INSPIRING STORIES

Hometown Heroes: amateur athletes, elite achievements.

The Brooks Hometown Heroes are sixty-two amateur runners from across America. They’re scientists, schoolteachers, punk musicians. Just to name a few. They’re also runners who’ll be competing at the 2020 Marathon Trials. So, you might see them at the office, with the kids or grinding through a PhD program. But you’ll also see them out in the world, getting miles in every day, however they can. 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.
