SpectaSport, a leading race chip timing company and promoter of two points series for running races in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, has announced that GetPhound Digital Marketing has renewed it’s series sponsorship for 2019. “I’m ecstatic to have GetPhound back on board for the 2019 GetPhound Fall Points Series,” said SpectaSport President Ken Getchell. “I know first-hand the quality of their work because the search engine results for our website have improved dramatically after joining GetPhound. We now routinely field inquiries from around the county and refer them to colleagues in other states.”
GetPhound is a full-service digital marketing agency located in the hip Philadelphia suburb of Conshohocken. Founded in 2013, GetPhound now serves over 200 small and medium sized business and helps them “get found” on the busy internet marketplace by focusing on three core services: website design, search engine optimization, and content marketing. 2019 will be GetPhound’s second year as title sponsor of one of SpectaSport’s semi-annual points series.
The GetPhound Fall Points Series is the second of SpectaSport’s “Seasonal and Regional” points series. The series runs from September until early December and includes races distances varying from road 5K’s all the way to a trail half-marathon. Runners are automatically enrolled in the series when they enter any of the races in the series and score points primarily based on their age group results, with small additional bonuses given to the top 3 Men and Women at each race. A minimum of $100 each is awarded to the Male and Female runners who score the most point during the duration of each series.
According to Getchell, the GetPhound Fall Points Series, along with SpectaSport’s accompanying Spring & Summer Points Series, has a unique focus. “In the past, Running Series were usually either a handful of events that were all in, or near, the same town. Or, they required participants to make a 9 or 10 month commitment, which most people with jobs and families can’t really do. On the other hand, a 2-3 month focus on improving age group results in races that are mostly raising money for charity is a fitness goal that even the busiest of us can achieve. The idea behind our series is to give runners a series with a variety of races over a couple month span, with no additional fees or paperwork, because running should be fun.”
