Brooks, a Parkrun partner in the U.K. and Ireland since 2020, is extending the partnership to all Parkrun territories as the organization’s new global footwear partner and also becoming a presenting partner in the U.S., Netherlands and Germany. Over the past three years, Brooks has visited dozens of Parkrun sites, surprised communities with games and giveaways, and given Parkrun participants the opportunity to try out running, jogging, walking, etc., in Brooks shoes. The multi-year extended partnership will help keep Parkruns free for all and support everyone who wants to participate.

Founded in 2004 by Paul Sinton-Hewitt in the U.K., Parkrun is a platform that connects runners and communities for 5-K runs, jogs or walks every Saturday. The format is simple: you register once, print a barcode, then turn up and join in wherever and whenever you like.
