Get Inspired For Your Entire Training Season… In One Evening! FREE

Are you part of a Minneapolis Running Group? Are you kicking off your half marathon or marathon training season soon? Are you a beginner runner in the Twin Cities? Well, you don’t want to miss this FREE opportunity!

Olympian Jeff Galloway is coming one day only for the Official Launch of the NEW Minneapolis/St. Paul Jeff Galloway Running Groups!

Imagine you’re running your very first half marathon.

You’ve arrived at your first race expo excited but nervous … in less than 24 hours, you’ll be approaching the starting line. With every step toward the table to receive your race bib, your heartbeat quickens like it’s already race day.

Then something catches your side vision and you realize something greater. For the first time in your life you’re in the same room with an Olympian. Jeff Galloway, one of the nation’s top leaders in running is at the expo giving advice.

You decide you have to meet him and though you don’t say much because you’re so nervous, you’re still affected by his energy; his motivational force of positivity.

Just standing next to him for those precious moments you realize that you can run this half marathon race. You buy his book and on the inside cover he writes just for you, “Stay positive!” which are the two words that will drive you to the race’s starting line.

This was my first experience meeting Jeff Galloway and now it’s your turn.

You have to meet Jeff Galloway

Here’s your chance to experience inspiration that will carry you through your running journey. Jeff is an Olympian, a respected leader, and creator of the Run/Walk/Run™ method of injury free running. But Jeff is also one of the most positive and motivating people you will ever meet. He will kickstart the motivation you need for your training season.

Join the excitement

Come on out because a Jeff Galloway appearance in Minneapolis is rare. Don’t miss out on your opportunity.

Jeff Galloway will be here for one day only for a FREE event. Jeff will meet our training group members and the Minneapolis/St. Paul running community. Here’s your chance to learn about his injury free running philosophy and to get your running questions answered.

Do you have a nagging running injury that just won’t go away? Calf Cramps, sore arches, tight hamstrings? Well, Jeff will be on hand with instant solutions to your running challenges.

Olympian Jeff Galloway was a member of the 1972 U.S. Olympic Team in the 10k distance. He is most notably recognized as the national leader in injury free running. For more than 30 years, Galloway’s Run/Walk/Run™ method has inspired and motivated thousands of runners to run for a lifetime. With a high rate of injury free success, Jeff Galloway’s training programs enable many runners to cross finish lines with personal best times.
