12 Great Running Spotify Playlists to Suit Every Genre

12 Great Running Spotify Playlists to Suit Every Genre

Many of us enjoy having some music on as it can make our run more enjoyable. But find the right music or playlist can be a challenge at times. Having the ‘wrong’ music on and it can ruin our run. True, some might enjoy classical music, especially when going on a long run, but most might prefer something of a quicker tempo.

Perhaps you have a few favourite albums and you play the songs in them when running. Playing music from our favourite albums is great until your not-so-favourite piece comes on. Perhaps we want something with a faster tempo but a sad ballad comes on instead. Yeah, we can certainly skip it. But how great it will be if we just run mindlessly with music playlist of a particular genre!

These days when we mention a music playlist we almost certainly think of Spotify. Besides Spotify, there are numerous other music streaming platforms to choose from. Regardless which streaming platform you prefer, having a great playlist can help you pace your run and also help you to run longer.
