2nd Annual Michigan Runner Girl Winter Getaway


Moonlit snowshoeing, cross country skiing and hiking through the woods, yoga, delicious food and drink…all in a gorgeous Up North setting of rustic-chic lodging on the shores of Higgins Lake near Roscommon, Michigan. This is what you can expect (plus lots more) at the second annual Michigan Runner Girl Winter Getaway Feb. 8-10, 2019.

I hope you’ll join me and one of my best running friends Pam Carrigan, a personal trainer and MRG event coordinator, for a relaxing and rejuvenating two-night stay at the Ralph A. MacMullan Conference Center, a Michigan Department of Natural Resources property.

The weekend begins Friday late afternoon/early evening with a laid-back and welcoming gathering featuring fantastic food and drink. Arrive when you are able and join a great group of like-minded women. We’ll then enjoy a moonlight ski or snowshoe on this sprawling property (we’ve got skis and snowshoes for you, no need to worry about bringing these—unless you have your own and want to bring them along.)

Saturday activities include an optional morning run, breakfast at the lodge, special speaker (and a live podcast recording!), and an afternoon of skiing and eating at nearby XC Ski Headquarters. And, because this weekend is about rest and relaxation as much as it is about moving our bodies, there will be plenty of downtime.

A soul-satisfying morning of yoga followed by breakfast will finish up our time together Sunday morning.

Register below for this Friday-Sunday retreat featuring running, rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. If you sign up for double occupancy, please tell us your expected roommate’s name in the notes section on our order so that we can coordinate accordingly. Thank you!

Bring a friend or come solo—you’ll make so many new friends either way! We have double occupancy and single occupancy packages available. Whichever you choose, know that this is an all-inclusive getaway. This means everything—your lodging, all food and drink (including adult beverages), as well as all planned activities and transportation to these activities—are included in your price. Not included: transportation to the getaway weekend itself and any extra items you may want to buy throughout the weekend (gifts for family and friends, for example).

Oh, and there will be sweet swag from MRG partners, awesome giveaways (race entries! runner gear and clothing! Gift certificates!) and a commemorative gift for each Michigan Runner Girl (you’re gonna love it, we promise).
