Send Us Your Race Medals and Become Part of Brooks History

Picture a statue of a runner.

Now picture it bigger. Now picture it even bigger.

Now imagine it made out of medals won by runners from across the nation.

Now imagine your medal is part of it. All this can be true!

Our new global headquarters building at Stone 34 is coming along at quite the pace. The foundation is done, walls are going up and we’re ready to bring Run Happy to our new neighborhood in Seattle.

Right now, we’ve got decorating on the mind and our race-medal runner is all we can think about! Donate your medal and we’ll make it part of our larger-than-life statue at our new HQ.

Then you can bring your friends by and be like, “There it is. No big deal.”

Fill out the form below and mail it and your medal to us to have your medal cemented sculpted into history!

Brooks Running

Attn: Andrea Brown

4300 Roosevelt Way NE

Seattle, WA 98105

Remember that medals will not be returned. They’ll be used to build the sculpture and will help inspire runners who pass by. We’ll be sure to recognize you and your contribution in our new retail store, and of course, in our hearts forever! Please mail medals by April 1.

    Can’t wait to see the store. When do you think it’ll be open?

  • kenster

    I’ve got two dozen medals. Can I give you more than one?

  • Alex Chiu

    Just donated about 10 metals me and my friends have more can we mail them to you after april 1st maybe the 10th of April? Found out about this late. I also live in Seattle can I drop them off somewhere after the 1st?

  • Angelica Guerrero

    Are you still accepting medals? I just cleaned my pile and have a few dozens to give! It is April 13 and the Fleet Feet store where I run still has the box for donations on the premises. Could I leave them there?

    • brooksblog

      We’re so sorry, Angelica; we are no longer accepting medals (deadline was April 1). We just got a note that Fleet Feet in Chicago will be turning in their collection box past the April 1 deadline. If you give them a call, perhaps you can work with them to add your medals before they ship them out. Sorry for the confusion, and thanks for reaching out!
