Free Jeff Galloway

He’s an Olympian. A Marathon-training guru. The Run-Walk expert and he’s going to share everything he knows about training for the MCM at a free workshop on Wednesday, May 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the nation’s capital, hosted by MedStar Sports Medicine, the proud Sports Medicine Partner of the MCM. The program will be held at the new MedStar Health Orthopaedic and Sports Center at Lafayette Centre, Building 1, 1120 20th Street NW, Washington, DC 20036. You want to see this amazing complex.

Galloway will also host a clinic earlier in the day on May 3 at noon on Marine Corps Base Quantico at Little Hall.

No advance registration required. No admission fee. It’s a great opportunity to hear from one of the most accomplished marathon training experts. Want to train for and run a marathon while avoiding injury? Then Jeff’s the guy.
