Training 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.

Two Rules Running

Two Rules Running is a running training group that focuses on improving performance through structured workouts and a supportive running community.

The Two Rules are simple:

Rule #1: Look good

Rule #2: Don’t die

The Rules are both whimsical and serious.

Here’s how simple they are to follow. Are you running? Then you look good! A side perk is that because you have been running, you will look good even when you are not running =)

Are you still breathing? Second rule achieved! A side perk is that because you have been running, you will probably live even longer =)  To contact or for more information go to tworulesrunning.com
