Amber Morrison and Courtney Olsen join the Saucony Hurricanes


It is with pride that we announce that two of our athletes have been chosen as Saucony Hurricanes in 2016. This will be Amber Morrison’s second year with Saucony, and Courtney Olsen’s first. The Saucony Hurricane program was created to support (50) high level, competitive athletes who aim to inspire through their performances, focusing specifically on road running.

“As a new Hurricane in 2015 I had a lot of support. The program is a little different than others in that you work closely with your area shadow rep. It gives you the opportunity to build a great relationship and have a more intimate point of contact. The greatest part of being a Hurricane were the connections I made with other runners. The other NW regional Athlete, Marci Gage, and I became great friends. She actually introduced me to her coach whom I am now running under. I go so much out of this program in 2015 I can’t wait to see what 2016 holds. We have a new Rep as of late Fall, Ashley Burrett, who is amazing. I look forward to working with her more this coming year.” – Amber Morrison

“After college at WWU, I assisted with their cross country and track and field programs and was able to connect with the Brooks ID Coach program. It was my first taste of supplemental aid in the pursuit of post-collegiate running. In the course of a year I PR’d in the 5k to the marathon and was serious about finding someone who could be serious about me. I’m extremely thankful to begin this relationship with Saucony. I think that sometimes, when all you’re met with is ‘no,’ it’s easy to question your ability, but on the other side of it, you end up resiliently passionate & develop upon a raw sort of yourself that can hold up when you’re unsupported, which tends to be more often than not. I’m in the exact place I want to be, and hope to thank Saucony by kicking some major a$$ this year.” – Courtney Olsen
