One Race. A Lifetime of Change.
For 15 years running, the Gazelle Foundation has thrown the best race in town. Each November, over 5,000 runners and walkers take to the streets of downtown Austin for the annual Run For The Water 10 Miler, 5K, and Kids K through our beautiful west Austin course.
The race benefits the Gazelle Foundation, dedicated to providing clean water to the people of Burundi. Each registration equals clean water for one person for life. Clean water provides a path out of poverty, bringing access to better health, stronger communities, jobs, education, and most of all: hope
