Last year, in its first incarnation, the 2011 Brooks PR invitational gave Brooks a well viewed example of how a performance footwear company could put together an event on the very crowded indoor high school track & field schedule. RBR welcomes the support of the sport from Brooks, but Brooks also did a unique event on the American high school calendar. With some fun (Golden Tickets, Ryan from Flocasts dressed up ala Willy Wonka for a hysterical commercial promoting Brooks PR) and some tremendously competitive races, Brooks has put its imprimatur on the big meets of the high school indoor season.
RBR will be at the 2012 Brooks PR invitational, with our live blog of the event, so, between Flocasts video of the meet, Brooks twitter live and our coverage, fans will have lots to check out!
