Run Wild Retreats

Run and Travel Mindfully

Run Wild Retreats + Wellness specializes in trail running- and wellness-based travel experiences that support women’s overall health and well being. Our programs feature mindful running techniques that help the women run better while maximizing running’s stress-reducing effects on the body and mind. Set in some of the world’s most inspiring natural destinations known to runners, each itinerary is an immersion in nature and wellness experiences such as yoga, hot springs or spa.

While our purpose is to provide amazing running experiences for women like you, our mission is to offer you the time and space to clear your mind and focus on breathing deeply, connecting with nature, dialing down the stress, and releasing endorphins so that you can relish in the joy and inspiration running brings.

Founder and CEO Elinor Fish has worked in the travel, tourism and running industries since 1999. The Canadian ex-pat, who now calls Colorado home, has long been an avid trail runner, writer and traveler, having lived most her adult life abroad. She spent four years as the managing editor of Trail Runner magazine and founded Run Wild Retreats + Wellness in 2010. Drawing from her career in tourism marketing for such destinations as Banff and Lake Louise (Canada), the Province of Alberta and Catalina Island, California, she has grown Run Wild Retreats Inc into an international travel company offering running and wellness-focused tours in six countries.

As a writer, Elinor has written numerous magazine articles and recorded dozens of podcasts about mindful running that have helped thousands of runners make their running a mindfulness practice to reduce their stress, overcome obstacles to consistent running and improve their overall well being.

She lives in the mountain town of Carbondale, Colorado, with her mountain-bike loving son and husband, and their senior black Lab.
