The PureProject on the Run Champions!

Seattle Winner at Greenlake

Our 14-city PureProject on the Run contest started in Philadelphia and ended in Seattle

On September 18, PureProject on the Run began adventuring across the United States. From New York City to Seattle, we traveled from coast to coast giving away PureProject shoes along the way. Two weeks, 14 pictures, 14 cities, and one giant stuffed bear later we had given away 28 pairs of PureProject shoes.

We would like to thank everyone whose fingers went numb because of refreshing Brooks Facebook page so many times while waiting for hints to be posted, and those who sprinted desperately around parks looking for where we were hidden after reading the hints, and those who tied running shoes on their dog’s paws or children’s feet so that they could be selected as the online photo winner. We would like to thank all the happy runners who helped make PureProject on the Run so much fun.

Nicole in New York City found us the fastest! She arrived at our hiding spot only four minutes after the hint was posted on Facebook. Dan in Colorado Springs, CO was the most enthusiastic winner, cheering as he ran to find our Brooks Guru. Check out what Dan wrote about the experience!

Nearly 500 photos were entered into the online contest. We selected 14 winners and compiled them here for your enjoyment. To see the rest of the entered photos please visit our Brooks Running Facebook page and click on “photos”.

We would also like to congratulate the 14 individuals who frantically speed down streets, ran over hill and dale, or just happened to be in the right place at the right time, and found PureProject on the Run and a free pair of PureProject shoes. Below are those heroic individuals.
