Best known for costumed runners and Centipedes, the Alaska Airlines Bay to Breakers is one of the largest footraces in the world with over 40,000 participants annually. Now, thanks to a new strategic partnership, the iconic San Francisco race is in a unique position to leverage RacePartner’s registration expertise with Achieve’s proven best practices in website design and digital marketing.
Looking ahead to the 2018 race, the Bay to Breakers team approached RacePartner and Achieve for strategy and implementation of a digital campaign to grow the event that has been considered a staple to the City by the Bay for over 100 years.
“It was important that we partner with an organization that not only understands the trends in the endurance industry, but also really embraces what our race is all about,” said Chris Holmes, vice president of marketing and operations with Wasserman, which owns and operates the race. “RacePartner and Achieve’s commitment to data-driven insights will allow us to reach new runners and families who are intrigued by our bucket-list experience.”
“Our teams are really excited to partner with an event that fosters so much local pride,” said Robert Anderson, executive vice president of RacePartner. “Alaska Airlines Bay to Breakers has represented the San Francisco spirit since 1912, and we’re thrilled to bring our expertise in race registration, web design and digital marketing to such a fun and diverse event.”
In addition to being one of Outside Magazine’s Top 10 Iconic Races, the Alaska Airlines Bay to Breakers is routinely considered the “best dressed” race around – including everyone from Superman to Mr. & Mrs. Pacman. As one of the longest consecutively run annual footraces in the world, it’s a one-of-a-kind event that you don’t want to miss. So dust off your favorite costume and block off May 20, 2018 to participate in the world’s biggest unofficial costume contest.
