Join the Brooks Big Endorsement and Become an Endorsed Athlete!

Most runners never see the big money, fame, and glamorous lifestyle given to athletes of other sports. We want to change that by endorsing runners of all types. Slow, fast, new to the sport, or longtime veterans, Brooks believes in giving you the fame and recognition you deserve.

Today, in honor of Global Running Day, we’re launching the Big Endorsement, the biggest athletic endorsement deal in history. We’re signing runners of all speeds and abilities and inviting everyone to be part of Brooks and get out and run—whatever that means to you.

Sign up now at BrooksAthlete.com.

When you register, you’ll get exclusive access to training and nutrition resources, many of which were developed by Brooks’ own coaches Danny Mackey and Keith and Kevin Hanson. You’ll get your very own athlete card to share online including your Brooks athlete number. You’ll of course get your signed endorsement deal and lastly, you’ll get a check that you can cash for $1.00 (for runners in the U.S. and Canada)!

    If I sign the endorsement, what is it expected from me as a runner? do certain amount of races? have certain times on races? Thanks.

  • Ash Robison

    How do I retrieve my brooks running number? I signed up but lost the email.

  • Filomeno Vargas

    how to I get a sponsorship from you guys. I am a runner, run cross country, and track at my high school. You can go to mile split and look up Filomeno Vargas. I am out right know because I had a hernia surgery.

    • Hello Filomeno! Thanks for connecting. The team at Brooks that handles athlete sponsorships starts their process by evaluate personal bests and race results. Currently, sponsorships of athletes on the Brooks Beasts and Hansons-Brooks Original Distance Project teams go to post-collegiate athletes.

  • Brooke

    Hello there! I am not sure who I could contact about my interest in being a Brooks sponsor! I am 25 years old and have gotten into running the past three years. I’ve been first female in many races around the KCMO area and just hit a new half marathon PR — 1:30:07. I am a 4th grade teacher and health enthusiast. I absolutely love the Brooks brand and would love to represent the company.

    • Hi Brooke! Thanks for reaching out. We’ll share your information and inquiry with our sports marketing team. Thanks, and Run Happy!

      • Brooke

        Awesome! I look forward to hearing back from your sports marketing team. Have a wonderful week!

  • Sabrina

  • Myrinda Grantham

    Are you guys going to do this again in 2018? I hate I missed out on the fun!

    • Hi Myrinda! We don’t yet have any plans we can share, but we’ll definitely make sure you and all runners can take part if we do this again. Run Happy!

  • zalewskimm

    Hello. I am hoping to run Boston at the age of 100. That is years away (lol) but hey why not start early and take Brooks with me. My ego would be inflated even further with a Brooks endorsement. Kindly provide details whenever Brooks toys with the idea of bringing it back again. I’m a decent enough super masters guy with lots of pretty medals and awards adoring my spare bedroom. A great ambassador of the sport, am I. 🙂 Thank you!

    • @123443211234:disqus We love your ambition and will definitely let you know if this campaign comes back. Run Happy!

  • Camelia Mayfield

    I ran a 19:46:57 placing F7 at Western States this last weekend in your shoe. Please reach out if you want to partner together.

  • Micayla Rennick

    Hello, I’m a post collegiate athlete (this is my first season of cross country as one) looking for a Brooks Sponsorship. While I do run cross country, my focus is track, and while working on my master’s degree, it’s really hard to pay for races. I ran at a D1 level in the Ohio Valley Conference, winning the indoor mile, 3k, and 800, then taking first in the 10k and 1500 outdoors with a narrow second place finish in the 800 and 5k. My current PR’s are 10k- 34:25, 5k – 16:30, 3k – 9:30, 800m – 2:09, Mile – 4:39, 1500 – 4:20. Please contact me micaylarennick@gmail.com if you would like to partner together.

    • Hi Micayla. Thanks for sharing your stats, and congrats on a great collegiate career. We’ll share your information with our sports marketing team for their consideration. Run Happy!

  • Anna Grace

    Hi Brooks! My name is Anna Grace and I am a long time runner and a huge huge fan of all kinds of Brooks shoes! Throughout my running days, I have enjoyed racing flats, spikes, and the Launches and Ghosts! My fastest 5k is a 19:45 but I dont find that that matters, I think that the fun of running is what matters!! I got injured running because I didn’t want to and was competing hard and am now coming back to running after a hip surgery and I want to help spread inspiration and positivity to those around that running can be fun and its a privilege to run. I hope you can consider me!

  • Shaun Pettigrew

    I am Native American representing the Navajo Nation, I am fairly new to the running world. I started my journey to a healthy lifestyle with cycling, but soon found a new passion for triathlons & running. When I am not training or racing, I participate in motivational & community events to share my story and positivity as a role model to athletes of all abilities. In 2018 I completed my first half marathon and my first half ironman. I am seeking support for 2019 season as my current sponsor has discontinued their running department and now are strictly cycling.

