Top Runner’s Playlist for 2016


2016 brought us some really good tunes. Throughout the year I added over 1000 songs to my running playlist. Below is the list of my favorite tunes in a simple to follow playlist. This playlist includes warm-up, run and a cool down mix - perfect for any run. Enjoy!

Warm Up

Don't Let Me Down: The Chainsmokers featuring. Daya - 160 beats per min.

Cheap Thrills - Sia featuring Sean Paul - 180 beats per min

Don't Let Me Down get's you going with a smooth build up and halfway through the song you will catch yourself singing along (hopefully I am not the only one :)).  Cheap Thrills has the ability for you to focus on the music and the beat and completely block out the the sound of your breathing and shoes pounding the pavement.

The Run

Closer: The Chainsmokers featuring. Halsey - 95 beats per min.

The Greatist - Sia featuring Kendrick Lamar - 96 beats per min

Starving - Hailee Steinfeld and Grey featuring Zedd - 100 beats per minute

Kiss the Sky - Jason Derulo - 110 beats per minute

The Life - Fifth Harmony - 104 beats per minute

One Dance - Drake featuring Wizkid and Kyla - 104 beats per minute

24K Magic - Bruno Mars - 107 beats per minute

Can't Stop the Feeling - Justin Timberlake - 113 beats per minute

Green Light - Pitbull featuring Flo Rida and Lunchmoney Lewis - 128 beats per minute

This Girl - Kungs & Cookin on 3 Burners - 122 beats per minute

My Way - Calvin Harris - 124 beats per minute

Me Too - Meghan Trainer - 124 beats per minute

Get Up - Rehab & Ciara - 129 beats per minute

A great combination of songs you know the lyrics to and some that have some really great beats.

Cool Down

This is What You Came For - Calvin Harris featuring. Rihanna - 124 beats per min.

The cool down of your run lowers your heart rate in a safe manner with this jam.
