Spring Road Running Retreat

May 6 - May 11


Spring Road Running Retreat

This is the program for those who are truly hesitant (even if unjustified 😊) about their running skills.  All runs are optional, with flexible distances, and never any pressure to run farther than your happiness wants to go.  Helen will be joined by Richard Harriman, an experienced facilitator who started running late in life and knows that fun is the best part of any functional fitness regimen.  Both leaders are familiar with the best and most beautiful road and running routes nearby, many starting just beyond our retreat center’s gates, and you’ll be sure to have fun, share the food and culture of Crete, and leave with a healthy attitude and new friends.
