Question: Can anyone finish a marathon?
Answer: I’ve heard from well over ten thousand runners, including many in their 60’s and 70’s, who take their first running steps in our Galloway program and finish a marathon within 9 months. Those who could not run around the block have used the Galloway program to finish with strength without injury. Almost anyone can finish a marathon if they 1) go slowly enough on the long runs, 2) gradually build the distance of the long one close to 26 miles, and 3) use the correct run-walk-run ratio, according to my experience.
Jeff Galloway will turn 70 years old this month and plans to run his 200th marathon on his birthday, July 12 at the Missoula Marathon in Montana.
