The Brooks Run Happy® Cavalcade of Curiosities , a running-inspired carnival experience that will tour the country hitting running shops, events, and Rock ‘n’ Roll expos over the next several years, is currently making its way up the West coast!
Runners of all ages, skill levels, shapes, and sizes will be entertained, educated, and awed by the Cavalcade, which is highlighted by a custom double-decker British bus featuring free running gait analysis on the upper level and an Arcade of Oddities on the lower level. The Arcade of Oddities "museum" displays running wonders such as the world’s biggest shoe, the legendary “Bunion Boy’s” malady preserved and pulsating in a jar, and other strange and memorable exhibits. Prizes are also up for grabs.
Next stops on the tour are:
Wednesday, June 16 : Portland, OR – Fit Right NW , from 2-7 p.m.
Thursday, June 17: Portland, OR – Foot Traffic , from 2-6 p.m.
Monday, June 21 : Issaquah, WA – FootZone Issaquah , from 4-7:30 p.m.

A full list of 2010 tour stops will soon be posted at the official Run Happy® Cavalcade website, www.runhappy.com . There, runners can also play along every day for a chance to win FREE prizes from Brooks! Friday’s daily prize is the HVAC Infiniti Mesh Cap and five will be awarded.
