Born to Run

“Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.”

So writes Japanese writer and avid marathoner Haruki Murakami, but pounding the pavement doesn’t have to be as philosophical as all that.

Head to the Fitness Center, choose your distance and challenge the clock—and yourself—on a treadmill of your choice as you race for Club bragging rights and a one-hour treatment at The Spa.

Race categories:

  • Fastest 80 kilometers: one-run-a-day limit (male/female)
  • Fastest 160 kilometers: one-run-a-day limit (male/female)
  • Longest distance: unlimited daily runs (male/female)

Participants must check in with the Fitness Center staff before each run.

“The hurt part is an unavoidable reality,” Murakami says, “but whether or not you can stand any more is up to the runner himself.”
