This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Running is the best, most addictive sport the world has ever known. Young or old, fast or slow, in it for the real-time rush or the done run’s after-effects—runners believe in the transformative power of the run.
Celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2014, Brooks Running Company has never been a stronger brand or business. Better yet, with its steadfast, singular focus on the run, Brooks is running right in the middle of this fantastic sport/lifestyle that is increasingly important in people’s lives. Talk about a runner’s high!
Running Through the First 100 Years takes the reader on a trip back in time as it chronicles the many ups and down Brooks has endured since starting as a little factory in Philadelphia that made ballet slippers and bathing shoes. Through fantastic product experiences, best-in-class service and a celebratory Run Happy spirit that stays true to the run, today this turnaround company forefronts a global movement, encouraging all of us in these pages to get the world running.
