The Galloway Run Walk Run Method utilizes a run-walk-run method invented by Jeff Galloway, American Olympian, author, coach, avid runner and motivational speaker.

Philosophically, Jeff believes that we were all designed to run and walk, and he keeps finding ways to bring more people into the positive world of exercise.

Galloway Run Walk Run Method is open to anyone who is interested in fulfilling a lifetime goal: to run a marathon, half marathon, 10K, 5K, 10 miler or just get started. Pace groups are set up to ensure a comfortable and safe training pace for every ability. If you're not certain about whether to join, come with us for a free test run.

Registration for the 2017 Galloway training programs for the 2017 Pittsburgh Full and Half Marathon is now open!  Full marathon training will begin on Saturday, November 12, 2016, and the half marathon training will begin late January 2017.
