Westin caters to runners

In honor of National Running Day, Westin Hotels & Resorts launched Run with a View, a new program aiming to motivate guests to run outdoors.

“Run concierges” across select Westin properties in the United States and Canada selected at least five spots along 3- and 5-mile (5-km and 8-km) running routes that are ideal for capturing photos to share on social media. Guests are also encouraged to snap and post these with the hashtags #runwestin and #runwithaview.

“We are constantly evolving our wellness offerings to provide engaging fitness options that also encourage guests to explore their local surroundings,” said Bob Jacobs, vice president of brand management for Westin Hotels & Resorts, North America. “Run With a View allows guests to discover intriguing, and perhaps never-before-seen, photo-worthy moments during their run, inspiring them to share their wellness experiences with friends, family and followers.”

Westin is kicking off Run With a View with a 5K run at The Westin Pasadena Hotel in California.
