THIS/MILE GRAND TETON 
RETREAT FAQ'S

Most Frequently Asked Questions // 

1. 

Can I attend if I am not an experienced trail runner?

Absolutely. Our retreat is designed for a variety. of fitness levels + ages. We recommend having the baseline ability to run 3 miles at a low key pace.

2. 

Is running the Grand Teton Half Marathon mandatory?

No it is most certainly not mandatory. Registration is automatically included for all retreat attendees, but you ultimately can choose up until that morning if you would like to participate. ALSO, please keep in mind, we had participants who walked and jog/walked last year's Yellowstone Half Marathon as well. The time cap of the race includes the option to walk the race from start to finish if you so decide. The course is one of the most picturesque half marathon courses in the country with the entire Grand Teton Mountain Range as the backdrop  - it is also mostly flat and take place on pavement - making it very attainable to walk or combination jog/walk. Ultimately, the race is voluntary, we had a number of guests last year who chose to allocate that morning for restorative spa services and loved it. We encourage you to choose what feels most aligned for you.

3. 

What is the altitude like + how should I prepare for it?

Our mountain home property this year is located at one of the lower elevations of the entire Jackson valley area at 5,900 ft. Our activities will take place at elevations mainly in the 6,000's  feet range with parts of hiking leading into the 7,000 ft elevation range. Our itinerary is designed to allow for acclimation from the moment you arrive -  we will also be sending out tips to our attendees in the weeks leading up to the retreat.

4. 

How do I get to Jackson, Wyoming?

If you are flying from NJ, there are a number of flights out of Newark into the Jackson Hole Airport on Wednesday May 29th. We recommend arriving by 2pm to be included in the complimentary airport pickup. Jackson Hole does not offer Uber service - your transportation throughout the retreat is included with our retreat vehicles when we travel as a group.

For the return  trip back to Newark, there is a direct flight out of Jackson Hole via United on Sunday June 2nd that we recommend as the most seamless return option - with transportation to the airport on that day included.

Meals are included from breakfast through dinner and trail snacks for your entire retreat - excluding one (optional) group dinner on the final night. Dietary preferences, allergies, etc and adjustments will absolutely be accommodated.

There will be available free time each day at different points during the day for you to choose to utilize however you would like. Please keep in mind this is an adventure retreat - being active does play a primary role in the itinerary each day, but with that in mind, the days will be designed to include adequate downtime and restorative moments.

We recommend trail running shoes for traction and support purposes, which can also be used for hiking.
