Brooks brings Run Happy Tour to SXSW
Brooks Running will host free morning runs Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

By Pam LeBlanc

Brooks Running is bringing its Run Happy Tour, complete with DJ-led morning runs, to SXSW Interactive.

The shoe maker will host group runs at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday, starting at the SXSW Registrant's Lounge at East Fourth and Neches streets. Runners can choose from a 5K or 10K route each day.

Because this is SXSW, after all, a live DJ will lead the pack, spinning beats to move your feet. (Free Run Happy T-shirts, too!)

And keep your eyes peeled for the Run Happy Tour pedicab. Snap a picture of it and share it via Instagram with the #runhappy tag for a chance to win a Spotify Premium subscription and head-to-toe Brooks gear.
