The Galloway Method
The Galloway training method, designed by Olympian and long-time marathoner Jeff Galloway, is a unique run/walk/run® style of training that minimizes injuries and enables participants to achieve their goal of completing a marathon or a half-marathon. The Mission statement for Galloway is to help people improve their lives through running. The run/walk/run method enables participants to do so while having fun. Track Shack's Orlando Galloway Training Program provides marathon and half marathon training for runners of all levels: from beginners to Boston qualifiers. Pace groups are set up to ensure a comfortable and safe training pace for the long mileage runs. This run/walk/run® program prepares participants for an incredible achievement.
