Local Half Marathon Training Programs Launch

With the welcome return of the Palm Beaches Marathon, our area is fortunate to have several structured programs that begin shortly.

Galloway Palm Beach

The very well-honed walk/run method begun by US Olympian Jeff Galloway begins training for the Palm Beaches Half Marathon this Saturday, August 26th. The group, led by experienced Galloway-certified trainer Lisa Reiss, will meet at Dunkin Donuts (803 Donald Ross Rd, Juno Beach, FL 33408) at 6 am Saturday morning. Please arrive a few minutes earlier to meet the team. This training program is for new and experienced runners looking to complete the 13.1-mile distance race on Sunday, December 3rd. The group develops designated leaders for different pace groups and meets each week. You are provided with a weekly plan and many tips on running gear, race nutrition, recovery, and more.

There is a fee to enroll in this program, which brings many runners into our community each season. For more information, please visit the Galloway Palm Beach Facebook Page, the Galloway Palm Beach website, or email to: runaracenow@gmail.com


Tri Bike Run Half Marathon Training Program

This program begins Saturday, Sept 9th at 6:30 am at Tri Bike Run (13975 US-1, Juno Beach, FL 33408) It is designed to help new runners achieve success in their first half marathon or allow experienced runners to better their time at the distance. The “goal race” is the Palm Beach Half Marathon on Sunday, Dec 3rd. Coach Spencer Cusmano details the program below…

“The idea behind this program is to accommodate a wide variety of runners. I would like the runners to be able to run 3 to 4 miles 3x a week or near this benchmark when they join. However, if they plan on walking they should be able to walk/run 3 miles before joining. I have created two plans to help with anyone that wants to run the race for time, or run/walk the race to just complete it. A rough outline of the 12-week program is to meet once a week on Saturday for our long run. Sunday will be a light/short day. I have scheduled 3 runs at a 4-7 mile distance during the week. One of the toughest things about training is sticking to the schedule, that is why we have this group to help people stay committed and working toward their goal. As the coach, I will hold people accountable, and keep them motivated. The goal is to prepare the runners for race day, make sure they are in shape, and that they stay healthy for race day.”

There is no charge for this program. More information on this half marathon training program can be found at the Tri Bike Run Facebook Page, by email to Coach Spencer at Cusman0S@Gmail.com, or by calling the store at (561) 627-2453

Chamber of Commerce Supports PBRR

West Palm Beach – The Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches contributed $1000 towards the Palm Beach Roadrunner Youth Running Camp Scholarships today. This was made possible through the running of the annual “Women For Women 5k and 10k” race in Lake Worth on May 13th. Race organizer and PBRR Past President Iva Grady was instrumental in arranging for this generous donation. Shown in the photograph are Mark Nosacka, CEO of Good Samaritan Medical Center, Dave Masterson, PBRR President,  and Joe Chase, Gunster.

Palm Beach Roadrunners thanks the Chamber of Commerce for this wonderful donation. Each year, PBRR sends young runners from local middle and high schools to Warrior Run Camp in Central Florida.

Similar to last year, a special Awards Night will take place on Wednesday, June 21st at 6:30 pm. We have use of the Auditorium/Cafeteria at Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach, nestled between Palm Beach Lakes Blvd and Okeechobee Blvd.

Please join us as we recognize our local runners and send them off to an exciting week of summer camp fun and training! This event will last approximately one hour.
