About Jeff Galloway’s Program:
The Metro Walkers of Atlanta is a walkers’ ONLY Jeff Galloway training program. We have been walking consistently as a group since September of 2007. Our group focuses on walking as a means of improving overall fitness. We meet every Saturday morning in the metro-Atlanta area. We have three training groups – beginner, intermediate and advanced. While several group members train for half-marathons year round and other group members progress to the Galloway run/walk programs, the majority of our members strive to improve health through consistent walking. Each year we have two sessions – Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. During the Spring/Summer Session (February to August) we primarily train towards the Peachtree 10k which is held every year on the 4th of July in Atlanta. Our Fall/Winter Session runs from September to mid-February. During this session, we primarily train towards the National Breast Cancer Half Marathon with Donna held every year around the second week of February in Jacksonville, Florida. We would love to have you but, if you're not certain about whether to join, email us at MetroWalkAtlanta@gmail.com.
