Ultimate Runners Retreat – South of France

We are beyond excited for our latest adventure. The location for our retreat is the incredible St Jean’s Retreat at Cordes-Sur-Ceil. Our hosts at St Jeans are the wonderful Chris and Liz (runners themselves) and the venue is the childhood home of Chris whose parents bought a ruin in the 80s and have turned it into somewhere just amazing.

meals are prepared fresh by local chefs and served in one of the many group dining areas at our private venue. The foods are locally grown organic or Bio as it is in France.

The whole setup is incredible. To have running trails passing literally through the garden and an indoor and outdoor yoga deck for us to balance out the leisurely miles couldn’t be more perfect.

The focus of our May 2020 trip will be on helping you relax, rejuvenate, run and rest. Helping your running motivation, technique and strength will be an added bonus too. As always with our getaways there is plenty of chats about running (and other stuff!), chill out time and sightseeing. Did we mention the pool?

So here is our plan:
