She Runs Grand Rapids

Half Marathon, 10k, 5k


Proud, Confident, Bold, Energetic, Loud

-A Gazelle Sports Event presented by University of Michigan Health-West


We celebrate her, because she runs with confidence. She faces her challenges with fear in her pocket, but even more courage in her heart. She runs  -- and walks -- knowing that every step gets her closer to herself, her community, and her values. 


Join us at Calder Plaza in Downtown Grand Rapids, MI

SHE RUNS Grand Rapids
April 30, 2023


SHE RUNS Grand Rapids, (formerly Gazelle Girl,) started in 2013  to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Title IX. Over the past 10 years, thousands of women from 30 states and abroad have joined to run and walk in downtown Grand Rapids. SHE RUNS GR continues to connect women through movement, and we envision it as a key part of the transformation toward healthier living in West Michigan, and intentionally engaging historically underrepresented communities- inviting not just any She who runs, but every She who runs! 


We are proud that 100 percent of the event profits will be donated to our longstanding charity partners, Girls on the Run and the YWCA of West Central Michigan. On April 30, 2023 we will continue to celebrate the legacy of what we’ve built, honor the moment in which we now find ourselves, and look ahead to the future of inclusivity in the running community. Our sincerest hope is that you’re as excited as we are about the evolution of SHE RUNS GR. Please plan to join us to celebrate 11 years of running – and walking – the streets of our incredible city!