    • Hello Shaun. Thanks for sharing your story with us, and welcome to the running world! We’ll share your information with our sports marketing team for their consideration. Run Happy!

  • Allie Kiick

    Hi Brooks!

    I am a professional tennis player who has endured several knee issues. I play in all the biggest tournaments around the world (including grand slams) and absolutely love to wear brooks for my off court training and just walking around in general. What people forget with us tennis players is we spend just as much time off court working with weights, cardio, and footwork, all of which having a shoe that is comfortable and most importantly protects my knees is key. Many people are always curious to know which shoes I wear just because of all the knee issues I’ve had. If you sponsor me, I promise I’d play a great role in helping market your shoes. I am already verified on all social media pages, I’ve been on TV several times, and if you google my name you can get more information about me, my career, and everything I’ve gone through the past few years. I really hope you consider me!

    • Hi Allie! Thanks for stopping by and sharing a bit about yourself. We’ll share your information with our sports marketing team for their consideration. Run Happy!

  • Codie Downs

    How do you become an endorsed athlete

    • Hi Codie! The Big Endorsement campaign has ended, so we aren’t endorsing any athletes through that program. We’re always looking for ambitious runners to work with, though. Feel free to tell us about yourself here and we can pass your information along to our sports marketing team for consideration!

  • Ryan Martin

    Hello Brooks
    My name is Ryan Martin. I have recently retired from the Army and stayed here in Germany. I love running trails and on normal conditions. I always get a kick out people when they see me get ready for any distance race from a 5k- 1/2 Marathons. This because I am 6’2 and weigh over 260 lbs. I can run a 5k in less then 23 minutes and a 1/2 Marathon in 2:05. For me running releases so stress and I always feel relaxed after my runs. I was wondering how I can go about getting endorsed by Brooks. I love to show just because you are Big doesn’t mean you can’t run and do well.

    • Hi Ryan! Thanks for sharing your story with us; we love the positive effects of running, too! We will share your information with our team here at Brooks for their consideration. Run Happy!

    Good Morning Brooks,
    I am a 55 year old male. I ran cross Country in Grade and High School. About 10 years ago, my dad died from Diabetes. That was a wake up call! I was 5’10 255 lbs. I saw myself falling into the obese trap. I started to walk and run.
    5 years ago I got back into running competitively again. I mostly ran 5 and 10ks. 2 years ago, I did my first four half marathons. This year, i completed my first marathons breaking 4 hrs with a 3:58:13.
    Oh yeah, I tossed in my first trail Ultra too. 60K in around 10 hrs! After all the training runs and fun competitive runs, it has changed my life! So many running friends!
    So many FUN runs!
    Here, in Wisconsin, it can be a challenge in Dec and Jan with temps dropping below -20 in temperature. Toss in snow and ice, those training runs can be interesting! Just layering, warm socks, face mask, warm gloves and great running shoes and I’m nice and warm! I’m planning my runs for 2019 and I have a mixture of 5Ks to Marathons on my schedule. Some in Wisconsin, Texas, Tennesse, California, Minnesota and New York are all on my list. Each and every run, I look forward to the adventure!!!
    Prs: 5K 21:24, 10K 45:23, HM 1:42 M 3:58.
    Run Happy!!!

    Hi Brooks team.
    I live in Los Angeles I’m a 36 year old male. Here in LA running is a big thing. My friends and I run on Monday night with” RUNDALA” in downtown, Wednesday nights are either With “NIHGT TERROS in Beverly Hills or WERUNLA but these guys run in different locations. Saturday morning are for BLACKLIST with this team we’re training for the LA marathon our current pace is under 7 minutes per mile, on 16 miles I’m sure we’ll improve that with the training.

    What inspires me to run is the improvement that I’ve achieved during these two years that I’ve been running, it’s become a life style is something that I can’t stop doing. More over next 2019 will be amazing we already have registered on February 17th for the firecracker 10k in Chinatown LA, we also have a 12k in Griffith Park on the 26th same month and the big event will be on March 24 the LA marathon, finally on jun we have a half marathon in Mammoth lake. The key is to stay active through the year. Thanks a lot for your time.

    • Thanks for sharing your story, Francisco! Keep running strong, and Run Happy this year!

  • Viktor Metz

    Hey Brooks,
    I am casually running since I am 18. But I was always overweight and never had the willpower/habits to run on a regular basis. Especially in my mid-twenties I was occupied with depression and anxiety for years. I was a heavy smoker, drinker and tried to avoid my feelings by using drugs.
