P3R, which operates many of Pittsburgh’s running races, and Brooks Running announced another three-year partnership. Brooks will continue as the Official Apparel and Footwear Provider for all of P3R’s races including, but not limited to, the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon weekend of events, Fleet Feet Liberty Mile, EQT Pittsburgh 10 Miler, GAP Relay presented by UPMC Health Plan, and the FlyBy 5K presented by CNX Resources.
“The Brooks Running team is excited to continue our partnership with P3R by being the Official Apparel and Footwear Sponsor for all events,” said Brooks Event Marketing Manager, Stevie Jones. “We’re looking forward to continuing to grow our relationship with the Pittsburgh community by offering custom shoe launches and more.”
Through this partnership, P3R will offer participants at the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon weekend of events the opportunity to purchase Brooks co-branded gear, such as a finisher jacket and other training gear. Brooks will also continue the tradition of creating an official Pittsburgh-themed running shoe that celebrates the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon with its black and gold colors. The Pittsburgh-edition of the Brooks Launch 7 is scheduled to release in Spring 2020.
“Brooks is an iconic brand in the running community, which makes this partnership really special to us,” said Troy Schooley, P3R CEO. “Both P3R and Brooks are focused on creating an unforgettable experience for our runners, so we love teaming up and achieving this together.”
Each year, more than 50,000 runners from all 50 states and 20 countries participate in P3R’s signature races.
