Official Press Release

MANILA, Philippines – adidas’ Dennis Kimetto ran the fastest marathon in history wearing adidas BOOST™ at the 2014 Berlin Marathon.  With a time of 2:02:57 Kimetto shattered the previous world record by an astounding 26 seconds wearing the super lightweight adizero Adios BOOST.

 “Dennis’ world record breaking performance while wearing adidas BOOST demonstrates the result of elite athletes using industry leading innovation to achieve unprecedented feats,” said Adrian Leek General Manager of adidas Running. “We continue to push boundaries by working closely with our athletes to develop the best products running has to offer.”

 adidas BOOST was also on the feet of second place men’s finisher Emmanuel Muthai who joined Kimetto in breaking the previous world record. The top two female finishers Tirfi Tsegaye and Fayse Tadese were also wearing Adios BOOST as they triumphantly crossed the finish line in Berlin to provide adidas with a dominating presence at the podium.

 The results in Berlin contribute to a long line of success for Adios BOOST following its introduction last year including former world record holder Wilson Kipsang running a course record at the 2014 Virgin Money London Marathon.
