The Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort's Funky Fun Run
Weekly Funky Fun Run
The weekly Funky Fun Run began in April of 2015, and supports two of Westin’s pillars of wellness (move well and play well) and activates our RunWestin initiative.
Our location on A1A in Ft. Lauderdale is perfect for running, as the beach in front of our resort continues for three miles. If you run closest to the ocean, you don’t have to cross any streets or stop for any lights!
How the Run Got Started
About a mile from the hotel is Running Wild, a locally owned, upscale specialty running store which features top brands and all of the necessary accessories. If you visit you will probably meet the owner, Don Wennerstrom, who embodies all of the passion of someone who loves people and running.
Between our brand initiatives and Don’s incredible passion, we decided to partner on a weekly fun run. Together, we outlined a route and concept where a 3.5-mile oceanfront run on Thursday is followed by a social setting at The Westin, including locally brewed beer, Superfoods infused elixir and sliced fresh fruit.
Run With Us!
The Funky Fun Run takes place every Thursday. Guests can either meet in the Westin lobby at 6pm or at Running Wild on Sunrise Boulevard. The run begins from Running Wild at 6:30pm followed by a reception at the resort. Complimentary beer and Superfoods snacks are provided.
Currently, we are averaging 100 runners per week, comprised of Westin Resort guests, associates, and local attendees. We feel great about offering the run and watching people engage with each other and come back each week. We hope you will join us for our next run!
