Our friends at Aire Libre Running wrote about their most recent adventures and how we got to be a part of it.
We Got By With a Little Help from Roll Recovery.
Patagonia & Baja Sur with Aire Libre Running.
During the end of December 2019 and again in February 2020 we had the fortune to lead two life-changing running experiences, one in the Patagonia Lake District in Chile and another in Baja California Sur in Mexico respectively. These two running experiences were part of what we passionately do in Aire Libre Running.
We design and operate thoroughly curated travel experiences for runners of all levels that aim to bring human beings into close contact with a more profound essence of living. We believe this is achieved through the renovation of our relationship to ourselves, to nature, and to the people and cultures around us. Our retreats, getaways and sessions are designed to break you free from the noise of daily life, and to allow for your body and mind to reset while gaining new perspectives through deep, transformative travel.
For the Patagonia and Baja Sur experiences we had the honor to partner up with Roll Recovery. It was a natural collaboration since their rehabilitation tools fit perfectly into all our activities. Their products added a great deal of value to all participants since we used them repeatedly to recover after all our running sessions, and to prepare ourselves for the running that still lay ahead. The R8 and R3’s got passed around like a pack of Oreo cookies from participant to participant, each one eagerly waiting their turn.
The Lake District, Patagonia Retreat took place from December 26th, 2019 to January 2nd, 2020. We were an incredibly diverse group of 18 runners from all corners of the world. Our trail- running paths took us from coastal towns to snow-drizzled volcanoes, Pacific fjords, lush rainforests and deep blue lakes hidden in the Andes mountains. During this retreat we also had the opportunity to experience Chilean culture, cuisine and nature at its finest.
