Christmas Running Songs

Once again for Christmas 2021 I invite runners for suggestions for suitable Christmas running songs with traditional titles changed a little, for example instead of Chris Rea Driving Home For Christmas, for runners that would be Running Home Christmas or Santa Clause is Coming to Town would be Santa Clause is Running to town, Mariah Carie All I want for Christmas is You could be All I want for Christmas is a pair of running shoes or Walking in the Air could be Running in the Air.

Merry Christmas everyone. 😊 πŸƒπŸΎπŸƒπŸΎπŸŽ„πŸŽ„πŸŽ„πŸ€ΆπŸ€ΆπŸ€ΆπŸ€Ά

I like that Alvor, Little Drummer Boy is a French Christmas song based on a boy who had a drum and played it before going into battle.

Run into Christmas 🀢(Elton John). πŸ˜ƒπŸŽ„. Oh Run all ye Faithful!

Greenthorn in reply to Frenc

Oh Run all ye Faithfull! That's as n excellent choice. I'm tempted to convert the whole hymn. How about "The Runner and the Ivy". (It will include the line, "the runner bears the crown!")

FrencGraduate in reply to Greenthorn

Oooh yes. I wonder if we’d get away with singing it like that at any carol services 😊.

AlMorr profile image
AlMorrGraduate in reply to Frenc

If ALL the people at that Carol service were runners they certainly could, but not otherwise. 😊 πŸ€ΆπŸŽ„

FrencGraduate in reply to AlMorr

I agree Al 😊. I usually go to the cathedral here for the morning Christmas service, and you get all sorts, from little old ladies to hungover dads. It’s very special, and I’m sure there will be runners in the congregation - but not everyone! πŸ˜ƒ

Step for run Frec, another Carol, Hark The Herald Angels Run, not sing.

I like that Cmoi, the 12 Days of Christmas reminds me that 2 years ago I set myself a task to run a 5K on the 5th day of Christmas which I ran but I wanted to run a 10K on the 10th day of Christmas, unfortunately it is the only run that I have never completed, I only managed to get to 5K, might try it again on the 3rd January 2022.

Mel and Kim rocking around the Xmas tree is running around the Xmas tree.

AlMorrGraduate in reply to Doris8

If you were running a 5K around the Christmas tree I wonder how many times you would have to run around it?? πŸ˜€ πŸŽ„πŸ€Ά

Doris8 profile image
Doris8Graduate in reply to AlMorr

I would get a wee bit dizzy in the living room the size I’ve got trying to run around the tree , better if I was in a hotel . πŸ˜€

AlMorr profile image
AlMorrGraduate in reply to Doris8

We would all get dizzy running around a Christmas tree πŸŽ„ 3 times let alone doing and running a 5K.

Some good contributions on here Al. How about The First 5k instead of The First Noel (it just happens to be on the radio at the moment )

AlMorr profile image
AlMorrGraduate in reply to Dexy5

Do you remember Dexy two years I (hate to use this word) failed to run a 10K on the tenth day of Christmas, which is the 3rd January, believe it or not UpTheStanley sympathed with me replying to my post saying even he has occasionally not completed a run he had intended to run, I didn't try a 10K on January 3rd this year but I have now run 20/10Ks and hope to run my 21st 10K on the 3rd January 2022 which is the 10th day of Christmas.I like that, the first 5k, lol, the Christmas Carol The First Noel they say if sung in full has 33 verses, a sub 20 minutes runner could run a 5K in the time a singer could sing that Carol in full.

The 12ks of Christmas

O Hole-y Tights

Baby It's Cold Outside (no change needed)

AlMorr profile image
AlMorrGraduate in reply to nowster

The 12K's of Christmas, my true love asked me to run a 1K on the first day of Christmas and every day another run on each day until a 12K run on the 12th day. Two years ago I tried to run a 10K on the 10th day of Christmas, unfortunately I only managed to get to 5K, hopefully next year I'll get that 10K run.

That's a brilliant idea, as a new runner that's a bit out of my reach for now but I've copied and pasted it and going to aim for next years challenge. Love it πŸ€—

How about Wonderful Christmas Run (aka Paul McCartney's Wonderful Christmastime)

AlMorr profile image
AlMorrGraduate in reply to Beatlesforever

Good one Beatlesforever, just heard from Handels Messiah 'For Unto us Child is Born', that could change to "For Unto us a πŸƒπŸΎ RUNNER is Born"

As I subtitled yesterday's evening run:

β™« Torches, torches, run with torches, All the way to Bethlehem... β™«

No changes needed!

πŸ‘ There is or was a Jerusalem Marathon, I am not sure if it still takes place because of political issues.

A challenge for some runners, why not run to the 12 Days of Christmas, 1K on 25th December 2021 which is the first day of Christmas and increase the distance each day to run 12K on the 12th day of Christmas which is the 5th of January 2022.
