Go the Distance

Westin Hotels & Resorts teams up with Strava to motivate fitness enthusiasts of all levels to go the extra mile in celebration of Global Running Day.

A champion of Global Running Day, Westin Hotels & Resorts has announced it is joining forces with Strava, the leading social platform for athletes and the largest sports community in the world, to reward fitness enthusiasts of all types for getting their heart rates up from 1 June. Through this new collaboration, 500 Marriott Bonvoy members will have the chance to earn 40,000 Marriott Bonvoy points each by completing the month-long global RunWESTIN Challenge using the Strava app.

As the preeminent well-being brand in hospitality, Westin has consistently supported Global Running Day for more than five years as a means to further encourage guests to stay active while on the road. Westin empowers guests to transcend the rigours of travel through its Six Pillars of well-being: Sleep Well, Eat Well, Move Well, Feel Well, Work Well, and Play Well. Inspired by the brand’s Move Well pillar, this new collaboration with Strava continues to build on the industry-leading programming by Westin.

Marriott Bonvoy members participating in the challenge must complete 10 hours of physical activity within the month of June by running and other types of exercise, including walking, biking, wheelchairing, and hiking. The challenge of 600 minutes, or 10 hours, of activity for the month is based on the American Heart Association’s recommendation of at least 150 minutes – roughly 2.5 hours – of physical activity per week. Upon completion of the challenge at the end of the month, 500 participating members will then be selected at random to receive 40,000 Marriott Bonvoy points each.

Making sure the challenge is merrier, The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali will also hold one of its most anticipated annual events. On 25 June, Celebrate Wellness will offer a fun run and cardio dance from two inspiring Indonesian wellness celebrities. The event will start with a fun run led by Melanie Putria who just accomplished her Boston Marathon recently marking the completion of 6 medals in WWM (World Marathon Majors). After running, participants will be invited to enjoy healthy morning refreshments at the beachfront Temple Garden and enjoy an inspiring wellness talk by the two celebrities, followed by a special fashion show from ReeActive wear to enhance the moment. The final event will be a fun full-body cardio dance session with Riana Bismarak who is a ZIN, Pound Pro & Strong Nation practitioner.
