Trail Sisters & CamelBak present 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.

North Conway is the adventure gateway to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. This quaint outdoorsy town packs a punch when it comes to views, food, community and recreation. The trails meander through lush forests and will keep you on your toes as you dance over famed Northeast rocks and roots. This location is near and dear to Trail Sisters founder, Gina Lucrezi because of the beauty, refuge and comfort it provided when she wanted to escape for some mountain time from the Boston area. Though the retreat is only four days in length, we will fit in lots of exploration on the trails, time to enjoy the town of North Conway and its shops, educational workshops to build your outdoor knowledge and self-confidence, a chance to make new life long friends and maybe a few wildlife sitings if we’re lucky!

Gina Lucrezi

Gina Lucrezi

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. Gina is the founder of Trail Sisters and when she’s not on the trails logging miles, she’s most likely trying to potty train her new Airedale pup, Ezra.

Heidi Kumm

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.
