Recently, HURT was approached by Brooks Running exploring the possibility of enlisting some Hawaii runners to participate in their wear testing program. The Brooks Run Research Team is looking for more trail testers and they mentioned the phenomenal support the HURT Trail receives. They highly encourage members of our running community to apply, as it would be great to send free product to potential testers and gather some feedback on their products. If interested, please see the email details below that we received from Arthur Sunga.
Hi, my name is Arthur Sunga, and I am a researcher on the run research team at Brooks Running in Seattle. I’m reaching out to your club because Brooks is passionate about running and developing the best run gear so that everybody can Run Happy. Our research teams are experts in understanding the body in motion and work to innovate in run technology.
An important step to this runner-centered innovation is asking runners for their feedback on our run gear. To best serve the running community, we are seeking new runners to join our Wear Test program. As a participant, your runners will periodically receive free gear. In exchange, we will ask testers to run and walk in our gear and complete an online survey to share their experience running in the gear – specifically how it fits and feels, and what they like and dislike about the product.
At Brooks we celebrate diversity, equity, and inclusion and encourage runners of different races, abilities, genders, ages, sexual orientation, body types, and backgrounds to apply. Due to our sample production process, we are particularly seeking people who wear a women’s size 6.5, 8.5, 10, 10.5, 12, or 13.5 shoe and a men’s size 7, 8.5, 9, 10.5, or 12 shoe.
If you or any of your members are interested in joining the Wear Test program, please sign up using the below link. If you are directly affiliated with a local running store, please make sure our wear test program does not interfere with your partnership. If you have any questions or would like to discuss Brooks’ Wear Test program, please feel free to reach out via email!
When you do fill out the survey please select “Email Campaign” when answering the question “How did you hear about our product testing program?”
