Study: Listening to Drake Significantly Slows Down Runners

December 16, 2021

According to a study conducted by Pour Moi, a British fashion retailer, listening to Drake during a run is not going to set you up for a personal best.

As part of a promotion for the shop’s new activewear, Pour Moi rounded up a number of runners and had them repeat the same three-mile run over and over again over a trial period, each time to the tunes of a different artist. Drake added nearly two minutes of additional time to each run, equivalent to about 15 minutes of extra time on the roads on a marathon run. Inside Hook
