Girls Gone Gazelle is a not-for-profit, all-girls running club that began for pre-teens but from time to time does accept older girls. Members of the club can be found training on the indoor track at the Dartmouth Sportsplex, in Shubie Park and around the Halifax Commons. Each run club follows a learn-to-run program created by Coach Stacy that is designed for children and promotes confidence, body acceptance and socialization.

Girls Gone Gazelle Run Club gives girls an opportunity to participate in a non-competitive running group that creates an enjoyment of physical activity. We provide a safe and respectful environment that builds the girls’ self-esteem and knowledge of exercise, while learning to run up to 5K.

With childhood obesity on the rise, the goal of Girls Gone Gazelle Run Club is to help young girls become active before junior high. By incorporating regular cardiovascular activity between the ages of 8-12 we hope to increase the probability of them staying active through their teen years, thereby reducing the chance of weight related issues during puberty.

We believe that joining Girls Gone Gazelle Run Club will not only create memorable childhood experiences and life-long friendships, but also develop self-confidence and effective stress management techniques while connecting with positive role models in the form of adult female runners and guest speakers.

Registration

We offer three learn-to-run sessions each year (Spring, Summer and Fall) located in Dartmouth and Halifax. We are happy to add your potential Gazelle to the waiting list for the next session.

 

Update from Coach Stacy

Our final run club of the year had its graduation run this past Sunday, October 27th at the Scary Beazley Run which is a part of the Youth Running Series. What an amazing year it has been! We were able to try a number of new things this year that were made possible from funding from the Dartmouth Community Health Board, our own fundraising efforts with the Benny Bulldog 5K & Duathlon and from a summer partnership with the Junior League of Halifax.
