Running is the best, most addictive sport the world has ever known. Young or old, fast or slow, in it for the real-time rush or the done run’s after-effects—runners believe in the transformative power of the run.
Celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2014, Brooks Running Company has never been a stronger brand or business. Better yet, with its steadfast, singular focus on the run, Brooks is running right in the middle of this fantastic sport/lifestyle that is increasingly important in people’s lives. Talk about a runner’s high!
Running Through the First 100 Years takes the reader on a trip back in time as it chronicles the many ups and down Brooks has endured since starting as a little factory in Philadelphia that made ballet slippers and bathing shoes. Through fantastic product experiences, best-in-class service and a celebratory Run Happy spirit that stays true to the run, today this turnaround company forefronts a global movement, encouraging all of us in these pages to get the world running.
