20,587 runners joined in common purpose
This year’s Volkswagen 23. Ljubljana Marathon on Sunday, October 28, brought together 20,587 runners from all over the world, who – in their desire to exceed their personal goals – beat the 10km, 21km or 42km distance. As much as 23 percent of them were running in the adidas running shoes, a producer that has been a diamond sponsor of the biggest event in our country since 2014.
adidas runners from Zagreb attended the Ljubljana marathon as a part of the international adidas Runners movement, connecting running enthusiasts from 50 countries worldwide. adidas Runners are led by experienced trainers, assisting the members in their training, nutrition, equipment and leisure planning, and motivate them to exceed their sports results. The captain of adidas Runners Zagreb Frane Boban, who attended the 21km run, said after crossing the finish line: “Our second participation in the Ljubljana marathon was a full success and an unforgettable experience. More than 80 runners overcame their personal records, and enjoy excellent atmosphere and organization. A smile on our faces and fun that lasted all throughout the weekend wasn’t stopped even by a bad weather forecast and the heavy rain. We will definitely come back to the Ljubljana marathon – with even better results.”
