In an exclusive partnership with the running app RunGo Hilton Rotterdam has created three tailor-made routes in the city. Perfect for guests and locals to explore the city because of the turn-by-turn voice navigation.
The clear voice navigation allows the user to train and at the same time enjoy the sights in the area without having to constantly check the route on the phone. Each route is centred around the hotels. Next to Rotterdam, there are also routes for Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam, Hilton Amsterdam, Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Hampton by Hilton Amsterdam/Arena, DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Central station and DoubleTree by Hilton Royal Parc Soestduinen.
Once connected to the RunGo app runners can choose from different routes: accessible routes of a few kilometres, longer sightseeing tours or sporty challenging courses. The app is also interesting for marathon runners. They can run preparation routes for the NN Marathon Rotterdam on April, 9 & 10 2022. The pre-race run route is located on the last five kilometres of the course and the app provides important insights into the performance.
Hilton Rotterdam created one route that leads along the Rotte-river. Another track takes runners through some neighbourhoods, including Provenierswijk, Blijdorp, and the Chinatown-district. The third route brings you through the busy shopping street of Lijnbaan.
Tailor-made guided running
Erwin Verhoog, vice president of operations, Continental Europe Hilton: “We are always looking for new ways to enhance our guests’ stay. Now that outdoor activities are more popular than than ever, we are delighted to be able to introduce tailor-made guided running routes to our guests.”
Noah Bloom, Head of Partnerships at RunGo is also excited about the partnership. “We think it is great to work with an international brand like Hilton. It is great that hotel guests can explore their surroundings and stay fit at the same time. Walking, jogging and running in the open air is the perfect way to get to know a city. In developing the routes, we have ensured that there are options for all abilities and interests. We offer routes from three to nine kilometres or more and themed runs that focus on sightseeing, mindfulness, GPS art and fitness. As a result of the corona measures and restrictions that closed down gyms and other indoor sports facilities, running has grown in popularity around the world. With domestic and international travel now permitted, travellers can also enjoy their passion for running abroad.”
