Welcome to the Galloway Lakeland Marathon Training Program. We train in Lakeland, FL and offer programs for runners of all abilities throughout Polk and Hillsborough counties in central Florida. The Galloway Training Program is open to anyone who is interested in fulfilling a lifetime goal: to run a marathon, half marathon, 10 miler, 10K 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. If you’re a beginner, we’ll show you how to get started with a safe fitness program and maintain your fitness level. If you are a more experienced runner, we’ll help you safely increase your speed and distance to run at your highest potential. The simplicity and wisdom of the program reflect Jeff’s motto: “Run Injury Free.”

This national training program, and the run-walk-run method, 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. Jeff Galloway represented the United States at the 1972 Olympics in the 10,000 meter and as a marathon alternate.

Please see our Training Programs page for a description of each program. Email the Program Coordinator gallowaylakelandpd@gmail.com with any additional questions you may have about running using the low injury, low mileage Jeff Galloway run-walk-run method.
