Kick-off for our 4-month half marathon training program will be Saturday morning, September 27, at 6 am. Join us at the Glenridge Middle School track to learn about our run/walk/run method, ask any questions you might have, and get your Magic Mile timed (you can run it, walk it, or a combo of the two.) Also I will be distributing books, shirts, and Track Shack discount cards to those who have already registered. And we will have some running-related door prizes that all attendees have a chance to win!
MEET JEFF GALLOWAY!
We are lucky to be getting a visit from Jeff Galloway himself! He will be appearing at Track Shack on the evening of Thursday, October 2 at 6 pm, to explain how you can complete a half-marathon using his run/walk/run method! He will answer any questions you might have about our fall training program as well, sign books, pose for pictures, and share stories from his latest travels. He loves to meet and talk with runners, whether or not you are in one of his programs, and he always has some great stories to share, you don’t want to miss this chance to spend some time with him!

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.

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.
