Rancho La Puerta Unveils Dynamic Running Program

TECATE, Baja California, Mexico (March 14, 2017) – Rancho La Puerta, world-renowned fitness resort and spa in Tecate, Mexico just south of San Diego, announced its debut of its new Running Retreat Program featuring numerous trails, a running clinic, and a variety of fitness classes and recovery treatments designed to keep runners in peak performance year round. Casual and competitive runners alike can cross-train, skill-build, stretch and recover throughout a journey that empowers one’s true self.

The program entices trail-runners, parkour enthusiasts, half-marathoners and more to explore Rancho La Puerta’s vast grounds and take to the foothills of Mount Kuchumaa to train across numerous advanced trails at different altitudes and lengths. After a challenging three to nine-mile run at leisure or led by running concierge Martin Ruiz, guests can recharge with organic farm-fresh cuisine, flexibility and strength classes, and restorative spa treatments geared specifically toward runners.

“Whether you’re a cross country or a trail-runner, we think The Ranch is the ideal place for a ‘Run-cation’,” says the resort’s Running Concierge Martin Ruiz. “You’ll train on scenic trails, and then recover with daily stretch classes and healing spa services.”

Advanced runners can find a challenging, nine-mile run on the Cottontail Trail amidst the valleys and peaks of Mount Kuchumaa, while beginners can learn the basics of running beside a personal guide – each providing a unique experience among the majestic scenery. Run-cation guests can supplement their running routines with tailored classes including strength training, muscle release with foam rollers, circuit training, invigorating yoga, and core workouts focused on increasing stamina. Additionally, guests can restore muscles with spa treatments designed for trail-running athletes including the Sports Recovery Massage, Ranch Classic Massage, Runner’s Reflexology, and more.
