peaks Resort, private yoga and the option to add a spa massage to your package.
The total run distance for this retreat will be between approximately 22 and 28 miles. Each day's run in this itinerary is represented by time spent on the trail rather than miles run because the mileage covered will depend largely on your run pace. Note that since all the runs take place at high elevation, our pace will be relatively slow and involve lots of hiking sections.
