If you – like me – use music as your secret performance enchasing drug when running then this article is what you have been looking for. The best running playlists in 2017 are two playlists that I’ve wanted for too long that I finally decided to create them. I hope you will enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
Because let’s be honest, shall we: we all have those days when we’d rather stay in bed instead of venturing out into the cold and dark morning. That period of the year is fast approaching. January is when you might most need some motivation to get you into your running shoes. You can be proactive and refresh your playlist with these songs that were recommended by top athletes such a Michael Phelps, Sarah Haskins etc. completed with our own tested favourites. In low season, us guides in GO! Running Tours squeeze runs in on our own, and here these tunes are currently what’s being played. If you are instead looking for a running buddy you can request one here for a private run in Copenhagen.
Both playlists below are approximately 2 hours long but you can go crazy and even combine them for one ridiculously long playlist. We will occasionally update them with new songs so feel free to send us your favourite pump up jams. Songs that help you beating the wall during your marathon or gets you in your running gear on a super early morning. Don’t forget to let us know which songs got stuck on repeat on your playlist.
