All meals will be provided for the weekend! We will be using all local produce and whole foods to provide the most wholesome nutrition possible. For those interested in plant based eating, we will be doing a unique focus on those options throughout the weekend. Menus will be provided for you to make your selections priors to mealtime! All meals will be prepared in a demonstration setting for you to learn the preparation and cooking techniques if interested. 


For the 2020 RYHO retreat, we'll be nestled right between the Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests in North Carolina. We're right down the road from Brevard, NC at a home on Lake Toxaway. We've positioned ourselves in the perfect location close to mountains, trails, and cute mountain towns. We're also right down the road from Oskar Blues Brewery where we'll take part in an Oktoberfest 5k or half marathon. 

Exclusively this year: our retreat location boasts private lake access, use of kayaks and an outdoor hot tub!

When booking your spot, your registration will determine which bedroom you'll be in. Please see the registration page for details!  



5k & Half Marathon

The 2020 Run Your Heart Out retreat is including an official 5k & half marathon race with the weekend! We want to give you something to look forward to and to train for through the summer and fall. 

When registering for the weekend, you can specific which distance you'd like to run and your race registration will be covered! 

Although we'll be doing our fair share of trails, this one will be a mostly paved course from the brewery.
