Deena Kastor is one of the greatest runners of all time. Her Olympic Bronze medal, American and World Records, major marathon wins and numerous accomplishments truly inspire us, but so does her zest and enthusiasm to live a positive and full life. This fall, Deena welcomes runners of all levels to Escape to Mammoth for her inaugural running retreat that promises to roll out the red carpet for a memorable weekend of running, dining and adventure!
After a full day experiencing how the best runners in the world live and train, runners will unwind with gourmet beer tastings, carefully hand selected meals by Kastor and fireside chats. The weekend will also include an exclusive cooking demo with Kastor who is well known for her culinary prowess. The final day of the escape will include a leisure run to the top of Mammoth Mountain followed by a champagne brunch and scenic gondola ride.
Limited registration is still available through Deena’s personal website, www.deenakastor.com/#escape. Complimentary transportation will be provided by the Westin Monache to guests traveling via the Mammoth Lakes/Yosemite airport. For local guests, the scenic Highway 395 also makes Mammoth Lakes a premier and unforgettable road trip opportunity. Additional information can be found here.
