RUN YOUR BODY - FEED YOUR SOUL
Key Retreats Costa Brava, an adventure of a lifetime.
Your retreat begins by heading directly north from Barcelona to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea in Aigua Blava. Your villa sits right on the Cami de Ronda (the trail that we will run in sections throughout the retreat) , where you'll enjoy views of the sea over the negative edge pool. Your private path will take you right to the beach.
 
As the sun rises, your day will begin with a short runners yoga with Jodi.  A late breakfast will be served and expect a running start time of around 9 or 10am. Your own private chef will provide regional dishes of paella, tapas and other local healthy meals throughout the week.

Your guided daily runs will cover various sections of the Cami de Ronda, a Coastal trail that runs through castles and small villages. The running is low key and because of the terrain it's a lot of hiking.

You'll enjoy a full day in Girona, one of the best towns in the area starting with a local guided run. Hiking is also an option.  We will run between 4miles and 6 miles everyday with lots of stops for pictures and sightseeing and water. Expect 2-4 hours on your feet and on the longer days we'll stop for snacks (gelato is a favorite) and finish with lunch.



 
Each day will bring a different adventure, a new village, relaxation and exploration.  
 Grab a friend or come on your own and meet new ones, this week is going to combine all the things that bring us together, running, travel, yoga, great food, laughs and amazing people. 
WHAT TO EXPECT 
GUIDED TRAIL RUNS 
RESTORATIVE/RECOVERY YOGA

Our own Yoga instructor, Jodi Petlin will guide us all week in taking care of our bodies, recovering and restoring to be ready to go again the next day.

Meet The Team

Courtney Babcock

Founder:
 If there is one thing Courtney loves as much as running it's travel and bringing women together. She will lead most of the runs during the retreat. Key Retreats is a way to check in with yourself, explore new places and connect with women on a shared adventure. We are brought together by running but the word retreat is an important part of your week. Relax, renew, refresh...Key Retreats.

Quick Bio: 
Courtney is a former pro, Olympian, Masters World Champ. But don't be intimidated. She loves to bring all levels of runners together and meet you where you are. The journey of running, what we learn about ourselves, who we meet and what we get to see is the focus of what Courtney brings to the retreats. Courtney is a mom of 2 boys, a wife and sometimes interior designer! She lives in Missoula Montana.
