We believe in the transformative power of running. Do you? Join us for a retreat founded by women for women, where we’ll gather and celebrate our shared love of running, and connect this shared love with a renewed sense of purpose, and commitment to ourselves and our strengths.  

Are you looking to:

  • Connect and bond with other like-minded women?

  • Gain confidence?

  • Prioritize and align your goals and time?

  • Improve your problem solving and action planning skills?

  • Be a more effective communicator?

 
 

join us for this transformative weekend retreat

The two and a half day retreat will allow us time and space to connect with each other while sharing our running stories, reflect on our personal and professional challenges and opportunities still ahead of us, and cheer each other on as we take on the 1-miler, 10k race, or half marathon!

The weekend will be chock full of moments of self-reflection, brave conversations, and personal and professional growth. Let’s have honest conversations about how we take care of ourselves, dig deeper in to making impossible goals possible, and build a sisterhood of other badass women who will become our tribe helping us to get there.

Whether you’re a new runner or an ultrarunner, this retreat is for you. Even if you’re still curious about running and ready to start, join us! All ages, paces, and bodies belong here. In rallying a community of women who love to run, our mission is to connect you to a sisterhood of badass women who support your goals in running and life.

 What level runner do I have to be to attend?

Whether you’re a new runner or an ultrarunner, this retreat is for you. Even if you’re still curious about running and ready to start, join us! All ages, paces, and bodies belong here. In rallying a community of women who love to run, our mission is to connect you to a sisterhood of badass women who support your goals in running and life. You can participate in the Zooma Cape Cod 10k or Half Marathon (or if you’d like, come for the cheer squad!). 

What does the schedule look like?

Obviously, we know the races will be the cornerstone of the weekend so we are planning around making sure you are race-ready for Sunday! Friday we will be gathering together and getting to know each other and our own values more closely. We’ll end the evening at a kickoff wine and cheese reception to celebrate the start of our retreat weekend. Saturday will allow for time for yoga and packet pickup, along with a day filled with discussions on leadership styles and wellness, training on effective communication, exercises to help with problem-solving, and lots of movement breaks to make sure our bodies are ready for Sunday. We’ll end the day at the Zooma bonfire and run or cheer on those running the 1 miler that evening. Sunday is race day, followed by VIP massages, a lunch celebration to top all celebrations, and a closing session to plan for action when you leave the retreat.

 I'm a new runner. Will I fit in?

Abso-freakin-lutely! And you’ll leave with a new sisterhood of women runners who will cheer on your upcoming miles and races, even after the retreat is over!

 I've run countless races. What will I get out of it?

Lots! We are bringing top leadership development content to YOU as a runner. We’ll connect with the power and strength we get from running and apply it to any challenges we are facing in our lives, personal or professional. Plus, any time a group of women get together, magic happens! Come be a part of it.

 Will we be on our feet a lot during the retreat? What about preparing for the race?

The retreat is being planned and organized by runners FOR runners! We will be sure to keep you hydrated for race day, and pay attention to what our bodies need. You won’t be on your feet too much, but we will have opportunities for movement breaks to keep us flexible. And with opportunities to do the shakeout run Friday, morning yoga on Saturday, and the 1-mile run Saturday evening, you will be ready to go come race morning!

 Will I get to explore Cape Cod?

Falmouth is known for its beaches and you’ll be staying right on one! We definitely want to leave you some time to relax on the beach and also be sure that we spend some serious quality time together. Friday evening we’ll leave the hotel to head to a beautiful garden for the opening reception and will be stopping along the way to visit the lighthouse and take a group photo.

 I live on or near Cape Cod or I’d like to stay somewhere else. Can I come?

For sure! Retreat fee does not include price of accommodations so feel free to commute from home or another hotel or AirBnB. All retreat activities will take place at the SeaCrest Hotel, other than the wine and cheese reception.

Should I attend solo?

Definitely! Or bring a buddy! You’ll have a new tribe of running sisters by the end of the retreat anyway… this, we promise!

What's included in the retreat fee?

Exclusive retreat programming all weekend long; VIP treatment on race day (including massages and special swag); access to the private facebook group to connect with fellow retreat sisters in advance; live video discussions to connect about training for the race, prep for the retreat, and get tips for race day; a training plan for the 10k or half marathon; Power Breakfast Bag for race morning and a celebratory luncheon on Sunday; swag bag with freebies and resources and retreat materials; all Zooma Cape Cod weekend events; and a sisterhood of badass women cheering you on all weekend!

 Will there be carpool options to Falmouth?

Yes! We’ll be coordinating rides from Boston and Logan Airport through the private facebook group. No need for a car once you’re in Falmouth.

 What time should I arrive in Falmouth and plan to depart on Sunday?

The retreat officially kicks off at 3pm on Friday, but we’ll be doing an optional shakeout run at 2pm Friday so come early to join in! Retreat will end Sunday at 3pm. If you are flying in, Boston is about a 1.5-2 hour drive away.
