BEND HALF / 10K
TRAINING CLUB & RETREAT
Train with us this winter – to race with us in the spring!
This winter we are training together for the Bend Half Marathon and 10K! The training club is virtual, and you'll have the choice of joining us in Bend, OR on April 10th, 2022, or racing virtually wherever you are.
As part of this program, we are also hosting our very first race weekend running retreat in beautiful Sunriver for a small group of participants! We're excited to take a team to gorgeous Central Oregon and experience a fun running and activity-filled weekend together.
This training club takes the place of our signature program in the winter/spring of 2022.
The 12-week Bend Training Club starts on January 17th, 2022. You'll get a training plan for your chosen distance and level, and enjoy comprehensive coaching support and group motivation to keep you going! You'll enjoy training with a team of like-minded women, and whether you join us in Bend or race elsewhere you'll be sure to make new running friends and go into your race feeling fully prepared and confident!
For those running in Bend but not taking part in the retreat weekend, we'll make sure to get together as a team before or after the race. This option gives you the flexibility of traveling with family and on your own schedule.
Our race weekend retreat completes this training and racing experience! With space available for just 6 women, it promises to be a memorable team event to finish off your winter season of training. We'll take time to relax, connect, and celebrate your achievements.
The retreat package includes lodging in a shared house, all your meals and snacks, and additional group activities (technique workshop, foam rolling and stretching, walks or bike rides, shakeout runs). Relax in the hot tub, take in the beautiful Sunriver surroundings on foot or by bike, visit Bend for shopping, and spend quality time with your teammates. Our weekend schedule allows for quiet time and flexibility as well as some planned activities – not forgetting the long-awaited race day and post-race celebrations!
