ResortQuest to Participate as Lodging Sponsor for the Run Rabbit Run Ultra 50 Marathon and OktoberWest

Vacation Rentals Provider Offers up to 40 Percent Off Accommodations for Participants of the Weekend's Main Events in Steamboat Springs, Colo.

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwire - Aug 17, 2011) - ResortQuest® by Wyndham Vacation Rentals will welcome guests to Steamboat Springs, Colo. this September as the Official Lodging Sponsor of two exciting events taking place the same weekend: Run Rabbit Run Steamboat 50 Ultra Marathon and OktoberWest.

The Run Rabbit Run Steamboat 50 Ultra Marathon is billed as a race for "people who like to run a long, long way." The 50-mile course takes runners through the Routt National Forest along challenging mountain trails with steep inclines and descents, unpredictable weather conditions and nearly 9,000 feet of climbing. The event begins at 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 17, 2011, at the base of the Steamboat Springs ski area, located at 2305 Mt. Werner Cir.

As the Official Lodging Sponsor, ResortQuest is offering 40 percent off a stay of three or more nights at The Torian Plum or Snowflower Condominiums at the base of the Steamboat Ski Resort, near the marathon's start and finish lines. Guests can also save 35 percent off a stay of just two nights. These special rates are valid on stays August 28 through November 23 but must be booked by Wednesday, August 31.

"We are proud to sponsor the Steamboat 50 Ultra Marathon for 2011 and to welcome the dedicated athletes taking part in this competition," said Katy Martin, Colorado regional marketing director, ResortQuest by Wyndham Vacation Rentals. "ResortQuest's fully furnished vacation rentals create a conveniently located home-like atmosphere for the racers, as well as a smart home base for guests visiting the Beer Garden and other OktoberWest festivities at the base of the Steamboat Ski Area."

The Run Rabbit Run Ultra Marathon takes place the same weekend as the 3rd Annual Steamboat Springs OktoberWest. Presented by the Steamboat Mountain Village Partnership, OktoberWest is a Steamboat Springs-style Oktoberfest with music, food, family-friendly activities, a chef competition and much more. Putting a twist on the traditional German-style Oktoberfest, OktoberWest features Rocky Mountain beer, local food specialties and festivities unique to the region.

As a Lodging Partner for OktoberWest, ResortQuest is offering travelers the same discounts available under the Ultra Marathon promotion and an invite to a complimentary private beer tasting at either The Torian Plum or Trappeur's Crossing Resort on Friday, September 16, 2011, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Admission to the event is free. Beer is sold via Tasting Tokens, and an official OktoberWest Beer Stein is required. Discounted OktoberWest Beer Garden tickets are available from ResortQuest with the purchase of lodging. The discounted tickets are $25 when purchased at time of booking, a savings of $5 off pricing at the door.

The Torian Plum is Steamboat's premier ski-in/ski-out lodging, located alongside the Christie Peak chairlift and just 100 yards from the Gondola. Snow Flower Condominiums offer an unbeatable combination of location and value, situated just 75 steps from the Steamboat Ski Resort Gondola and the shops and restaurants of Gondola Square.

To take advantage of ResortQuest's Run Rabbit Run lodging discount, guests should call 866-599-8954 and mention the Steamboat Ultra Marathon, or book online to receive the discounted rate automatically. To purchase discounted OktoberWest tickets, guests should make lodging reservations by phone and request discounted tickets at the time of booking. Availability is limited for both offers, and reservations must be booked by August 31. More details, including terms and conditions, are available online.
