OSB Events, one of the leading sports events companies in the UK, has appointed Sports PR company Breathe Unity.
From July 2017 Breathe Unity will focus on raising further awareness of OSB Events and increasing the pace of sell-out of the many events that come under their umbrella, and in particular the Lincoln Half Marathon.
Since organising their first event in 1991, OSB Events have hosted hundreds of events for thousands of competitors in and around the Midlands. They are the team behind the award-winning Outlaw Triathlon, the Triathlon Relays and the Saucony Cambridge Half Marathon, as well as many other triathlon, running, duathlon and swimming events.
It is the ideal contract for Manchester-based Breathe Unity, who have over 25 years’ experience in the sports industry and are one of the leaders in Sports PR and race representation. Both Breathe Unity and OSB Events are passionate about encouraging a healthy lifestyle and maximising opportunities in order to achieve this, and the potential for future growth is huge.
The Lincoln Half Marathon is the primary focus for Breathe Unity, which is set to attract runners old and new to the historic city this autumn.
Iain Hamilton, Director of OSB Events, commented, “We are delighted to have appointed Breathe Unity, who have unrivalled experience and knowledge of the sports industry and specifically race representation. They have an excellent understanding of the needs of OSB Events as an event organiser and also of the management of individual events, and we are confident that their professional approach and industry connections will help us to further develop our offering.”
Rebecca Richardson, MD of Breathe Unity, added, “We are thrilled to have been chosen to manage the PR and media for the Lincoln Half Marathon and OSB Events, which is one of the most respected and well-established event organisers in the UK. It is fantastic to have such a diverse range of events to work on, and we are particularly excited about the Lincoln Half Marathon which will be a wonderful event to support and develop. It will be a pleasure to work with an event organiser that takes such pride in customer satisfaction and to be a part of their journey to deliver memorable race experiences.”
