Run Wild Missoula and the Missoula Marathon enjoy a growing relationship with Jeff Galloway, nationally known author, speaker, and running coach. Galloway has developed a trademarked approach that he calls “run-walk-run.” That approach, which alternates between running segments and walk breaks, has enabled hundreds of thousands to train injury-free for events like the Missoula Marathon. Run Wild Missoula has sponsored Galloway marathon-half marathon training for three years; this year more than 150 participants are registered.
Jeff and his wife Barbara will be here for their third Missoula Marathon. The following are opportunities to meet Jeff over the weekend. All but the 3-hour Running School (see details below) are free and open to the general public.
