Ready to Run?
This Sunday is the 37th Marine Corps Marathon, a historic race on a beautiful course around our nation’s capitol. For the ninth year in a row, Brooks is the premier footwear and apparel sponsor of this “The People’s Marathon”. In addition to providing all the official Marine Corps Marathon gear, Brooks will be hosting Run Happy events throughout the weekend. If you are in town to run or cheer at MCM, we hope you can join us at the expo and on the race course!
