RunPip is a community for contributors to share personally curated playlists and the reasons behind their choices. Discover music or find new love for an old favourite thanks to a personal commentary by the creator, or upload your own playlist and tell your stories.

Playlists must be short (5-20 songs)
Playlists must have accompanying notes on song choices

Playlist ideas:
Monthly discoveries
End of year top 10 discoveries
Pride in Music – music that promotes inclusivity and gives those from an LGBTQ+ a platform to celebrate music that inspires them
Environment – music that promotes action on climate change and what we should be doing to help

Time Capsule – get your old iPod / MP3 player and find your favourite tracks from it and describe why they are your favourite

Music for Dementia
Favourite movie/TV soundtracks and why

Monthly prize: once the end of the month has passed, we will open an online poll for the first 10 days of the following month. It will then be up to the users of RunPip and the contributors to share this and get votes for their favourite playlist released the previous month. Whichever submission gets the most votes wins. The prize will either be a voucher for live music or a contribution to a charity as chosen by the person who submitted the winning playlist.

We hope you enjoy the RunPip concept and get involved!
