Adidas is bringing back its popular ADIZERO: ROAD TO RECORDS event for the third time on 29 April 2023 at 11 pm PDT. The event, which made its debut in 2021, takes place at adidas headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany, and has already seen some of the world’s fastest athletes set new records.
The 2023 event promises to be just as exciting, with top athletes from around the world coming together to break new personal records. The line-up for the men’s and women’s 5km, 10km, and half marathon races has now been released, and all athletes will wear shoes from the Adidas ADIZERO range, including the new Adios Adizero Pro 3 and Adizero Takumi Sen 9.

Om Adidas Adizero Pro 3 och Takumi Sen 9
I have already mentioned the Adidas Adizero Pro 3 as one of the best Adidas running shoes for marathons and half marathons. Along with the Nike Vaporfly 3 and Nike Alphafly, this is the most commonly used racing shoe among the elite in marathon and half marathon races around the world.
The shoe has an excellent roll and offers a top-notch responsive run. It features ENERGYRODS 2.0 technology from heel to toe, which provides an energy return that you really feel in your stride. There is also a Lightstrike cushioning in the shoe that provides very good cushioning. It is one of the new age “super shoes” that are both light and at the same time maximally cushioned.
Adidas Takumi Sen 9 is a slightly less cushioned running shoe that is intended for distances up to half marathon. This is a distinctly competitive shoe that I owned while it still had Boost material in the midsole. Now it has LIGHTSTRIKE PRO foam in a thicker sole. You will also find half-length carbon fiber reinforced ENERGYRODS in the shoes.
Things have really moved on since I last raced in these shoes.
