Westin Hotels & Resorts has renewed and
expanded its support of
top-tier marathons across the Asia Pacific region.
For the first time, Westin will be
the exclusive hotel partner of Australia’s largest marathon,
Melbourne Marathon Festival on 13 October 2019. The Westin
Melbourne will provide an intensive 10-week training program
leading up to the race, as well as special packages and privileges
for guests staying at the hotel during the marathon.
Since the launch of Westin’s marathon
partnerships last year, Westin Hotels & Resorts continues to be
the official sponsor of China’s most popular marathon, the
Shanghai International Marathon which will tale place this year on
17 November 2019. The Westin
Shanghai will offer early Eat Well breakfast service ahead of the
race to ensure that guests participating in the marathon are
energized for their run. Meanwhile, #runWestin team members in
Shanghai will have Eat Well breakfast along with limousine pickup
from their home and dropped off at the hotel, which is within
walking distance to the start line.
For the second year in a row, Westin is the
official partner of Tokyo Marathon (1 March 2020) - one of the most
coveted international marathons in Asia-Pacific, and the only race
in Asia to be included in Abbott World Marathon Majors, a
shortlist of the top six marathons worldwide. Special experiences
and workshops will be held at the Westin Booth for Marriott Bonvoy
members and the public at the Tokyo Marathon Expo ahead of the
race, as well as special surprises at the finish line for all who
participated in the coveted marathon.
“We recognize that running is becoming a major
sport across Asia-Pacific with many of our guests traveling to
participate in top marathons,” said Mike Fulkerson, Vice
President, Brand & Marketing Asia-Pacific, Marriott International.
“The Westin brand has always provided comprehensive Run Westin
programs at all of our 225 hotels in 40 countries and territories
worldwide. In Asia-Pacific, we’re now taking it up a notch with
elevated experiences both pre and post-races as part of our
continued partnerships with top-tier marathons.”
Both hotel guests and local communities, have
access to training sessions at participating Westin hotels across
Asia- Pacific, including running clinics guided by the Run
