Calling all fitness buffs! Tie those laces tight, grab that lucky headband and get ready to take a run through downtown Portland with the Heathman Hotel’s GM. Every Tuesday, guests and members of the Portland community are invited to join General Manager (and marathon runner!), Chris Erickson, as he embarks on his morning run through Portland. The Run with the GM Program and Package is the ideal way for Portland-based runners and Heathman Hotel guests to stick to their fitness routines while on the road and see the city in a completely different light.
“I enjoy starting each morning with a run through the beautiful city of Portland before the rest of the community wakes up,” says Chris Erickson general manager for The Heathman Hotel. “I’m thrilled to welcome our guests and fellow runners in the area who share my passion. This new program allows Portland-based runners to experience a few of my favorite city routes and out-of-towners to stay fit on-the-road and take-in the beautiful sights this city has to offer.”
For travelers looking to mix fitness with pleasure during their visit to Portland, the Run with the GM Package offers guests the required essentials to help prepare and recover from a morning run. Additionally for every package purchased, the Heathman will donate $20 to One Fund Boston to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.
