Blue Mountains Rejoov Retreat 21-23rd July 2017 - fully booked


Our next Rejoov running retreat is happening from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd July at the award winning Fairmont Resort in the Blue Mountains. 

 The Fairmont Resort 

The Fairmont Resort 

This weekend is set up for a fantastic combination of relaxation, cuisine and of course some great running, strength and cross training. This hotel is 4.5 stars. It boasts an indoor heated lap pool, gym, kids play centre (Jaden tested and approved) plus sensational views from the restaurant and lounge bar as we warm ourselves by the fire and toast with a glass of hot gluwein or your favourite drop.

There will be morning runs but not too early because let’s face it, it will be damn cold first thing but the tracks and trails will more than make up for this. Leura village and Katoomba surrounds offer remarkable spots to explore as you probably know OR bring your favourite book or TV series and just chill out.

ACCOMMODATION: Superior King rooms (we have been upgraded already at no charge) with either a King Bed or 2 queens (for those coming who will need to share). Cots and rollaway beds have also been thrown in for free for kids under 5. (If we plan it right, we could book more of the 2 x queen rooms and the bigger kids can sleep in those).

KIDS: Ok so what to do here. As advised, our retreat is kid friendly. For those families where both parents run and the kids are too young to leave, we can discuss options for babysitters etc as we progress.

FOOD: There is an optional buffet both nights. Please see below for the expected costs for the weekend including additions such as this.

CHECK-IN / CHECK-OUT: Check-in anytime from 3pm Friday 21st July & retreat finishes Sunday afternoon after lunch.
