“Brooks Running and Race SLO share the same values of getting people moving and actively engaged in building better bodies, better lives and ultimately better communities. For over a decade we have invested in humans, using endurance sports as our platform for good. Brooks is deeply invested in people as well by innovating quality gear and shoes designed to help runners run longer, farther and faster. We couldn’t be more excited to have their support,” said Samantha Pruitt, Race SLO Founder and CEO.

“Brooks Running and Race Roster are excited to partner with Race SLO to learn more about running shoe purchasing habits and promote Brooks’ unique 90 Day True Blue guarantee to close out 2018. This digital partnership will gather unique insights at the point of purchase on a runner’s affinity towards specific brands and shoe models. Additionally, by reaching runners at the point of digital purchase, Brooks is joining runners on a training journey that begins online, continues on roads and trails, and ends at the finish line. The program will also encourage runners to engage with industry-leading digital tools like the Brooks Shoe Finder, and Sports Bra Finder before considering a purchase during a training cycle.” said Dennis Mazajlo, Race Roster Manager of Strategic Partnership.
