Melissa Schrotenboer - Gazelle Sports Activator

I started Running when I was around 9/10 years old. My Grandpa and Dad Signed my up to run the Cherry Festival 5k in Traverse City, MI. BIG STUFF !!! How did I do ? Well... I think I did OK, somewhere around 30 minutes, I don't remember exactly.

So I guess from that point forward I was a Runner :) After College I started to get into a little bit more distance running. Starting with the 5/3 River Bank Run 10K in 2010 and slowly working my way towards the Bayshore Marathon in 2015.


I have been a Girls on the Run Coach for 5 Years and a Assistance Cross Country Coach for 7 Years. I very much enjoy hanging out with the kids, and running with them. I was a 2017 Gazelle Sport Activator and it was AWESOME!!!  I am super pumped to be sharing the Run LOVE again this year with Gazelle Sports.


This Spring I am planning on Hurt the Dirt 10K, Gazelle Girl 1/2 Marathon (Pacer), Tulip Time 5k/10K, 5/3 Riverbank 25K, Bayshore 1/2 Marathon, Zeeland Zoom, Michigan RTS, Holland Haven...... I think there are a few more but those are the ones the come to mind at the moment.
