Rees Leisure

Changing lives through healthy competition

An events company with ambition needs a PR agency to match. It’s why Rees Leisure relies on Lee Peck Media to raise awareness of its sporting events.

When the firm brought Southampton its first half marathon in 30 years Lee Peck Media was there every step of the 13.1 mile way. Our team of ex journalists were able to identify newsworthy stories among the runners and deliver them to the media, resulting in coverage across national as well as regional press. The proof of our hard work in promoting the event was evident in the numbers, with more than 6,500 people pounding the pavements and taking part in year one. The event has now grown into the biggest running event in Southampton, with a full marathon distance and more than 10,000 runners.

We also support Rees Leisure in promoting its triathlons, regularly securing large features in specialist sporting magazines.

We’re currently working with Rees Leisure on its latest bold project – to bring Southampton its first ever official sailing week.
