Trail Sisters presents Run With Her Women’s Trail Running Retreat – North Conway! This women’s only retreat is open to 20 participants and will be hosted in New Hampshire’s most popular and iconic mountain town, North Conway.
Run With Her Retreats presents women with the opportunity to experience the sport of trail running in a non-intimidating environment, provides informative workshops on various aspects of the sport and the outdoors, while creating camaraderie and life-long friendships.
We chose North Conway because of it’s picturesque fall colors and for the ultimate leaf-peepin’ trail experience. Additionally, the Northeast terrain is quite unique as compared to other regions and we wanted to provide an opportunity for Trail Sisters to discover and enjoy it. Finally, the local trail community is very welcoming and we want to share their knowledge, town and backyard with you!

Run With Her Retreat Leaders
Gina Lucrezi | Host & Trail Sisters Founder
Gina has always been stubborn and bold, so when it came to advocating for women’s rights and equality in the outdoors (and in general), she was bound to make some changes. Gina’s main goal is to help create opportunities and grow participation in women’s trail running. And with that said, she is the Founder of TrailSisters.net . Gina is also a professional ultra trail runner, and when she’s not on the trails logging miles, she’s most likely trying to potty train her new Airedale pup, Ezra. #buystockinpapertowels ….
Heidi Kumm | Co-Host & Wilderness Awareness Leader
Heidi is a mountain girl at heart, although she was raised on a Midwestern farm. Since her arrival in Colorado, Heidi has discovered trail running, rock climbing, backpacking + backcountry splitboarding. She is currently living in Silverthorne, Colorado near a handful of mountain ski resorts with her boyfriend, Robb, + his black lab, Max. When Heidi isn’t out exploring the local trails she’s working the winter season in an ER at the base of a ski resort + the summer months roaming the world as a freelance writer.

Kasie lives in Huntington, Vermont with her husband, two children, cat, and dreams of adding farm animals to the mix. Her job status is complicated, but includes producing maple syrup, outdoor education, directing First Strides Vermont, being a board member of the Green Mountain Athletic Association, and race director of the Sleepy Hollow Mountain Race. A Kasie is the 2011 World Mountain Running Champion and was runner-up at the World Long Distance Mountain Running Championship in 2017.
