Enmarket Extends Partnership with Sports Council for Savannah Bridge Run
June 18, 2018 — This month, the Savannah Sports Council signed a contract with Enmarket to extend their title sponsorship of the Savannah Bridge Run through December of 2019. The Bridge Run is the Sports Council’s longest-running event, taking place every year since 1991. The 2018 race, scheduled for December 1, will mark the 15th year of Enmarket’s title sponsorship.
“The Savannah Sports Council is thrilled that Enmarket has renewed their support of the Enmarket Savannah Bridge Run,” says Rob Wells, director of the Savannah Sports Council. “We appreciate their continued confidence and dedication to “the South’s toughest bridge run” and their commitment to a healthier Savannah. We look forward to working closely with them in continuing to provide local participants and our visitors with the best possible race experience.”
Enmarket’s Director of Marketing Matt Clements says that the long-standing partnership is one of Enmarket’s most valued. “Enmarket is excited to continue its support of this great Savannah tradition and continuing our partnership with the Savannah Sports Council. Volunteering at this event is something our staff looks forward to every year. It is a great opportunity to connect with the community and aligns with our mission to enrich life.”
A portion of the race proceeds benefits the Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion at St. Joseph’s/Candler Hospital, an organization both the Savannah Sports Council and Enmarket are proud to support as one of the most innovative clinical oncology programs in the Southeast.
The Enmarket Savannah Bridge Run weekend kicks off with a Health & Wellness Expo Friday, November 30 at the Savannah Civic Center where participants can pick up their packets as well as shop official merchandise and vendor booths. Saturday morning race options include a 5K, 10K, Double Pump and Kids Run, starting at the bottom of the Talmadge Bridge on the Hutchinson Island side of the river. After crossing the finish line on Montgomery Street, racers can revel at the Michelob Ultra Post-Race Party presented by Host South in Franklin Square. Costume contest winners will also be announced at the party, with cash prizes announced in first, second and third places for groups and individuals.
