Blue Mtn Beach, FL

Jeff Galloway’s Weekend Running Camp / Running Retreat in Blue Mountain, FL, a small settlement about 20 minutes east of Destin. Our property is about a three-minute jog from the beach and a three-minute jog to a system of wonderful trails.

There is a swimming pool on the property for relaxing and cooling off after a run/walk (or instead of a run/walk). Enjoy the beach, running/walking on an extensive trail system and the usually great weather! Or take Jeff’s cross-training tool EliptiGo for a spin on the local trails!

Magic Mile Testimonials
My 6:34 magic mile time predicts my 10k (46:34) and 13.1 (1:42:54) PRs exactly. It provides realistic goals, provided you do the training.
