From Brooks Running
SEATTLE – These two standout middle-distance runners - Garrett Heath and Erica Moore – complete the Brooks Beasts TC team and help position it for success this coming track season in events ranging from the 800m run through the 5000 meters. The team, now one year old, is three times its original size and full of depth and talent.
“The Beasts are now unimpaired, we are lock, stock and barrel,” said Brooks Beasts Head Coach Danny Mackey. “A big advantage to being on the Brooks Beasts is that we function like a team, so with a full roster the athletes can train together and use that synergy to achieve goals they could not do alone.”
Focusing on the longer end of the mid-distance spectrum, Heath, 28, most recently won the invitational 4K race at the Bupa Great Edinburgh Cross Country Race in a time of 11 minutes, 51 seconds. The 2013 USA Road Mile champion has a 1500 PR of 3:34.12, Mile PRs 3:53 (road) & 3:56.21 (track) and a 5K PR of 13:20.
“I’m excited to have a great team to train and chase the running dream with here in Seattle,” said Heath.
Moore, 25, joins the team with a bronze medal from the 2012 World Indoor Championships and a PR of 1:59.97 and an 800 meter national title from the 2012 USAS Indoor Championships.
“This group has all the facets necessary to produce successful athletes with the bonus of having the journey there be extremely enjoyable,” she said.
“Erica and Garrett were essential to making sure that we have athletes in the Mile, 1500m and 800m that can have immediate impact on the Global level,” said Mackey. “They are both proven, but still have untapped potential.”
The additions of Erica and Garrett, along with new teammate Nick Symmonds, highlight Brooks’ investment into competitive running and its unique vision for sponsored athletes where teamwork, culture and running performances are all celebrated.
