Jeff Galloway Intervals Pace Groups

Jeff Galloway Intervals Pace Groups

This year we will also have pacers using the Jeff Galloway Intervals. Galloway Program Directors and/or Group leaders who spend much of the year training runners to achieve their personal goals will be doing some of the GALLOWAY pacing. All of our pacers are experienced half marathoners with Personal Records quite a bit faster than the times they will be pacing.

All of the official Galloway pacers for The Maryland Half Marathon will carry a flag bearing the goal time and times for each mile. They also will be using Jeff Galloway’s recommended run/walk/run method and will take walk breaks according to Jeff’s personal instructions.

All of the Galloway pacers at The Maryland Half Marathon will be staying on pace for their projected finish times throughout the run. If you are following a different run/walk plan than the pacer with your time goal, just keep the pacer in sight and stick to your plan. If you find yourself faltering late in the race, tuck in with the pace group and let the energy of the pack carry you to the finish.

The following half-marathon GALLOWAY PACE groups will be available:

2:15 GOAL FINISH TIME (1:30 min run/30 sec walk)

2:30 GOAL FINISH TIME (1 min run/30 sec walk)

2:45 GOAL FINISH TIME (30 sec run/30 sec walk)
