Local Coached Running Groups:
Team Florida Track Club is a training group that welcomes runners of all ages and abilities. Team FTC offers 3 weekly runs around Gainesville allowing runners to train together throughout the week. Unlike other running clubs, TeamFTC has its own coach. Coach Enoch, a legendary runner for the University of Florida, offers customized training plans and one on one training sessions. Enoch's training programs are designed to offer runners the same level of training, proper nutrition, pacing strategies, specific pace ranges, core strength, and guidance typically reserved for professional athletes.

Gainesville Galloway Groups – Saturdays Mornings
We meet Saturday mornings in various locations in Gainesville that are scenic and safe to do long runs using the time-tested Galloway run/walk/run approach. This is great for new runners as well as seasoned people who have been plagued by injuries and want to prepare for a half or full marathon with less risk of getting hurt.
