At Men’s Running, we’re divided about the subject of running to music (one of us does, one of us doesn’t – ever!). But there’s no doubt that having the right playlist can really help you through those tough race-day moments. With that in mind, we kick of a new Friday feature – The Runner’s Playlist – with MR’s editor’s 7-song choice for his Saturday parkrun outing this weekend. Send us your Playlist suggestions to

1) The Stone Roses – Fool’s Gold

2) Royal Blood – Little Monster

3) Radiohead – My Iron Lung

4) New Order – Blue Monday

5) Alt-J – Every Other Freckle

6) Jack White – Three Women

7) The Horrors – Sea Within a Sea
