Just five days and counting!
Brooks is headed to DC this week to support the sold-out 36th Marine Corps Marathon. This event should be huge! We are expecting over 100,000 visitors to the three-day Marine Corps Marathon expo at the Armory, and will be cheering on the 43,000 participants running the Marine Corps 10K, half-marathon and marathon events. We have a lot planned, so we hope you can join us as a visitor to the expo or a runner on Sunday. A complete listing of events and activities is available at www.marinemarathon.com.
Brooks will be bringing our full line of shoes and apparel (including our all-new PureProject) to the expo. Our booth will also be the only place where you can buy official Marine Corps Marathon technical running apparel. Get to the expo early because we will sell-out of the stylish Brooks MCM shirts, shorts and jackets.
In addition to our expo booth, Brooks is also hosting our VIP Porta-Potty on the morning of the race. For the chance to visit these super-plush potties, you will have to have an entry sticker. Click here to learn how you can pick one one before Sunday.
Receive Real-Time Update as Friends Run MCM
For the first time at the MCM, runners can have their 10K, 20K, 30K, 40K and finish-line split times automatically posted on their personal Facebook and/or Twitter pages. Family and friends will be able to follow a runner’s progress along the course in real time.
Win a Super-Sized Goodie Bag
Brooks and the Marine Corps Marathon are partnering to give away 36 super-sized goodie bags (celebrating the 36th year of the MCM). These bags include a pair of Brooks shoes, gift cards and other fantastic MCM prizes. To find one of these special goodie bags, follow MCM on Twitter and Facebook for tips on how to win.

Brooks will also be giving away a goodie bag to the first MCM expo visitor who comes to our booth, tries on shoes and says “OORAH” to a secret Brooks sales rep. Good luck!
