About This Project

In the summer of 2015, the Beats by Dre team presented Now and Zen with an unprecedented idea.

To support the launch of Apple Music, which features the 24/7 always-on Beats 1 radio station, Beats wanted to bring together thousands of fans for a first-ever global 5K run event powered by Beats 1.

We teamed up with Beats to create a run that took place simultaneously in four cities – LA, NYC, London, and Paris – as well as a virtual run for people to run at a location of their choice in any of the 100+ countries where Beats 1 Radio is available to stream.

People across the globe, spanning multiple time zones, connected through the medium of music, moving in sync to a runner’s playlist specially curated by world-renowned DJ Samantha Ronson.
