Sports Backers, Lyft Announce Multi-Event On-Demand Transportation Partnership for 2018-19

RICHMOND, VA – Lyft announced on Tuesday a multi-event partnership with Sports Backers for the 2018/2019 season as the official on-demand transportation partner. The sponsorship features eight events from August 2018 through July 2019, including the Anthem Richmond Marathon, Ukrop’s Monument Avenue 10k presented by Kroger, Dominion Energy Riverrock and more.

This innovative partnership aims to streamline the travel options for Sports Backers’ events through the ease and convenience of on-demand transportation. Designated pick-up and drop-off locations will be available for each event, as well as event-specific promo codes, helping to alleviate travel challenges for local and out-of-town participants.

“We are excited to be partnering with Sports Backers for the 2018-2019 events season. The mission of Sports Backers feels very closely aligned to that of Lyft – invest in the local community and support those around you,” said Cabell Rosanelli, Market Manager for Lyft Richmond. “We look forward to working together to ensure that event participants, spectators, and volunteers have a convenient and cost-effective transportation option to and from Sports Backers events throughout the course of our partnership.”

“This partnership is a great opportunity to enhance the overall experience for participants and spectators,” said Megan Schultz, Director of Events for Sports Backers. “We always strive to add innovative features to our events, and working with Lyft to provide on-demand transportation options is a great way to bring even more convenience to event day.”

The next Sports Backers’ event of the partnership is Trails & Ales on October 6th. Participants can use the code RVATRAILS18 to get discounted rides to and from the event.
