NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 28, 2013) – Guests of the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville can now experience the sights of Music City while getting a fun and entertaining workout with the new Fit as a Fiddle package featuring Nashville Running Tours.

With rates starting as low as $193, the package includes a one-night stay in a luxurious room at the newly renovated Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, an exclusive 5k guided running tour with Nashville Running Tours scheduled and paced to the guest’s preference, plus a $10 food and beverage credit to fuel up on fresh juices, fruits, veggies and other health-conscious items.

Recently named the “Hottest Travel Trend” by Runner’s World magazine, a running tour is a unique way for business and leisure travelers alike to get a workout while experiencing their destination. Guests of the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel can choose from two exclusive guided running tours that depart from the hotel offering insights into Nashville’s founding fathers, world-renowned music scene, and off-the-beaten path gems. Longer and custom tours are also available at an additional charge.

“We want to make it as easy as possible for our guests to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle, so we are excited to offer this exclusive fitness package in partnership with Nashville Running Tours,” said Mary B.
