Enter To Win A Spot In Kara Goucher’s 2017 Podium Retreat

Megan Murray


We believe in the power of the running retreat. At a minimum, retreats are a weekend away with run friends new and old. But for many of us, they become a sort of sanctuary - a protected space for reflection, goal setting, skill building, and community. It’s everything we love about running, in one high-potency weekend.

That’s why this year, we’re giving one lucky runner an all-expenses paid spot in Kara Goucher’s sold-out 2017 retreat. Open for runners of all ages and ability levels - Kara’s retreat is a space made for focus, connection, and self-improvement. And this year’s theme is strength and empowerment. We can certainly get behind that.

One lucky winner will receive:

  • Paid entry to Kara’s 2017 Podium Retreat, October 19th - 22nd in Boulder Colorado
  • Door to door transportation to and from Boulder
  • Lodging at the charming Hotel Boulderado
  • A special send-off surprise from Oiselle HQ (#flystyle included!)

So sit down and sign up! This year’s retreat is going to be one for the ages. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for you.


Get in Here, We Love You

Empowerment what I have striven to give to my son thru his brain injury, learning disability, and being raised in a single parent home. No excuses only challenges we meet head on and rise above. He and I have both lived this through our running. f6F3L

I have been teaching first grade for 28 years. I've been running since college but have never been coached. This would be a great opportunity for me to improve my strength and form so that I can continue to run into my retirement!!:)

What an incredible opportunity. As a high school cross country coach and late to find running athlete, I have so many questions I would love to ask Kara!
