Volunteering with Galloway NYC!
Galloway NYC members Telisa Walter, Michelle Karwejna and Patrick Dillon organized Galloway-sponsored fluid stations at NYRR 5-boro races and the NYC Marathon. Volunteering as a team increases camaraderie, promotes the Galloway NYC running club to the community, and lets us earn some benefits for the team while giving back. Each volunteer receives +1 volunteer credit and guaranteed entry into the 5-boro race for 2017 (not the marathon, of course)... plus, for each 20 people who sign up at the Galloway fluid station and check in on race day, we earn one guaranteed 2017 NYC Marathon bib for the team, which will be raffled off to those who volunteer as part of the team.
2017 First Group Run
Galloway NYC welcomed many new runners -- and many returning members! -- to a beautiful first run on the lower loop of Central Park. Over the next two weeks we will do "magic miles" to find our own sweet spot for training pace and intervals.

2015 Inaugural Brooklyn Rock-n-Roll Half... NYRR Staten Island Half... Post-Race Picnic!!
It was a busy weekend for our members, some of whom ran a marathon over the weekend by doing both the Brooklyn RNR half and the Staten Island NYRR five-boro half! (Indeed, we had other members completing a marathon in one day: Chicago, Buenos Aires and Steamtown!)
2015 Marathon 101 Clinic
Nice attendance for a delayed, rainy morning run and post-run clinic led by current and former Leadership Team members, covering all aspects of marathon day preparation, including nutrition and gear (nothing new on race day!), a checklist for marathon morning, and a turn-by-turn tour of the course. Many thanks to Joel, Ruth and Robin for valuable information and a fun presentation!

July 4th: Magic Mile, Lighthouse Run and Pool Party!
A great time was had by all on this holiday outing! The group ran 6 miles in all, including a timed Magic Mile on the beautiful Riverbank Olympic Oval, and enjoyed a picturesque run to the Little Red Lighthouse. Afterwards, several members enjoyed a cooling dip in Riverbank's indoor and outdoor pools.
Jeff Galloway came in person to help Galloway NYC kickoff the 2015 running season and join us for a fun run in Central Park. Welcome, Jeff, and all our new runners!
