In an effort to better serve the endurance sports vertical, Treat Public Relations and Big Run Media have announced a new strategic partnership that will offer their clients the ‘opportunity to work with industry-focused public relations and strategic marketing professionals who have a deep understanding of their athletic audiences.’
As preferred affiliates, Treat Public Relations and Big Run Media will aim to offer a well-rounded, endurance-focus suite of services to their shared clientele.
“Public relations is a such powerful tool, but it is best executed in tandem with digital marketing initiatives,” said Meg Treat, Treat Public Relations owner and principal. “When I look for strategic partners to connect my clients with, it is of paramount importance to me that I can recommend fellow endurance athletes with stellar professional expertise. I’ve found peers in Big Run Media’s team and I look forward to working together to share our client’s stories.”
“Working in the marketing world for over 15 years, I understand the importance and impact public relations plays,” said Thomas Neuberger, Big Run Media co-founder, and principal. “To find a partner that matches our desire to create success for clients and shares our passion for the endurance market is tremendous. We are thrilled to offer our clients Treat Public Relations services to create awareness and drive real results for their events, products, and services.”
Treat Public Relations serves ‘brands and organizations that, through their events, services, products, or own athletic ability, inspire their audiences to conquer all the challenges that life and training throws their way.’ By offering clients media relations, media monitoring, crisis communications, expert positioning and content creation services, Treat Public Relations works to tell stories that aim to elevate and impact the endurance sports industry. Clients have been seen in such industry as Competitor, Triathlete, and Lava, as well as traditional news sources across the globe.
Meg Treat brings clients seven years of image management experience both with agencies and in-house with large corporations, as well as experience on the race course with eight half marathons, four full marathons, an ultra marathon and a triathlon on her athletic resume. Treat established her agency in late 2015.
