National Running Day is celebrated on the first Wednesday in June. It is a day when runners everywhere declare their passion for running.
Run songs are also great to play during marathons, or even charity walks as many will still run.
The word run is also used in the English language in scenarios such as running into something.
What a great way to celebrate National Running Day than a list of the Top 10 Run Songs.
Our run songs are special in that each song has the word run in the song title – except for one which is titled “Pumped Up Kicks” – which aptly describes running.
