Six songs to help you reach the London Marathon finish line

Written by Jen Degnan / April 26, 2019

One of the UK’s most exciting events is happening on Sunday – The London Marathon. If you’re taking on this monumental task, power to you! Here are some songs to add to your running playlist, that’ll help keep you motivated until that final step over the finish line.

Fleetwood Mac – Don’t Stop


We suggest beginning with something positive and upbeat to start you off on the right foot. Tweak the chorus, squeeze in an extra syllable and you get ‘Don’t stop thinking about the finish line’ – just 26 miles to go!

The Mac are back to perform at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 16th and Tuesday 18th June.

 Christina Aguilera – Fighter

Starting to feel a stitch? Look to pop powerhouse Christina Aguilera for inspiration to pull through it. This sassy early noughties classic will ‘make you work a little bit harder’ and get back in the game. You got this!

Christina is touring the UK in November for the first time in 13 years!

Bon Jovi – Livin’ On A Prayer

Congratulations! You’ve made it to the halfway point. There’s only one motivational song for it (oh we’re halfway there…woah oh, livin’ on a prayer!).
