We train using the trademarked run/walk/run method developed and perfected by Jeff Galloway who has coached over 200,000 runners.
Our group has been in Lakeland since 2006. We train year round for half marathons (13.1 miles) and marathons (26.2 miles) across Florida and the USA.

About Jeff Galloway's Training Programs
The Galloway Training Program is open to adults who are 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 optional 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.
