Walking on and train rides to glaciers
Wildlife and glacier viewing cruises
River rafting into national wildlife refuges
Gentle and restorative group yoga
Visits to wildlife rehabilitation centers
Iditarod training session rides
Culinary experiences in seafood
Lake kayaking, canoeing, or SUPing
Local food tastings and prep demos
Community festivals and their races
Plus opportunities for rest and down time at unique and comfortable lodges.
I had such an incredible time on the Run Fast Eat Slow trip with Run Alaska Trails. Elyse and all the women on the trip were incredible, and so fun to be around.
Everything was planned for us, which was such a welcome retreat from our everyday lives! We explored some of the best Alaska has to offer, and summited peaks with the most fun women! We fueled with high quality food, and I ate the best salmon of my life.
I would highly recommend the Run Fast Eat Slow retreat for anyone looking for an adventure and wanting to meet amazing people!

Run Alaska Trails knows Alaska, knows trails and provides an incredible trail experience! For our group, even though there was a wide range of runners and trail specific interest, Kim and her team provided an enjoyable experience for all of us.

This amazing team of trail runners will lead you on the adventure of a lifetime.
Run Alaska Trails makes you feel strong and safe running up mountains to beautiful views, well-nourished and hydrated post runs.
And like you're living like a local with lodging and the non-running activities, such as sipping kombucha or feeding reindeer. I can't recommend this team enough!

This trip exceeded any expectations I had of Alaska and the running was absolutely catered to abilities and individual comfort levels in the group!! The guides were great, so knowledgeable about the trails and nature (plants, animal tracks).
We were able to enjoy several side excursions that were amazing (flight, boating, Glacier hike)! I loved eating at the local restaurants as well. Kim is super flexible and accommodating and really does a great job of providing an experience of a lifetime!!
