Summer Running Playlist: 15 Songs to Rock on Your Run

Amp up your summer runs with these workout-worthy tunes


Although you should aim to run some of your workouts without plugging in your earbuds, science does say that music can help you to run faster.

So, if you enjoy rocking out while you run, you should most certainly bring some tunes along for some of your workouts—especially the ones where you might need an extra boost of motivation.

Arguably, there’s nothing better than a set of feel-good songs that can help amp up the enjoyment of your summertime runs. Everyone else is all, Oh, summer’s almost over, I can’t believe it went by so fast. But we don’t see it that way. We’re right in the heart of the season; there’s still plenty of summer (and running) to be enjoyed.

Whether you’re training for a marathon or just running recreationally, get excited for your next run with these workout-worthy summertime tunes!
