Hometown Heroes: Amateur athletes, elite achievements
The Brooks Hometown Heroes are sixty-two amateur runners from all across America. They’re scientists, schoolteachers, and punk musicians, just to name a few. And they balance full-time lives—the office, the kids, a grinding PhD program—with a full-time desire to improve their run. As 2020 approached, they were united by a common goal: To compete at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for the marathon event. To help them on their journey to running glory, we gave them access to the fastest shoes we’ve ever made: The Hyperion Elite and Hyperion Tempo. These are some of their stories.
