I have written many times about the great value that can be had with the SPG Moments packages. I love how they really package some interesting things together with excellent deals on hotels. But, this has to be my all time vote for the best SPG redemption ever – for runners.
Best SPG Redemption Ever for Runners
If you are a marathon runner (or possibly any distance runner), you know the name Deena Kastor. She is the American record holder in the marathon (2:19:36) and the half marathon (1:07:34). This is in addition to many other records that she has held as well.
The SPG Moments auction is for a fantastic weekend for runners and is centered around being with Deena Kastor. Here is what is included:
- Three-night (3-night) stay for two (2) in a One-Bedroom Suite at The Westin Monache Resort, Mammoth, checking in 22 June and checking out NEED 24 June 2016
- Access for two (2) to an all-inclusive running retreat* with long-distance runner Deana Kastor, including the following events:FRIDAY
- Exclusive welcome dinner at the resortSATURDAY
- Light breakfast, followed by a group run around the lake
- Lakeside brunch with a cooking demonstration
- Evening group run, followed by a mountaintop party and gondola rideSUNDAY
- Light breakfast, followed by a group run
- Picnic brunch by the San Joaquin River
- Private dinner with Deena KastorMONDAY
- Private breakfast with Deena Kastor
- Private run with Deena Kastor
That is a whole lot of fun and certainly a weekend that the winner will not forget! Of course, you do not need to be a 5 minute per mile runner to get this. The auction makes it clear that all paces are welcome so do not let the fact that you will be running with a Olympic marathon medalist slow your bidding down!
The bidding is currently at 35,444 Starpoints but it will most definitely go higher – at least double this amount. The end of the auction is not until June 21 so there is a lot of time left on the bidding!
So, will you bid on this fantastic SPG redemption? I think it would be hard to find another SPG redemption that beats this one out for the runner!
