EXPERT INSTRUCTION Jeff Galloway is truly a running legend. He ran with Steve Prefontaine, Bill Rodgers, Frank Shorter, and Amby Burfoot when the United States was a leading power in marathoning. He ran in over 130 marathons and continues to average about 7 marathons a year. Jeff is also a legendary running coach, with over 30 years of expertise safely progressing runners of all levels to the finish line with a smile on their faces. Jeff's running books have sold over a million copies, and he writes a monthly column in Runner's World. If you're looking for an expert coach, why not have one of the best in the world? BEAT-SYNC Jeff Galloway's Marathon dynamically changes the beat of YOUR music to perfectly match your pace. Research shows that music distracts the brain during exercise and faster music causes people to accept and even prefer a greater degree of effort. This means you will work harder without trying (or without even feeling the difference), you will get better results from the increased effort, and most importantly, the time will fly by. You can also download 15 tracks of high-energy fitness music for FREE to really get your playlist pumping. DESIGNED AROUND YOU Whether you're looking to complete your first race or you want to improve your marathon time, Easy marathon has the perfect program for you. Your pace and Run-Walk-Run ratio of each workout is customized to your ability, plus Easy marathon gives you complete control as you move through your workout. Turn the intensity down a bit when you're struggling or crank it up when you're ready for more, and Easy marathon adjusts your workout — and your music — on the fly. GPS TRACKING Easy marathon includes GPS tracking* so you can see your pace and the distance covered during your workouts. GPS works best outside with a clear view of the sky. When you want to work indoors on a track or on a treadmill, use your beat-synced music to set your pace, and Easy marathon will track your results. Works with Health - Completed workouts sync to the Health app, including distance, calories burned and duration. *Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.




  • You can’t register

    By A word swagger
    I’ve tried half a dozen times to register my app and it won’t let you. Plus when you click on the website to find assistance it’s not there. This was a waste of money
  • Good, but....

    By clyde71
    I would give it 5 stars if you could listen to your own music without keeping this open on the main screen. I like to listen to podcasts (or Zombie Run😉) when I run (especially on long runs), but when using this app I have to keep my phone in my hand during the run (not put it to sleep and keep it in my flipbelt).
  • Awesome Running Coach App

    By SylviaAP73
    I am training For the Dopey Challenge at Walt Disney World. Coach Galloway recommends the run/walk method for pain free running and this app was listed so I decided to try it. So far after three weeks I can say that I truly enjoy the work out. Coach Galloway's training tips keep me motivated and the synchronization of my music to the tempo keep me running. Highly recommend for both beginners and seasoned runners who are looking to run for longer distances and don't have hours to train.
  • 26.2 running app

    This app is wishy washy and not consistent. It has stopped tracking my distance and run/walk ratio in the middle of multiple runs making it impossible to track your progress.
  • Nice "coach"

    By fnp flossboss
    So far so good. Finished the first week. Time and distance display is very good - clear, customizable. Changing speed of the music works pretty well on tunes from my collection although a few could not be interpreted into the format it uses to get the beat. Jeff Galloway's "coaching" is actually enjoyable with useful tips. Setup is easy and it looks like modifying the workout program will be easy. Good app for any runner but especially for one starting out.
  • Can't listen to streaming music

    By crosseyedkat
    Would really like the ability to play music from another app instead of having this app take over the audio.

    Awesome app! I'm not a fast runner & have run/walked half marathons for several years. I'm now training for my first marathon and this app gives you easy to follow daily runs with no need to create a marathon training program for yourself. This is a huge relief for a first time marathoner. Simply follow the program and you're ready. My recovery time has been quick with no pain even though I have bad knees. Thanks Jeff Galloway!
  • Nice app that has room for improvement

    By Albuquerque Mike
    It really has added something to my outlook as an endurance athlete, particularly as I approach 50. My legs feel fresh and I have logged more marathons in one year than ever before since using this program, including two of my fastest three and a new P.R. That said, I'd love to see it be switchable to landscape view (which would be easier to read from my arm band) and to allow for some nuance in training pace... For now, at least as far as I have been able to figure out, options are limited to one-minute increments, so one cannot train on a plan for an 8:20 mile, but only an 8:00 or 9:00 mile. Finally, the app sometimes (rarely) freezes when measuring a timed run, such that one must rely on a watch or other means to know when to quit. Note that music bought on iTunes cannot be synced to the app, so keep this in mind when choosing tunes.
  • Lots of problems with this App

    By Jaxxer72
    Hard to use. Gps is worthless. I like the idea behind this app but it needs a lot of work. I will be going back to my run keeper
