Costa Rica

TRAIL RUNNING RETREAT  11th - 17th February 2018

 
 

Trail Running, tree climbing, waterfall rappelling, yoga and more with Frosty and Trail Run Adventures in Costa Rica. 

Anna Frost and Trail Run Adventures have teamed up for a 7- day trail running, yoga and adventure retreat in Costa Rica! 

WHERE? We spend 5 days at our private Eco-lodge nestled between 2 national parks in the mountains of Costa Rica, Chirripo National Park and La Amistad International Park, which is shared with Panama. You will be sleeping in a treehouse of three walls with the fourth wall open to the jungle with more stars than you can even count above. Every day you will nourish your body with home cooked, local and healthy food, drink pure natural spring water, enjoy hot showers by candle light and flush toilets with a view. And then two days to enjoy the beautiful, relaxed beach town of Dominical in a beach front hotel, surfing, visiting Uvita national park, slack lining, stand up paddling & beach time!

WHAT? Trail running to waterfalls & mountain tops, climbing trees, rappelling waterfalls & rocks, rock climbing, sunrise flow yoga & restorative candle light yoga mediation, natural spa activities, hammock relaxing time, connection with yourself, others and nature and plenty of time for relaxation. 

WHO? For trail runners (men and women) with a previous running and fitness base who are looking to take their passion for running to another country and run trails they never have before. For those who want to spend a week in paradise with Anna Frost and Trail Run Adventures. For trail runners who are looking to get away from the craziness of everyday life, relax deeply, recharge fully and challenge yourself to try new things in one of the most beautiful places we have ever been.
