Get set to make tracks with playlist

On your marks for Great Birmingham Run.

Struggle to run without music? Can’t decide between Guns N Roses and Kanye? Do not stress, The Morrisons Great Birmingham Run has the solution.

The team behind Birmingham’s famous half marathon has compiled its top 20 running songs, as voted by Great Runners, and created a special Spotify playlist to keep you motivated through your last few weeks of Great Run training.

The playlist features music for everyone, ranging across all genres, from the likes of Manic Street Preachers and Kenny Loggins to David Guetta and Kanye West, and also includes a trio of Birmingham bands, Editors, Spencer Davis Group and ELO.

David Hart, communications manager at The Great Run Company said: “Music is a key motivator when it comes to training and running the half marathon; however as most runners will know, the right playlist is essential to keep you in high spirits. We asked the people of Birmingham to suggest their top running tracks and compiled them into the ultimate running playlist.”

“If you choose to run without headphones, our own Bands On The Run will keep you motivated every step of the way.”
