Access the Runner's Playlist on May 4


For many distance runners, going for a run is practically incomplete without a pace-setting arsenal of music.

Z96.5 Kalamazoo’s Alternative will be creating a Kalamazoo Marathon Runner’s playlist that the station will play during the Kalamazoo Marathon. Spectators can access the playlist on air or online at z965fm.com.

Runners will be able to access the playlist by downloading Z96.5 The App on the station’s website, iTunes or the Google Play Store.

The Kalamazoo Marathon Runner’s Playlist will feature adrenaline-raising songs from bands like Fitz and the Tantrums, AWOLNATION, MGMT, Imagine Dragons and many more.

Most runners have a specific song that motivates them to go the extra mile. Z96.5 will be taking requests leading up to the marathon for the Kalamazoo Marathon Runner’s Playlist. Runners, spectators or anyone who wants to hear a song that is motivational, adrenaline raising or otherwise can text the word RUN along with a request to 80373. Those songs will be added to the playlist to help push runners past the finish line.

Text MARATHON to 80373 to have wall-to-wall coverage of the 2014 Kalamazoo Marathon sent to your phone.
