run with US!


Gilbert's Gazelles has been training runners and other athletes in Austin, Texas since 2002. We serve everyone from kids to adults, beginners to elites, casual runners to competitors—5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Marathon.

Our group is unique because every member is trained by the founder, Olympian and All-American, Gilbert Tuhabonye. You will receive personal instruction while training within a group of runners at comparable pace and fitness levels. Gilbert's passion for coaching and running—and his amazing ability to know every Gazelle—will make you feel at home and inspire you to take your training to new levels.


Everyone is Welcome

Beginners

Gilbert's Gazelles embraces anyone who wants to start a running program. If you have never run before or want to improve your endurance and speed, you’ll find our training program is perfectly suited to your abilities and goals.

Intermediates

If you have been running on your own and working to improve your race results and fitness level, we will help get you there. As an intermediate runner, you are familiar with running and training terminology, you track your pace and are ready to work toward better results.  

Advanced

Advanced runners have a lot of running experience and are looking for a bigger challenge. You run on a regular basis, do well in races, but still want to get faster, stronger and increase your overall fitness.


Joining the Herd

We have several membership options. Whichever membership you choose, everyone is a Gazelle and trains together while receiving individual instruction. Learn more about our training groups.

    Once you become a Gazelle, you will have access to our Members section which includes: the training schedule, a pace calculator, workout glossary, running stats and our picture gallery.

    Where We Meet

    Most workouts start at Gazelles headquarters, located downtown at 115 Sandra Muraida Way, Suite 105-A, just off the trail.

    During the week, downtown training groups meet and train with Coach Gilbert. For Gazelles unable to meet us downtown, we have a North Austin (Far West) group that meets twice a week (M/W 5:30am) and is led by Coach Jay Clement.

    Some of the downtown locations include:

    • Gazelle Headquarters

    Gazelles Give Back

     

    The Gazelle Foundation funds and builds clean water projects in Burundi, Africa. One of the poorest countries on earth, most people in rural Burundi walk over two miles for untreated water from streams and puddles, often shared with livestock. Through clean water projects, the Gazelle Foundation is offering a first step in breaking the vicious cycle of poverty in Burundi. Learn More
