Description

2018 will mark the sixth anniversary of the Gazelle Girl Half Marathon! We are proud of the way the event has grown, the women who have joined us on event day, the partnerships we’ve created, and the funds we’ve raised for our amazing charity partners.

We hope that you will join us on Sunday, April 22, 2018! 

Gazelle Sports is hosting this event:

* To honor women and celebrate Title IX

* To actively encourage new runners to participate in the sport

* To build relationships

* Because women’s health impacts family health

* To enhance partnerships within the community

* To raise money for women's charities

* To HAVE FUN!!

Grab your girlfriends, mothers, sisters, cousins, grandmas, aunts, or co-workers and sign up for this event! You won't regret it! We promise! Whether you are looking to complete your first 5k, 10k, or half marathon, or want to set a personal record, this event is for you! All participants will enjoy a Nike Tech Tee and a unique finisher's gift. For information on the fit of Nike shirts, please click here.

For the MEN: Having a women's only event breaks down barriers and the intimidation factor for many women. By hosting this event we know we will impact lives of women that may have never participated in the sport. It's about encouraging women to come together to celebrate what Title IX did for them. We can't host an event like this alone so we hope that men will support us as volunteers! Men are very important to the success of this event! Check back soon for our Gazelle Girl volunteer opportunities.

Title IX

This event started as a celebration of Title IX, the law that made discrimination between men’s and women’s educational programs illegal. Title IX had its largest impact expanding girls' and women's sports at the high school and college level. This ultimately created professional opportunities for female athletes. Sports wouldn't be what they are today without Title IX.
