Zero Waste

Organizers of the Gazelle Girl Half Marathon are proud to continue striving for a zero waste event! This means that we are making an active effort to strive for the most sustainable economic, social, and environmental best practices. We are committed to setting a notable example and have a vision of a world where responsibly produced sporting events are the norm. How can you get involved?

PITCH IN ON EVENT DAY: Look for the City Sort stations and leave your items in the appropriate bins. Please do not leave trash on the ground for others to pick up.

JOIN THE GAZELLE GIRL GREEN TEAM:  We can’t do it alone! If you or someone you know wants to help our zero waste initiative, please consider volunteering for the Gazelle Girl Green Team. Click here to register!

TERRACYCLE: TerraCycle is Eliminating the Idea of Waste®by recycling the “non-recyclable.” The Gazelle Girl Half Marathon has partnered with TerraCycle to collect energy bar wrappers before and during the event. Drop off your energy bar wrappers at Gazelle Sports Grand Rapids. Look for the TerraCycle receptacle at the front of the store.
