Case Study / HIGHLANDER

OVERVIEW

HIGHLANDER is the world's first and largest global long-distance hiking event series. To launch the brand's U.S. expansion, 5W executed a media relations campaign to officially announce the inaugural Big Bear Lake event, while also introducing HIGHLANDER to the U.S. as the biggest adventure and long-distance hiking event series across the globe.

STRATEGY

5W's strategic approach included a 360-degree media relations campaign, targeting key reporters across travel, sports, lifestyle, outdoors, men's interest, and women's interest outlets. Throughout the campaign, we leveraged insight from CEO Jurica Barac on the development story of HIGHLANDER, and its unique participant stories to garner meaningful, top-tier media placements, as well as key insights and statistics with the media to drive additional storytelling moments for the brand.
