Run & Retreat

Run & Retreat powered by Decathlon

Nearly everyone runs, but you’re still not sure if it’s the right activity for you? Do you run recreationally and want to learn more about proper training, nutrition and equipment? Are you ready to take your running to the next level and push your limits?

Run & Retreat powered by Decathlon is a running course taught by professional trainers and running coaches who will design a programme to suit your needs. Go for daily jogs along the coast, wake up with yoga or Pilates with a sea view and meditate to the sound of the waves, learn about proper breathing, nutrition and clothing, and enjoy relaxing massages and wellness.

What have participants and trainers said about the first edition of the Run & Retreat programme, powered by Decathlon:

“Run & Retreat powered by Decathlon was one of the best active holiday ideas I’ve had the opportunity to try in the last few years. Running twice a day under the watchful eye of a trainer, trying Pilates for the first time and yoga on the beach were only a few of the unforgettable experiences included. Highly recommended!”

Roni Kordiš, Slovenian blogger (had.si), Run & Retreat participant


“Run & Retreat powered by Decathlon combines a healthy, modern approach to life with an excellent travel destination. As a programme partner, it was my desire to use my motivational lectures to show how physical activity – and the emphasis here was on running – can bring balance to your everyday life.”

Dejan Patrčević, Croatian Ironman ambassador and head trainer at Adriatic Coaching – lecturer at Run & Retreat


“Running has experienced a true renaissance in the recreation world in the past few years. I’m especially happy that Istraturist has recognised this new trend, and I’m glad to have had the chance to run athletics training sessions during the Run & Retreat programme, the first edition of which has already proved that active holidays are becoming a more and more popular market niche.”

Marko Milanović, athletics trainer – running programme instructor at Run & Retreat
