A guide for participants, residents and tourists who want to explore the nine-day event, the site launched Aug. 5 and includes information on course routes, street closures, transportation and parking options.

Neathawk Dubuque & Packett gave retiring senior copywriter Mac Calhoun a send-off with a citywide ad campaign. Ads featuring Calhoun’s photo and headlines such as “Insert headline here; obviously, words fail us” and “Mac has left the building” appeared in a full-page ad in the Times-Dispatch and on five digital outdoor billboards. Calhoun is retiring after 37 years in the business. In addition, the agency won three new accounts: a contract with the Virginia Department of Health to customize national “HIV Treatment Works” materials throughout the state, including posters and digital ads; public relations on behalf of the Boys Home of Virginia to promote the Covington-based nonprofit’s inaugural “Teach a Man to Fish” event, which benefits residents and other ongoing Boys Home programs; and a brand campaign for Baton Rouge General Medical Center in Louisiana that includes broadcast, digital, print and outdoor advertising slated to break this fall.
