Music for jogging - These 25 running songs push you right

You are looking for rousing music for jogging? Then wait a minute before you lace up your running shoes! Yes, there are those days when it's just hard to pick yourself up. But there are also songs that will get you through these phases and motivate you to run. Personally, I go for a run between 5 and 10 kilometers every other day in order to find an active balance to my office-heavy workday. I listen to some songs over and over again, because they are able to really drive me and push me to peak performance.

In this article I want to share with you my favorite 25 songs for running. I am sure that they will drive you too. Have fun!

Most of the songs in my personal running mix are from the hip-hop, rap and indie genres. Basically, however, my playlist is really colorful. Here are my five favorite songs for jogging with video (watch on YouTube), before I continue the list with bullet points below.

One of the vegan documentarieswhich I recommend to you in the linked post is The Game Changers. Tyrone Briggs created the soundtrack for the film and is definitely one of the artists who push me forward the most with their music while jogging. The entire album "Victorious The Soundtrack" is basically ideal as running music.

3. linkin park - in the end

The beats of Linkin Park were already always extremely good for jogging and always will be! It was hard for me to choose one song, but "In The End" is really the song that I hear most often from them while jogging.

Anyway, Fynn Kliemann was a real Source of inspiration for me - but his music has topped everything again. "One Minute" is by far not his only song, and it makes a great addition to any list of music to jog to!

Listen to music for jogging

I hope you like my personal running mix. I'm sure you already know many of the songs - but I'm sure there's also a "pearl" or two that will boost your running performance even more! And if you still feel like Making the run more sustainablethen try the new trend sport "Plogging". In doing so, you still free the environment from discarded plastic waste during the run.
