The Galloway NYC Running Club helps people of all ages and fitness levels achieve their fitness goals while having fun and remaining injury-free -- even if they have never run before. Most members participate in our marathon or half-marathon training programs, though many members simply run with us to train for races of shorter distances or just to maintain their fitness. Weekly mileage slowly increases from 2 to 26 miles over the training season to prepare for fall marathons (up to 14 miles for half-marathons), safely adding no more than 10% from week to week. The Galloway run-walk-run method is beneficial for new runners, older runners, heavy runners, and experienced runners recovering from injuries or managing chronic conditions... plus younger/competitive runners who want to enjoy running and have a speedier recovery after long runs. The program boasts a 99% success rate! Members receive a team tech shirt, Galloway Training book and end-of-season medal; enjoy multiple pace/interval groups and a variety of routes in the 5 boroughs, covering portions of the NYC Marathon course; aid stops at all runs over 13 miles plus the NYC Marathon; a subscription to Runner's World magazine, clinics on running techniques, gear, nutrition, and injury prevention with discounts from local running stores and other providers; weekly email and members-only website access; social events including happy hours, post-run breakfasts; discounts to various races like runDisney events; and an end-of-year award celebration where members share their race medals from the season.
