No run is complete without music in your ears to nudge you forward to the finishing line. The Music Run is back this year with louder and more heart-thumping beats on 23 April 2016 at Sentosa. Runners can ditch the headphones and run to the 120 concert speakers dotted along the 5k run. Designed specially for this year’s run, each 1k zone along the running course will pump 150,000 watts of music known as ‘The Sound Track’ with different music genre for different music zones - rock, pop, old school, hip hop and dance.

For a start, the music experience starts from the moment runners sign up for The Music Run, the opportunity to pick the music they want to listen to during run by voting online for their favourite hits at on The Music Run’s digital music partner, Spotify®. The most popular songs with the most number of votes will make it to The Music Run official soundtrack.

While most of the fun runs originate from the US, The music run started in Asia in 2014 and expanded throughout the region before crossing over to Europe and the US. This phenomenal music and fitness wave has won over many fans worldwide from Los Angelos to Bangkok, Hamburg to Singapore. Making it the one of the fastest-growing fun run events globally, from just 4 races in 4 countries with 35,000 runners two years ago, The Music Run is set to hit 40 cities in 18 countries and over 350,000 runners this year.
