Runner's World Magazine Singles Out Brooks Sports; Two Lucky Winners Choose From Three Notable Styles of Brooks Running Shoes

Whatever a runner's experience level, Brooks offers a great balance of style, comfort and technological advancement. and Brooks Sports are teaming up for a contest to give away two pairs of running shoes. Each winner gets to choose from one of three styles recently distinguished by Runner's World among running-only brands: the Brooks Glycerin® 8, Brooks Adrenaline™ GTS 11 and Brooks Ghost 3. Read on to learn more about Brooks Sports, Brooks running shoes, and find out how to enter the running shoe giveaway contest, which goes from February 25 to March 11, 2011.

Headquartered in Bothell, Washington, Brooks Sports has a history dating back nearly a century, to 1914, when Brooks was established as a manufacturer of cleated athletic shoes and ice skates. It wasn't until the 1970s—when the jogging craze hit its stride—that Brooks first distinguished itself as a running shoe brand, and today, that focus is truer than ever before. Brooks is dedicated to providing the best running shoes, clothing and accessories possible, catering to the needs of novice and professional runners alike—because, in the words of their motto, Brooks wants every customer to "Run Happy®."

Through input from top university researchers and high-performance athletes alike, the Brooks running company has developed technologies engineered to meet the biomechanical needs of runners of all shapes and sizes, enhancing comfort and reducing the risk of injury. Three notable advancements include the eco-friendly BioMoGo biodegradable running-shoe midsole (which biodegrades 50 times faster than conventional athletic-shoe midsoles), Brooks DNA, an instantly adaptive cushioning system designed to work with BioMoGo, and the Progressive Diagonal Rollbar.

These three proprietary features and more are incorporated into the popular Brooks running shoe for moderate overpronators, the Brooks Adrenaline™ GTS 11 running shoe, which is available in a wide range of sizes and widths for both men and women. Additional shock absorption and enhanced cushioning are provided by HydroFlow®—dynamic viscous fluid in the heel and forefoot—while an abrasion-resistant HPR™ Plus outsole offers outstanding traction and durability. In rethinking the Adrenaline™ GTS 10, designers added Brooks DNA and a dynamic arch saddle to the Adrenaline™ GTS 11, inspiring Runner's World to give this shoe the "Best Update" award in December 2010.

Likewise featuring a planet-friendly BioMoGo midsole, HydroFlow® and durable HPR™ Plus outsole, the sporty Brooks Ghost 3 running shoe is designed for neutral runners and is available for both women and men. Breathable yet protected from the elements, the Ghost 3 also boasts DRB® Accel for torsional rigidity and CushPod™ construction for stability and responsiveness. The Brooks Ghost 3 was honored with the "2010 International Editor's Choice" award from Runner's World, announced in the Fall 2010 Shoe Guide.

In March 2010, the magazine singled out another popular Brooks running shoe: The Brooks Glycerin® 8 running shoe was recognized for delivering a cushy, customized ride for runners of all sizes and speeds, garnering an "Editor's Choice" award. With a lightweight synthetic and mesh upper, Brooks DNA, a BioMoGo midsole and CushPod™ comfort, the Brooks Glycerin® 8 is a surefire hit for a wide spectrum of runners.

"Brooks running shoes just keep getting better, and the fact that many customers prefer newer models, such as the Adrenaline™ GTS 11, over the predecessors is a testament to that. Whatever a runner's experience level, Brooks offers a great balance of style, comfort and technological advancement," says buyer Emily Waldron.
