FTC Board member, local Race Director, and Coach, Patrick Gallagher first ran competitively in high school in the previous century. Since then he has competed in just about every distance from 5k’s to 100+ mile trail races. He ran his first marathon in 2002 at Disney and has since completed over 40 races of marathon distance or more. In the past couple of years he’s qualified for and run both the Boston Marathon and the Western States Endurance Run 100 miler and logged his 4th consecutive finish of the Barkley Fall Classic 50k, the baby brother to the infamous Barkley Marathons (the race that eats its young).
What’s the one thing that has been constant in his running all these years? The track.
