Partner Case Studies


INEOS encouraged activity amongst children through the creation of a new white label event series, Go Run For Fun. From 2013-2018, over 330,000 children from local schools took part in the UK, France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, the USA, Mexico and Singapore, running 2km on memorable event days.


Duracell, Great Run Series partner 2016-2018, amplified #runforlonger by recruiting 220 expert club runners to pace participants. Pacers were branded as Duracell bunnies and complemented by warm-ups and #DURA-Selfie cheer boards. The campaign returned £1.95 million in TV exposure and 72% of runners said they were more likely to buy from Duracell.


Bank of Scotland, title partner of the Great Scottish Run 2008-2019, created a ‘Wall of Support’ campaign. Over 5,500 supporters submitted messages which were automatically displayed to their runners on digital screens as they ran on event day. The campaign received a 34% email click rate and the bank reached 1.15 million people on Great Scottish Run social media.
