A four-day Trail Running Holiday, Running Retreat.

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.

Arrive and settle in. Meet the team over an evening meal.
Wake early to breakfast. Warm up and stretch and head out on the longest run you'll undertake (approx. 4hrs). Back at base we refuel with lunch and spend the afternoon relaxing or exploring. The team and guests reconvene over dinner.
After breakfast and a warm up we head out on an easier run (approx 3hrs). After lunch an optional yoga class will be available (1 hour), or just unwind ahead of the evening meal.
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.
