Welcome to UCAN Trail Running and Retreats!

We offer event packages that take women out of their comfort zone and expose them to the type of trail running disciplines that cultivate:

• Self-Confidence and Personal Growth
• Improved Health, Fitness, and Emotional Well-Being
• Ability to Plan AND Execute...
• A Forward-Thinking Mentality
• Courage, Resilience, and Perseverance
• A Greater Sense of Fun and Adventure
• A Deeper Appreciation of Nature, Self and Others

We’ll take you on adventures that will not only bring out the “best woman” in you, but also provide an opportunity to forge meaningful new relationships, create unforgettable experiences, and enjoy a holistically-refreshing break from everyday routine stressors.

As part of our retreats all participants will get a goodie bag.
​We would like to thank the businesses that support UCAN and who help make your experience more memorable.
