The last Fitness University night was last night. The program was a greatsuccess all summer long. A big thank you to everyone who helped out and participated! There has been a lot of great feedback!

There are 3 more races left in the Summer Trail Series program. We’ve been seeing record numbers this year! We’re also looking for a couple of Striders to step up and take over as co-race directors. Please let myself or a board member know if you are interested.

Join us for our Annual Health and Wellness Night next Wednesday, Aug 7th! Get your BINGO card and visit all the vendors to get your stickers which will earn you raffle tickets for great prizes donated by the Vendors! Free ice cream from Haywards starting after 6:30pm

Next NHGP Race is the Boot Scootin’ Boogie race in Londonderry on Aug 17th. We’re currently in first place, but we need every point we can get going into the last few races. Even if you think you aren’t fast enough, you might surprise yourself and score points for the club. It’s all in who shows up. Every Runner Counts, Every Point Counts.

The club has partnered with Sub 5 Racing to help put on their Wolf Hollow 10 Miler. As part of that, we have been given some free passes to use at their event. Half of those passes will go to those who have volunteered at a few events this year: Gate City Marathon, Half Marathon and Relay, Freeze Your Buns, Summer Trail Series, and Fitness University. There’s still time to volunteer at the last two and earn extra chances for
these passes! For the volunteer passes, you do not have to be a Strider.
The second half of the free passes are available to anyone who is an
active Strider on the day that we draw the names. Please submit your
name, email and which events (if any) you have volunteered at so far this year There have not been many signups so far, so your chances are pretty good! Sign up today!
We’ll be drawing the names on Health and Wellness night on August 7th. If you don’t want to wait to see if you win one of the free passes, there is a discount code for 10% off for Gate City Members: GCSWH10
