At Gazelle Sports we actively pursue, encourage and celebrate a healthy lifestyle. We have a vision to change West Michigan by making it the healthiest region in the country.  In 2015 over 3,500 women came together to run the streets of Grand Rapids. Over 700 women ran the half marathon or the 5k distance for the first time. That’s what it’s about! This year’s event is going to be even better and we hope you will join us!
