GINGALLEY Sponsoring Georgetown, SC’s Inaugural 5k Marathon
GINGALLEY Web Design & Promotions is a proud sponsor of the upcoming Georgetown Marathon!
The City of Georgetown, South Carolina is excited to host the inaugural Bridge 2 Bridge Half Marathon and 5K Run/Walk to be held on Saturday, October 1st, 2011. The beautiful, historic, and charming seaport city will offer runners an event that showcases all of the unique features that make Georgetown such an interesting coastal community.
The Half Marathon route will start and finish in the hub of the city on Front Street in Historic Downtown Georgetown. After running past the downtown’s eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, and historic landmarks, including the famous Clock Tower at the Rice Museum, the course quickly transitions into the East Bay Park area where runners will be greeted by lovely views of Winyah Bay. As circling the park, off in the distance they will get their first glimpse of the two bridges that cross the Black and Waccamaw Rivers. Upon leaving East Bay Park the course takes them through a residential area showcasing Georgetown’s signature tree-lined streets and beautiful Lowcountry architecture. The route proceeds onto US Highway 17 where the next immediate focus will be to cross Georgetown’s gateway bridges. This early morning race will surely provide participants with amazing panoramic sunrise views of Winyah Bay, with Hobcaw Barony creating a splendid natural background.
We are excited to be involved with this Marathon since it is the first of many to follow. We worked closely with the City of Georgetown’s Marathon Committee to develop its Marathon logo which will surely evolve over time. The logo will be used in print collateral, reusable jute bags provided by BagWisely, t-shirts for the Marathon Runners as well as distributed to Media Outlets for promoting the event.
Although we do not have any plans of running the Marathon, we plan to go the distance by helping to make this event a success!
