Top 100 Running Songs – Beyond The Medal

Our Top 100 Running Songs


In 2014 I decided to run my first full put a call out to friends.....100 friends gave me a song each, pretty awesome hey?!  Anyway, I thought I would list them for you....It's a long story, but I never got to listen to them on the marathon (iPod tech issues) but made a playlist...Not all of them will be to your taste, maybe none of them will be....but if like me you need a bit of music to motivate you on a long run, I hope this gives you some inspiration.
