In the fall of 2016, 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 in any of the 100+ countries where Beats 1 Radio is available to stream, to be able to run at a location of their choice.
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.
