The challenge — which lasts for a month — began on Wednesday, June 1, 2022 in celebration of Global Running Day, which has been consistently supported by Westin Hotels & Resorts for greater than five years as a means to further encourage guests to stay active while on the road.

Marriott Bonvoy members who elect to participate in the RunWESTIN Challenge must complete ten hours of physical activity within the month of June 2022 by running — in addition to other types of exercise, which includes walking, biking, wheelchair, and hiking. The challenge of 600 minutes or ten hours of activity for the month is informed by the recommendation of the American Heart Association of at least 150 minutes — or approximately 2.5 hours — of physical activity per week.

Upon completion of the RunWESTIN Challenge at the end of the month of June, 500 participants will then be selected at random to receive 40,000 Marriott Bonvoy points each.

Strava is the leading social platform for athletes — as well as the largest sports community in the world. You can download the Strava mobile application software program here.

Inspired by the Move Well pillar of Westin Hotels & Resorts, the brand empowers guests to transcend the rigors of travel through its Six Pillars of well-being:

  1. Sleep Well
  2. Eat Well
  3. Move Well
  4. Feel Well
  5. Work Well
  6. Play Well.

Marriott Bonvoy members can register for the RunWESTIN Challenge via the Strava mobile application software program at any point throughout June and complete their 10 hours of activity throughout the month in order to be eligible for the 40,000 points. The RunWESTIN Challenge closes on Thursday, June 30, 2022 at 11:59 in the evening in the respective time zone of each participant.

Also — as some readers of The Gate reported to having problems registering for this promotion as per the aforementioned instructions — you can now register directly for the RunWESTIN Challenge by clicking here on this link.

Final Boarding Call

A total of 20 million Marriott Bonvoy points will be given away through this challenge — and one of countless ways you can meet this challenge is to walk from the airport to the Las Vegas Strip.

I enjoy walking and bicycle riding. Perhaps I will participate in this challenge.

The worst that will happen is that I am healthier because of it.
