There is still PLENTY of room to come join us at indoor track on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please fill out the waivers and sign up form from here: and bring them and a check to the track and you’re in! Lots of great workouts to get you ready to kick butt into the spring season! A night by night option is available. $10 per night as long as there is capacity. First come, first served with precedence to anyone who has signed up for the entire workout. You’ll still need to fill out the waivers but bring exact cash or a check made out to the Gate City Striders and check in with the coaches to pay and get the wristband. The competitive night is similar to our outdoor track workouts. Whether you are training for a 5k,10k, half or full, there’s a workout prescribed for that night. The coaches are there to help guide you thru and give lap times. Just like at outdoor track. All paces are absolutely welcome. Come join us next Tuesday if you’re curious. Recreational night is similar to a Couch to 5k program.

We will once again have a bus heading down for the Boston Marathon. You can reserve your spot by paying $65 / seat ($75 after Feb 15th) to Dan Dugan. Checks payable to GATE CITY STRIDERS and mailed to Marathon Bus, 22 Cabot Dr, Nashua NH 03064. Or Venmo Dan at Dan-Dugan-99.
