Brooks Run Happy Race All Set

During the early 80s when i was just starting to join the first running boom, i wore the Brooks “Vantage” which was one of my first running shoes. Back then, it was available at most SM Department stores and retailed at around P600-700 a pair. I liked the feel of it and along with the Saucony running shoes which was also available during those times, it proved to be a very good alternative to the Adidas and Nike brands which were the top picks of those times.

Since being re-introduced two years ago, Brooks has garnered a lot of accolades and has elevated the brand as a top choice among discerning runners of all abilities. An industry leader, Brooks is responsible for unveiling many breakthrough footwear technologies. In 1975, Brooks pioneered the use of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate™ midsoles (EVA) which is now an industry standard. Brooks’ patented cushioning technology HydroFlow®—which functions like a hydraulic shock absorber upon impact—debuted in 1989, and Brooks introduced PDRB® in 2002 to control excessive pronation. In 2006, Brooks tackled midsole innovation once again with the debut of MoGo, a midsole compound delivering increased cushioning, more energy return, and less fatigue—without sacrificing stability. The latest entrant to the midsole lineup, BioMoGo launches in July 2008 as the first-ever biodegradable running shoe midsole.

  1. Thanks for all these info. We’re going straight to Toby’s and register after the CCF race tomorrow. Looking forward for the singlets too.

    • Hi Renz! I purposely did not include the 3k map yet as the organizers said that there will be some slight changes in the route. Will post it once it becomes available.

    • I’m sorry to hear that, Sianne. I heard that the 3k turn-around was misplaced(?) and this is just dissapointing if you’re doing a PR.
