Brian Behrendt

Behrendt is a graduate of Iowa State University (BS, Marketing, 2003). He is passionate about running and everything outdoors – cycling (road, mountain, fatbiking, commuting), hiking, kayaking, camping, snowshoeing, and XC skiing. He and his wife share the same passion for the outdoors and Minnesota’s four seasons provide endless opportunities for outdoor fun. Next up for him, trail ultras.


Behrendt discovered Newton 5+ years ago while training for triathlons. He’s been hooked ever since, they are his #1 preferred shoe. He loves promoting the brand which supports his passion for running and further connects him with the running community. He also gets joy from connecting other runners, new or veteran, to Newton Running.


There’s a reason Minneapolis is ranked No. 1 on ‘America’s Top 10 Healthiest Cities’ list – they have the best park system in the country which basically provides endless outdoor opportunities for residents and visitors. Whether running the Chain of Lakes in Uptown, the trails along the Mississippi River, or going off-road at Afton State Park, one simply cannot go wrong.


Brian has traveled to nine countries (so far) and he has ran one international marathon (so far). Two items on his bucket list are running a marathon on every continent and completing the World Marathon Majors.
