In 2010, B&E announced a major new sponsorship initiative, signing up as the naming-rights sponsor for the inaugural Hobart Run the Bridge Fun Run.
Since then the event has gone from strength to strength and in 2017 attracted more than 3,200 participants from all sections of the local community, including elite runners, joggers, walkers and people of all ages and fitness levels.
