Congratulations to our 2011 Brooks PR Spike Contest Winners

We have a winner in the Brooks PR Spike Contest – six winners, actually, one for each spike. These athletes competed throughout the track season, posting the best times they ran in their Brooks spikes. The athletes’ time, venue run, and city will be printed on each spike so that everyone will know what the fastest time run by a high school athlete was in each Brooks spike the previous year. Next track season, each pair of spikes will again be named after the fastest time run in that spike by a high school athlete…they already have a mark to shoot for!

Congratulations to all the winners.
