Elite Series

Print

As part of the M.I.T.S season, the Gazelle Sport Elite Series was created with the thought that if we put the best kids on the track for one race, the results would take care of themselves. . . and that’s exactly what has happened!

For the past five years, the Gazelle Sports Elite Mile and Gazelle Sports Elite 3200 have featured some of the top performances not only in Michigan, but the whole United States.

 We can’t wait to see what this year will bring!

All events will be hosted by Grand Valley State University on the Allendale, MI campus at the Kelly Family Sports Complex.
