Organiser's Description

Trail Running Retreat | Transylvania, Romania
14-17 May 2021

Transylvania lies deep in the heart of myth and legend as the home of Count Dracula, but there is so much more that this region of Romania has to offer. Bran lies 150km North-West of Romania's capital, Bucharest, and is surrounded by spectacular mountain and forest trails.

Winding paths leading through lush expansive valley views, while tracks and signs remind you that you share this wilderness with wolves, bears and an abundance of other wildlife. Make the Bucegi mountain range your playground for a few days - this is a truly awesome place to run.

Additional activities unless otherwise stated

day 01

Arrive and settle in to the accommodation. Put your feet up, meet the team over an evening meal.

day 02

Breakfast will be available early giving us time for food to settle a little before heading out. Warm up and we head to the beginning of the trail-head which is in easy reach of the accommodation. The longest run you'll undertake will see us climb high into the local peaks and plateaus before descending back through magical woodlands and single track trails. Back at base we clean ourselves off before a simple lunch to refuel. The afternoon is at you own leisure, relaxing or exploring Bran. The team and guests reconvene over dinner.

day 03

After breakfast we have a short transfer to the trail-head. A quick warm up we head out on a longer run. Entering the second national park in two days, Piatra Craiului. This limestone mountain range forms a north-south spine. As we reach the highest point we navigate the ridge-line before descending through wonderful woodland via a series of trails and tracks. After lunch an optional stretch & strength class will be available (45mins), or just unwind ahead of the evening meal.

day 04

A quick stretch and easy morning run (1hr) will set you up for your journey - or treat yourself to a extra hour or two in bed. The team and guests share breakfast before heading off.

In the heart of Bran this accommodation allows easy access to trail heads and the town where the castle is situated. A lovely social space for sharing meals and discussions makes this a wonderful place to spend a weekend of rest and relaxation.
