Hall of Famer and trainer to offer running and injury prevention tips at venues in Washington, DC and Virginia
QUANTICO, VA (May 25, 2016) - There's perhaps no better source for running tips than Olympian Jeff Galloway. His renowned Run-Walk-Run training method has opened the door to runners of all abilities, enabling them to successfully complete long distance events, including the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM).
The public is invited to join the MCM as it hosts Galloway, a member of the MCM Hall of Fame, in two running clinics available free of charge on June 1 and 2 in Washington, D.C. and Quantico, VA.
The first Galloway clinic begins at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 1 at the United States Navy Memorial, located at 701 Pennsylvania Avenue in Northwest D.C. The Navy Memorial can easily be accessed by Metro via the Archives/Navy Memorial/Penn Quarter station.
A second session featuring Galloway will be hosted the following day, Thursday, June 2, at 11 a.m. This clinic will be held at Breckinridge Hall at 2076 South Street on the Marine Corps University campus at Marine Corps Base Quantico, VA.
During both clinics, Galloway will provide tips for running and training for a variety of distances, while also discussing injury prevention techniques for a successful finish of the 41st MCM and MCM10K to be held this October in Arlington, VA and the nation's capital.
Galloway's Run-Walk-Run is well regarded throughout the running industry as his innovative training methods include all types of athletes -- from the competitor to the first-time marathoner. Also an inspirational speaker, Galloway is open to his audience through running presentations and on social media.
A 13-time MCM finisher, Galloway was inducted last October into the MCM Hall of Fame during the 40th celebration of "The People's Marathon."
