BALTIMORE – Big Run Media, a full-service branding, marketing, social media, and creative design agency announced today that it will continue to manage the digital marketing efforts for the 2020 and 2021 The Woodlands Marathon. Held on back to back weekends, The Woodlands Marathon includes a marathon, half marathon, marathon relay, 5k, and 2k fun run/walk. Big Run Media will be responsible for managing the race’s digital marketing throughout the year, including the development and creation of social media campaigns, creative design, and advertisements.
“The Woodlands Marathon is a hidden gem that we want to make sure runners discover,” said Thomas Neuberger, founder and managing partner of Big Run Media. “This event has a fantastic setting and the management team puts on a race packed with value for the athletes.”
Big Run Media worked closely with Race Director Willie Fowlkes to create a consistent, branded experience for runners. “The importance of branding your events has never been greater,” said Neuberger. “Athletes want an experience, not just a timed race.”
Through organic and paid marketing initiatives, Big Run Media was able to attract and capture nearly 2,000 participants for the March 2019 race, resulting in an 8% increase in registration for the marathon and a 9% increase in the half marathon YOY.
The Woodlands Marathon Ambassadors, also recruited and managed by Big Run Media, collectively brought in over 550 registrations.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Big Run Media. We believe if you want to stay relevant in the active lifestyle event industry, partnering with Big Run Media is a must for any organizer,” said Fowlkes. “Their expertise in our opinion is second to none.”
