Join the MJCCA's Galloway Run Club. Jeff Galloway's quest for an injury-free training program led him to develop this group training program in 1978. Galloway's mission is to help people improve their lives through walking and running. Focus on achieving your distance goal injury-free, while having fun and building your fitness!

Focus on reaching your distance goal through the Galloway Method at the MJCCA. Get yourself on track for a healthier lifestyle, and train to complete your first (or not your first) half- marathon, and set a PR! Running with a group will help you make new friends, encourage you to build your speed and endurance, and cross the finish line with a smile!

The training group welcomes all levels, from beginners to Boston qualifiers. Pace groups are set up to ensure a comfortable and safe training pace for every ability. We look forward to seeing you!


We are committed to helping our members on their path to a healthy and happy lifestyle. For our resident runners, the MJCCA offers mile-long running trail on our Dunwoody campus, as well as several running routes from one to five miles through the surrounding neighborhoods. We also offer a running club to encourage accountability and camaraderie in your running goals.

The MJCCA’s Inclusion Program strives to provide the necessary accommodations and flexibility for youth who require additional support so they may access the transformative opportunities available at the MJCCA. Our Inclusion Team collaborates with parents, educators, and staff to determine if successful program placement is possible. These youth and their families are then supported by our Inclusion Team through program accommodations and may also receive individualized assistance. Click here for more information.
