On Sunday, October 25th in the cities of, LA, NY, London & Paris Beats (Beats by Dre) invited everyone to run with the WINNERS in an exclusive 5k run. It was the first global event with its own radio show broadcasting a runner's mix to 100 countries. Beats 1 reminded us that--runners do it in 20, joggers do it in 30, and walkers do it in 45--minutes we're guessing (?)
The Brooklyn, NY run began at a SECRET location at 2:00 pm. Participants ran the gamut from hipsters and socially conscious, not known for true hardcoreworkouts, to professional BMXer Nigel Sylvester, and NY DJ Daddy Dark to name a few.
DJ/Writer Daddy Dark Founder of the the Run Dem Crew noted, "Interesting developments in the running world as @beatsbydre took the classic 5K distance and gave it a little musical remix. 4 runs in 4 cities simultaneously with a global soundtrack courtesy of Beats Radio. Had a ton of fun on this run with the crew."
The HIT list of songs related to the run included: Eminem-Lose Yourself; M.O.P.-Ante Up (Robbing Hoods Theory); Jay-Z Public Service Announcement (Interlude); Missy Elliot-We Run This; DMX-Ruff Ryders Anthem; Eminem--Till I Collapse; Kanya West-Stronger; Survivor--Eye of the Tiger.
Celeb DJ Samantha Ronson whose image appears on the Beats 1 Run site did a special Runner's mix for the run. Registered received a free pair of Powerbeats Wireless Earphones and a custom performance T to set off their run!
