The Ultimate Ruckus Pump Up Playlist

After a muddy, physically challenging and super successful Ruckus Kansas City on Saturday, we received some great feedback from many of our RuckStars.  But one of the comments we received was quite unexpected—the impact that our music made on the Ruckus community before, during and after the Ruckus obstacle course run.
Before each Ruckus event, we put together a playlist of songs that we think our RuckStars need in order to stay pumped up before the race, motivated during the race and celebratory after the race.  Then, we blast it on our giant Ruckus speakers for the entire community to hear.

It has been proven time and time again that good music has a positive effect on exercise.  Music acts as a mood enhancer, helps with synchronization and assists with overall bodily coordination.  That’s why we created the ultimate playlist for our Ruckus attendees—so that we could help them achieve all of their Ruckus goals!
