After three years of conversations with amazing women from around this country, we believe we’ve created an experience where every woman can receive what she needs, wants and deserves. Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE a good race. We’ve attended dozens of them and have created fantastic partnerships with women’s-only races to elevate the experience for their participants. We so appreciate how these races honor a woman’s accomplishment when she crosses the finish line, and now, we’re ready to create the space where women can discuss, share and celebrate the reasons and motivations that got them there.
We love meaningful connection. If you’ve met us, you know that all we really want is to hear your story. But most often, our time with you is cut short – the expo line is long, you’re in a hurry, we’re in a hurry and there’s just not enough time to truly connect, unplug and share.
We also know how many of you phenomenal women are out there who think, act, love and live just like us. We know you, but now it’s time for you all to connect and know each other. We have these pockets of women in all corners of the country who – if brought into the same room – may seriously set records for laughter, fun and a damn good time. Oh, the fun we will have. Arizona, meet Florida. Michigan, meet California. Wisconsin, meet North Carolina.
And let’s face it, while the running community is one of the most supportive and inviting out there, when you’re just starting out, it can be super intimidating. I don’t look like them. I don’t know as much. I’m not as experienced. I don’t know anyone. I’m not as fast. I can’t go that far. I won’t fit in. I’m ridiculous for thinking I can do this. The thought of starting lines, finish lines, race bibs and chip timing can be a daunting enough reason for women to sit on the sidelines.
So, what if we took all of that away and just focused on your LOVE of running. The WHY behind your miles. The REASONS you want to get out there. The PURPOSE behind your effort. The STORY inside of you that deserves to be shared. We wanted a space for all women – the elites, the goalchasers, the newbies, the just-for-funs and the ones who are tip-toeing toward the sport and want a safe space to ask any and ALL questions so they can feel ready, confident and excited to start their journey.
So many of our big lessons, great conversations, connections and deep self reflections have come from our everyday running, both alone and in stride with our friends. Races celebrate finish lines. We were looking for a space that celebrates the journey of getting there.
Rock Retreat Run was created so women had a choice. We wanted them to come in knowing that they had choices of when, if, how fast, or how far. We didn’t want women showing up having that “race day” stress and preparation hanging over their heads. This can prevent even the most experienced runner from fulling stepping in and enjoying all of the moments.
The title of our event includes run, but it’s about so much more.
Ladies, your reward is not a race medal, it’s renewal. Will you join us?
P.S. Registration is now live and we have limited availability for our rock star rate so be sure to register ASAP before these spots are gone!
