London Marathon: Sound Inspiration


This weekend a number of the discerning gents of Elysium Magazine will be joining the hoards of you running the grueling London Marathon. Ever runner knows that the 26-mile stretch needs equal parts of motivation, dedication and inspiration – it can rarely be done without any music. Bring on the calibration between the beast in all things sport – adidas and one of the biggest names in the headphone industry – Monster.


adidas and Monster join forces again to unleash the adidas Sport by Monster high-performance headphones for athletes.
