Boost Your Run: A website for runners

Adidas has teamed up with Spotify for tailored training playlists.

Adidas has teamed up with Spotify for tailored training playlists.

A new website now creates a tracklist based on the route runners take, their taste in music, and how much they want to 'feel the burn'.

Now runners can visit a special website and create a tracklist based on the route they’re taking, their taste in music and just how much they want to feel the burn.

The Boost Your Run site is simple to use, offering a selection of well-known existing running routes to choose from, based on your location, and the playlist is created by entering your ultimate running song.

All you need to get started is a Spotify account. The created playlist will show up in it marked as #boostyourrun: then it’s just a matter of saving it for later use.

Unfortunately, the created playlist, which can be saved, won’t reflect the relief of the road or track in question – it’s more about motivation, staying upbeat and keeping a rhythm.

However, there is one cool feature. Currently a web portal, it will also be coming to Adidas’s Smart Run smartwatch before the end of the year.

The playlist will still be created in the same way but the tracks will be accessible via Spotify offline playback on the watch, meaning that there’ll be no need to take your phone on your run to listen to music. – AFP Relaxnews
