About Galloway Training Programs
Getting you to the finish line injury-free!
"I totally know why you have so many people signed up..... It is the best, most sensible, enjoyable marathon training program in the world"
In each of our locations, pace groups (of usually 8-15) are set up according to current fitness level. A leader keeps the speed slow enough for all members, and enforces walk breaks from the beginning to the end.
Here's what you get when you're a member of the Galloway Training Program!

Galloway Coordinator: Patricia Van Bellegham
Hi, my name is Patty Van Belleghem and I have lived on the central coast for the last 20 years, employed at Cal Poly during that time. In 2005 while working full-time, raising a family and completing my Master’s Degree, I decided to attempt at least one marathon in my lifetime. Not having been an athlete in high school and having minimal running experience I went on line, searched and analyzed different training methods for first time marathoners. The Galloway method caught my eye and after reading reviews and reviewing the training schedule I decided to use the Galloway Method as it would fit into my hectic life and allow me to build up my running mileage at a reasonable pace. The Galloway Method allowed me to successfully complete my first marathon, Big Sur, and has inspired me to run several more marathons and half marathons. Running has now become an important part of my life and I have meet many wonderful new friends through the running community. Patricia can be reached via email at email@example.com
In order to participate in the marathon training, you must be able to run/walk 9 miles comfortably at the start of training.
