Best Running Music: 180 bpm songs

Post image for Best Running Music: 180 bpm songs

by John on January 3, 2009

Songs that are between 175 and 189 bpm. Some of these songs are not on any of our “best running music playlists” because they do not meet one or two of the following criteria: 1) about running, 2) inspirational, and/or 3) fun and with a great beat. BUT, there is still some killer music here and if you are looking to add to your running or fitness playlist…enjoy!

See Bold Pace Music home page for over 70 hrs of additional songs.

I’m so happy to find some GOOD 180BPM-music. The athletic community of the world seam to have the worst taste in music. Here’s an exeption. Thanks!
