Songs to cross the finish line to?

Our first event of the year, the Good Fri Tri is taking place in April. It's a very popular event with first - time triathletes, and we are looking to compile a motivational CD to be played as competitors approach the finish. Can you suggest any good songs that help to motivate you??

Hannah,

  • Great post & a great idea

    For me - a recent tune that REALLY gets me going

    Rizzlekicks - down with the trumpets

    Don't care for the video but when I'm running for some reason this chorus really motivates me

    Right here, right now - Fatboy Slim, first minute is ideal pre-start remainder good tempo, various mixes that are at the full on pace. What surprised that an old fart has heard of something since the Beatles?

    Bach did a few jolly numbers with his Brandenburg concertos,and his Toccato in D minor is most memorable,
    Holsts' Mars from the planet suite would be a good one to set the tone
    Although Barkers Adaggio for strings will send the odd shiver down the spine( I believe there is a more modern version).

    But it would seem that from the previous answers that some of these youngsters who partake in this triathlon activity seem to think that ''Popular Music'' will be better,so could one suggest
    Van Halens' Jump or
    Def Leppards' Animal
  • Thanks very much, hopefully some of these will feature at our event!
