Jeff is coming to Rochester!

Jeff is going to be in Rochester for the kickoff event on March 25th. This will be a great time to be able to meet with Jeff and learn more about him and his running program. We will also be taking a short run around Silver Lake starting at about 5:30 that evening, with the kickoff event following afterwards.

Our Target Marathon

The main marathon this is targeting is the Most Beautiful Urban Marathon in America - The Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon on Sunday, October 6, 2013. However, this training program could alternatively prepare you for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon (10/13/13), the Mankato Marathon (10/20/13) the Marine Corp Marathon (10/27/13), or even the ING New York City Marathon (11/3/13). If you are interested in a women's only race, Women Rock (8/31/13) in the Twin Cities is also an option.

Our Target Half Marathon

There are several Half Marathon options that will fit into this training plan to be run alone, or in conjunction in the plan. The first is the Med City Half Marathon (5/26/13), the Lady Speed Stick Half Marathon - Bloomington (6/16/13) (yes, men can run this event), the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon (6/22/13), the Red, White, and Boom TC Half Marathon (7/4/13), the Rochester Half Marathon (8/24/13), Women Rock Half (8/31/13), Mankato Half Marathon (10/20/13), and Monster Dash (10/26/13).

Why Train with Galloway?

Whether you are a beginning runner or a seasoned veteran, Jeff Galloway's run/walk/run method allows runners to stay injury free and recover. I put this into practice last year for the first time when running the Athens Classic Marathon and it changed my entire outlook for the race. While I did not set a personal best, I felt the best after this marathon and recovered much quicker than I have before in comparison to other marathons.

Is this group right for me?

The Jeff Galloway training approach is suitable forall levels and all ages! Join us for a weekly group run on Saturday or Sunday (first session is free) and experience great comraderie, effective training and lots of support. Bring a friend!

About Jeff Galloway's Training Programs

The Galloway Training Program is open to anyone who is interested in fulfilling a lifetime goal: to run a marathon, half marathon, 10K, 10 miler or just get started. The training group welcomes all levels, from beginners to Boston qualifiers. Pace groups are set up to ensure a comfortable and safe training pace for every ability. This low mileage run/walk program will prepare people for an incredible achievement. A high percentage of participants, including beginners, continue this lifestyle change after the completion of their goal.

This national training program was developed by and is still currently produced by Jeff Galloway and Phidippides Runners. Jeff has been involved with training programs in the U.S. since 1978. Due to the enormous growth in interest and commitment within the past 5 years, running has become a symbol of achievement, respect, and competence among North Americans who are becoming increasingly aware of the health benefits of regular exercise.

Jeff's unique low-mileage run-walk program makes it possible for almost anyone to experience the feeling of completing their goal. If a marathon is your goal and you can currently run/walk three miles, we'll get you to the start line in six months. And if you're a more experienced runner, we'll help you safely increase your speed and distance to run at your highest potential. If you're a beginner, we'll show you how to get started with a safe fitness program and maintain your fitness level. The simplicity and wisdom of the program reflect Jeff's motto: Run Injury Free. The weekly training schedule includes three days of running and three days of cross- training (non-running aerobic exercise like cycling, cross country skiing machines, or water running). The key to the training is the Saturday long run, when you'll be running with the a group at a comfortable pace that is appropriate for you. You'll have a group leader to help guide you, keep you motivated, and be sure you're having fun. And it works! The Galloway Program boasts a 98 percent success rate in more than 40 cities across the nation. What's more important is that we'll be supporting each other, having a great time, and sharing what is a truly life-changing experience. If you're not certain about whether to join, come with us for a free test run.
