Ready, set, run what some call “The South’s Toughest Bridge Run”. Savannah Sports Council is the 2018 award winner for Event Marketing Campaign for the Enmarket Bridge Run. The 5k or 10k race takes runners across Savannah’s Talmadge Bridge.
“This event means the world to me,” says Rob Wells, Director of the Savannah Sports Council. “I keep telling people that this award means so much more than most because it is selected by our peers and presented among them.”
While the Savannah Sports Council won this campaign award for the Enmarket Bridge Run, which saw a 17% increase, they saw tremendous success at other events last year. The Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon celebrated its fifth year with a 13% participant increase and the Enmarket Savannah Hockey Classic celebrated its 20th anniversary.
“With all of that, the thing I am most proud of is the creation of our Scholar-Athlete award which we gave out at the 2018 Georgia Power Sports Awards,” Wells says. “Last year we gave two $1,000 scholarships, and in 2019, we will be giving out $6,000 in scholarships to six deserving student-athletes from Savannah.”
For any other organizations looking for success at events, Wells suggests setting goals, determining your strengths, and don’t be afraid to try new things.
