adidas (nearly fully) sweeps the 2024 London Marathon podium!


Wow!

The 2024 London Marathon was run yesterday (sure, identical week because the Boston Marathon) and it got here with a World Document!

It was a “ladies’s solely” World Document, which implies a report obtained in a race with out male pacemakers.

The “conventional” ladies World Document belongs to Tigst Assefa with a time of two:11:53 – so roughly 4 minutes sooner.

The male race was gained by Alexander Munyao in a time of two:04:01.


5 out of 6 podiums locations had been taken by adidas’ athletes

In some of the necessary marathons of the 12 months, probably the most well-liked in Europe, the rostrum was nearly fully cleaned by adidas’ athletes.

Apart from Kenesisa Bekele, who run in a pair of Anta footwear, 4 of the 6 high spots had been claimed by runners carrying adidas newest marathon racer: the Adios Professional Evo 1; the $500 shoe that apparently can solely be worn for one race earlier than shedding its traits.

One other adidas claims place 3 within the ladies’s race, and it’s adidas earlier high marathon racer, the Adios Professional 3 which was launched in 2022.

The place was Nike in all this? It’s such a brand new feeling not seeing any of the Oregon model’s footwear on the rostrum.

Firstly of the week in Boston, we noticed the Adidas Professional Evo 1 win the lads’s race, with the Nike Alphafly 3 in second place and the adidas Adios Professional 3 in third. Within the ladies’s race, a brand new race prototype from On gained the race, with Beneath Armour and Puma claiming the second and third place respectively.

As typical the query is similar: are the remainder of the supershoes catching up with Nike (who used to dominate the podiums just some years in the past), or just different manufacturers are more and more signing extra aggressive runners of their roster?

What do you assume? What shoe would you put on to beat your PR this 12 months?
