Top 3-Day Training Songs, According to YOU!

Let’s get moving and grooving, 3-Dayers! Music is a large part of our 3-Day experience, from the inspiring tunes you walk out to after the Opening Ceremony, to a playlist of upbeat classics welcoming you to camp every night to our all-event dance party at the end of the Closing Ceremony. We love a good tune!

Music can be a great training partner, too. That’s why we tapped our 3-Day community for their favorite songs to walk to. Let these recommendations fuel your next training walk, or just get you dancing today!

Jen L. from Facebook loves “Cupid’s Shuffle, The Wobble, and We are Family” when she needs to get moving.

@HeflinBelinda from Twitter recommends Carrie Underwood’s “The Champion” and Rascal Flatts “Yours If You Want It.”

Karen S. prefers “Geronimo,” “Honey I’m Good,” “I Gotta Feeling,” and “Fire and Flood.” She says, “I would dance (as much as I dance) to any of these. 😂”

Coach Liz trains to old time funky 70’s stuff or Motown!

Laura G. from Facebook likes happy tunes like “Walking on Sunshine” and “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go!”

Linda Z. fittingly says “I Would Walk 500 Miles” is one of her favorites, plus anything by Meghan Trainor!

Debbie S. says, “I don’t necessarily have favorite tunes, but I have an iPod with thousands of songs. Plus, singing and walking go hand in hand! I love 70’s music! But then again, I’m 61 years old so that makes sense! 😊”

Coach Jennifer loves anything from the 80’s like anything from The Go Gos, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and “I Got You” by Split Enz

And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

You raise me up, to more than I can be

And I’m clinging to the promise                                                                                                 You’re not through with me yet
so if all of these trials bring me closer to you
Then I will go through the fire

Everyday things but I
Can’t be one of them

We are a different kind
We can do anything

Sixty miles is a long way to walk, no matter how much training you do, so it’s always better to start as early as possible! Working out in the winter, however, can be a struggle, thanks to shorter daylight hours and frigid temperatures. If you’re working on a New Year’s fitness resolution, or want to get a head start on your 2017 3-Day® preparation, you’ll need a motivating playlist to get you up and out into the cold. We’ve pulled some of our favorite songs from 3-Days past, and added a few new favorites, to create a group of work out songs that will get your feet moving!

Did we miss any of your favorites? Leave a reply in the comments and we might add it to one of our upcoming playlists!
