The Best Half Marathon Playlist Ever


Best Half Marathon Playlist

We’ve put this playlist together in anticipation of our first half marathon which we are running tomorrow, so we thought we’d share the tracks with you. Now “The Best Half Marathon Playlist Ever” is a big claim but we think we’ve nailed it. Don’t worry they are all “power songs” sure to keep you going through the half marathon or whatever long run you are doing. We’ve included 38 songs which will keep you rocking to the beats for 2 hours and 18 minutes, plenty of time to finish that race. They are a real mix of genres but mostly chart awesomeness and we’ve thrown it back a bit with some of them too! For any fellow half marathoners out there, good luck! And remember what defines you as a runner isn’t how fast you run or how many miles you do, what defines you is the decision to get out the door and do it.

You can listen on Spotify below.

  1. Wow, this seems like a great list of songs to have especially when you’re going to run a marathon. It’s always good to have upbeat music to lift the mood, especially when working out.

    You said that all of the songs will cover over 2 hours of playtime, which will be enough for the race. I was just wondering how far will a half marathon be? I don’t know much about marathons and would love to learn more.


    1. Hey Farhan,

      Thanks for commenting. I’m so pleased you enjoyed the playlist and think it would be great to work out to.

      So a half marathon is 13.1 miles, it certainly is a challenge but definitely worth it. If you are thinking about giving it a go, you should!

      All the best,


  2. Hi there, thank you for this playlist.
    I found that this list of songs is balanced in which you got enough number of upbeat songs with pretty god amount of ‘slow’ track songs too, some of them is also inspirational that suit the marathon playlist.

    However, if I would add to the playlist, I will put Hall Of Fame from the script in it, the song is my must have song in any inspirational-themed playlist

    1. Hi A Habil,

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. I’m really pleased you like the playlist and think your suggestion would make a great addition!!

      All the best,
