2021 Event FAQ
A: You can choose to register for any distance of the 2021 virtual Gazelle Girl Half Marathon event for the price of $30. Prices will increase to $35 March 1, and $40 on April 1. While we had hoped to be able to provide an in person event experience, we are unable to do so at this time. You also have the option of adding on the full Gazelle Girl Legacy Love Series, and information can be found here.
A: Your virtual race packet includes the women’s fit shirt, custom medal designed by Maxwell Medals, and race bib. You also have the option to add a Gazelle Girl Legacy Love Series Package consisting of an adjustable bangle bracelet, and custom charms from longtime partner Terryberry. Simply register for one of the following two options:
- Run any combo of 3 distances to get a bracelet and 3 charms: Gazelle, Girl, 2021- $30
- Run any combo of 2 distances to get a bracelet and 2 charms: Gazelle, Girl- $25
You have the opportunity to transition your registration two ways:
- Activate your 2021 Gazelle Girl virtual registration- This option is the best choice for the participant wanting to support Gazelle Girl not just this year, but for the future viability of the event. If you are not planning to run a distance, and would like us to consider your registration a contribution to Gazelle Girl, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- Receive a Refund- We understand that a virtual event may not meet your expectation for deferral, so we will provide a refund of your 2020 event registration if you choose not to activate your deferred entry. Refunds will automatically be issued, in bulk after the conclusion of this year’s event, to those who choose not to activate their deferral.
A reserve entry will be sent to each participant who deferred their entry from 2020.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a dedicated mailing to Gazelle Girl followers separate from Gazelle Sports. Be sure you are subscribed specifically to ours and not just the retail brand. Once you confirm your subscription, add “Gazelle Girl” to your contacts to ensure our emails do not land in your Spam folder.
Participants will be notified once swag items start shipping, and/or are available for in-store pick up.
You will receive an exclusive email with instructions on how to become part of the private events for information regarding giveaways, inside scoop, and challenges. This will be a great way for you to share photos and connect with other local runners for neighborhood Gazelle Girl gatherings right in your own communities! Your bracelet and charms will be packaged with your event swag.
We were hoping to be able to plan for an in-person experience too. Unfortunately, we’re just not able to do so at this time. In the event that gathering protocols change, and we can host small meet-ups or limited capacity in-person experiences, you’ll be the first to know.
In order to ensure the long term financial sustainability of the event, we will not be issuing refunds for the difference of last year’s entry fee.
We are planning for a clean slate in 2022 for our ten year anniversary, and hope that this year Gazelle Girls will help us cross the bridge to get there, therefore, we will not be allowing deferrals to 2022 from this year’s event.
Unfortunately, the Double Down medal will not be available for 2021 due to the difficulties of both events having to navigate another year impacted by COVID-19.
There is no formal reporting needed, but if you are on Strava, you can share your event with the Gazelle Girl community at the following link: https://www.strava.com/athletes/82306239.
