Songs that are Perfect for Night Races



As we are gearing up for Rock n Roll Las Vegas ( which is a night race), we decided that we wanted to revamp our play list to add more "night" time songs. You know there are certain songs that just give you that Night time vibe? Since many runners are heading to Disney's Wine n Dine  this week ( which is also a night race), we thought maybe they would appreciate these suggestions too.

 So whether you are running Vegas, Wine n Dine, the new Surfin Santa night race, or any other night race, be sure to check out some of these tunes. You might just want to add a few to your play list.

1. We Run the Night - Pitbull and Havana Brown

2. Tonight is the Night - Outasight

3. Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO

4. White Walls - Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

5. Starships - Nicki Minaj

6. Dynamite - Taio Cruz

7. Counting Stars - One Republic

8. I've Got a Feeling - Black Eyed Peas ( This should probably be the first song on our playlist for a night race. It will hopefully set the tone for the race)

9. Wake Me Up - Avicii  ( Because we too just might be feeling our way through the darkness being guided by a beating heart)

10. Some Nights - FUN

11. Stay The Night- Zedd and Hayley Williams

12. Waiting For Tonight- Jennifer Lopez

13. We are Young - FUN

Good luck to everyone running Wine n Dine or any other upcoming Night Race!

What other "Night" songs would you add to our list?

  1. I love to run to Madonna's Ray of Light and I think it would fit in the night theme... like you are the ray of light running through the dark night. :)

  4. Starships used to be one of my favorite running songs! We Are Young would be the perfect song to end a night run too :)

  6. Definitely great suggestions! I don't have another night race on my radar for a while but I'm thinking I might do Wine & Dine next year so I'm sure it will come in helpful then if not before.

    1. I use to be like that too. I still have some songs on my playlist that I cant stand anymore but for some reason I cant seem to remove them. I think I have, but then they are still there!

  10. Any song that makes me want to party also makes me want to run... so I could say any of those songs make me wanna run at night ;) I think Timber - Ke$ha and Shake Señora - Pitbull are good because of the beat.. it's enough to motivate you late at night!
