17 Top Running Songs Let Us DJ Your Next Workout

Congratulations, you’ve found the playlist for your next run!

Music junkies and pro athletes alike know that the right music can make or break a workout. Studies show that listening to sick tunes can improve endurance by a whole 15% and distract from the pain. You’re still getting those gains, but you’ll be so busy singing along to Rihanna that you won’t notice your muscles aching. A recent Stanford study found that music can promote concentration – slower music will lead to slower movements while faster music will inspire faster movements. Faster movements = more calories burned.

It doesn’t matter what skill level you’re running at, a good playlist can help you reach an even higher level of awesome. Instead of scrolling through your over-used workout playlist, we’ve hand-picked a list of (what we think are) the best songs for running. We guarantee they’ll get you going – and keep you going – through your toughest run. We’ll take you through the songs and, if you’re ready to hit the pavement right now, scroll to the bottom to access the playlist on Spotify!
