Activity includes cross-channel community management and race day content creation. Having first supported the 2019 London Marathon, we then helped support the first virtual London Marathon in 2020 before being retained to the present day across the event.

What the client says
TCS London Marathon logo.
PaceUp's support across social media during my time at London Marathon Events has been invaluable in helping us maintain a strong level of communication with participants and the wider London Marathon community. Their understanding of mass participation events, running, cycling and what audiences respond to has been really useful to us. PaceUp have proved a really important asset to our team year-on-year when we need to scale up our activity.
