The Official Training Program of the Raleigh City of Oaks Marathon and UNC Rex Healthcare Half Marathon is the Raleigh-based Jeff Galloway Training Program. The Galloway Training Program is open to anyone interested in fulfilling a lifetime goal: to run a marathon, half marathon, 10 miler, 10K or to just get started.

The training group welcomes all levels, from beginners to Boston Marathon qualifiers. Pace groups are set up to ensure a comfortable and safe training pace for every ability. This low-mileage run/walk program prepares people for an incredible achievement. A high percentage of participants, including beginners, continue this lifestyle change after the completion of their goal in a dynamic and fun way, either training to complete a half or full marathon for the first time or to improve personal marathon/half marathon times.

Under the direction of Ron Wahula and his staff of seasoned group leaders, the Galloway injury-free training principles have been used successfully by hundreds of thousands of runners and walkers of all abilities, including beginners. The Raleigh Galloway Training Group starts in May. For details,
