UKRunChat Appoints Breathe Unity

UKRunChat Events Shrewsbury Half

UKRunChat logoUKRunChat and UKRunChat Events have appointed Sports PR company Breathe Unity to support and promote their growing community of runners and running events.

Breathe Unity will focus on the continued growth and development of the UK’s biggest online running community, whilst also raising awareness of UKRunChat Events, the events arm of UKRunChat.

UKRunChat currently welcomes thousands of members who use the website and social channels to chat, give advice, support one another and celebrate with each other. Forming part of this is the UKRunChat Running Club, affiliated with England Athletics, which enables members to meet at events up and down the country, see where fellow UKRunChat members are running via a race calendar and sign up to events online.

In addition to supporting the significant online community, Breathe Unity will manage all PR and media enquiries for UKRunChat Events, which for 2017 includes the Oswestry Half Marathon and the Shrewsbury Half Marathon. A leader in race representation, Breathe Unity will be looking to maximise awareness of each event whilst increasing the pace of sell out.

Director of UKRunChat Joe Williams commented, “We are delighted to go into partnership with Breathe Unity. With their extensive experience in the field of running and their commitment to encouraging a healthy lifestyle, we are perfectly aligned in every aspect and they have an excellent understanding of the needs of the running community. We are looking forward to seeing UKRunChat thrive and grow further with Breathe Unity’s guidance and to promoting our increasing number of UKRunChat Events.”

Rebecca Richardson, MD of Breathe Unity, said, “We are thrilled that Breathe Unity has been chosen to manage the PR and further development of UKRunChat and UKRunChat Events. The community is the biggest running community in the UK and we are excited at the opportunity to help it grow more and reach its full potential. We look forward to working closely with the organisers to deliver all their PR and media requirements, and to supporting their exciting new events for 2017 and beyond.”

Breathe Unity will also support UKRunChat in their interaction with brands by helping to develop strategic, long-term partnerships. Based in Manchester, the Sports PR company develops highly effective, bespoke campaigns for sports businesses, communities, brands and events, with a focus on Sports, Health, Fitness, Tourism and Wellbeing. They are passionate about connecting sports communities and brands, inspiring an active lifestyle and supporting mass participation events such as those offered by UKRunChat Events.

The Oswestry Half takes place on 30th April and the Shrewsbury Half takes place on 18th June 2017, and both events are open for registration.
