The Runner's Playlist You Don't Have To Be Embarrassed About


So the resolutions are in place, the fitness apps are ready to roll, the equipment has been bought - and you're ready to go. But something's missing.

Yes - you need some banging tunes to get you up and out there when the weather's not-so-great, and you need the right playlist to keep you going when those energy reserves are starting to sag midway through. But one look at the charts shows a load of cheesy, formulaic nonsense when it comes to dance music. So what to do?

Do not fear: we have just the thing, with this 23 track, two and a quarter hour Spotify playlist of massive, quality high-energy tracks, virtually all from the last twelve months, to get you out there - and keep you out there.

Use the first track - Porter Robinson's epic Sea Of Voices - for your stretches and warm-ups, and then hit the road with the progressive house of Liberate, before branching into some minimal, electro and deep house, a touch of drum and bass and a dash of trance, served up as the perfect recipe for a quality workout.

What are you waiting for? Get this on your phone, get out there and try not to do too many dance moves along the way.
