Gazelle Girl 1/2 Marathon & 5k Race!



Calling all runners! Looking to run a race of a lifetime? I have one just for you! The Gazelle Girl Half Marathon and 5K race is the perfect way to kick off Spring. I had the privilege of running the inaugural race last year and am excited to come back again for a 2nd year to run!


I ran the 5k race last year, which was the first race ever. I loved every second of it! The course was fun, the runners were supportive, and the volunteers were so helpful! It is a great way to welcome Spring and the start of your running season.

So grab your girlfriends, mothers, sisters, cousins, grandmas, aunts, or a co-worker and sign up for this event! Whether you are looking to complete your first 5k or half marathon, or want to set a personal record, this race is for you.


The half marathon (13.1 miles) will be capped at 4,000 runners who will enjoy Nike tech-t’s and a unique sterling silver finisher charm from Imua Jewlery by Terryberry! 5k (3.1 miles) finishers will enjoy a high quality cotton shirt and finisher prize.
