Michigan Runner Girl Running Weekend at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa

First introduced last year, a weekend of rest, relaxation and rejuvenation is what participants will experience when they join the second Michigan Runner Girl – Grand Traverse Resort and Spa Running Weekend, May 4th to 7th, 2017.

Held in beautiful Northern Michigan, at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa in Acme, near Traverse City, the all-inclusive weekend includes time to connect on the road and trail with fellow Michigan Runner Girls, as well as delicious (and healthy) food, locally-crafted drinks, inspiring speakers, Old Mission Peninsula wine tour, and ample downtime for various spa options, and quiet time to simply sit back and share in a low-key and comfortable setting.

Michigan Runner Girls Heather Durocher, founder of MichiganRunnerGirl.com, and Pam Carrigan, a certified personal trainer and runner, are hosts for the weekend. The event is capped at 36 participants, so be sure to sign up sooner rather than later. Grab a group of friends, come with your best running friend, or join solo — attendees are sure to make amazing new friends and come away with new running partners!

“We are so excited about our second annual MRG retreat weekend,” Durocher said. “Whether you’re new to running or you’re training for your third half marathon, you’ll love what this girls’ getaway provides?connection with like-minded women, inspiring speakers, wine tour on the gorgeous Old Mission Peninsula, a little pampering and, of course, running. We’re pleased to again be partnering with the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, which is the perfect spot for a long weekend devoted to an active lifestyle.”

Heather and Pam look forward to meeting all the participants and spending some quality, healthy time together! Three-night and 2-night package options are available.
