Brooks came through big time. Our runners were really depressed about the whole situation, but this was a huge lift for their spirits. The kids love their uniforms, backpacks, and water bottles, and they can’t wait to get running this year.”

Alan McGaughey

Give young runners a leg up.

Our need-based program provides performance running footwear, apparel, equipment, and funding to under-resourced cross-country and track teams across the US. The Brooks Booster Club targets high school teams specifically to help close the gap created by drastic cuts in funding to running programs at that level.

Since 2015, the program has helped 129 schools and 5,500 young runners across the U.S. with more than US$1.8 million in cash and gear donations. Each school recipient gets enough training shoes, racing shoes, uniforms, and warm-up apparel for a 30-person team, plus US$2,000 to help with expenses.

Do you know of a high school track or cross-country team that could use the assistance of a Brooks Booster Club grant? Read more about the process and fill out an application here.
