About Run Fast. Eat Slow. Retreats

NY Times Best-Selling Cookbook Author, Elyse Kopecky, invites you to join team Run Fast. Eat Slow. for a memorable week of trail running, outdoor adventure, nourishment, & community.


Rise, Run and Relax in stunning destinations. Every retreat features tranquil accommodations, top-notch culinary experiences, scenic running, relaxing yoga, and local experiences!


We’ve carefully planned and scouted our 2024 retreat destinations with an experienced team to offer you a vacation where all you need to do is show up ready to run. Nourish yourself with laughter, delicious food, fresh air, and mountain miles.

We keep our group size small (20 to 25 guests per retreat) to allow for maximum connection and to accommodate all running levels (on the trails we break into smaller groups with experienced mountain guides). Run Fast. Eat Slow. Retreats sell out fast. To be reminded when registration opens, join our email list. Read below for details on each retreat.
