Berkshire Hathaway, the conglomerate of the famous tycoon Warren Buffett, will add a 5-kilometer run to the festivities at its annual shareholder weekend this coming May. In celebration of the race, Brooks Running, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, has produced a limited edition of its PureCadence 2 sneaker featuring a caricature of Buffett crossing the tape at the finish line. Shareholders will be able to buy the shoe from the Brooks booth at the shareholder expo. Buffett is expected to fire the starting gun and crown the winners at the podium. The Invest in Yourself run on May 5, the day after the shareholder meeting, will take participants on a scenic route through downtown and historic Omaha, Nebraska.
