"With such a strong commitment to the running community, Westin is delighted to shake it up on National Running Day and support an event that is quickly growing into a global celebration." Westin Sprints Forward, Keeping Travelers Fit on the Road Building on last year's campaign, which brought the signature runWESTIN™ running maps to life through Instagram-worthy photography taken along the routes, this year Westin offers a new point-of-view on Happy Hour and encourages all runners to post #RunWithaView from their sweat-working runs. This program builds on Westin's global Well-Being Movement, an initiative dedicated to inspiring guests and associates to discover new approaches to wellness through innovative partnerships and programs across the brand's six pillars of well-being, including Move Well. Today the brand boasts nearly 200 Run Concierges globally, who host group runs for guests and encourage runners of all levels to grab a runWESTIN™ map with scenic routes through cities, along beachfronts and amid rural landscapes. For fitness traditionalists, WestinWORKOUT® fitness studios feature state-of-the-art exercise equipment from world-class brands in open, airy and well-designed spaces.
