Novemberfest
Due to Covid-19 the 22nd Annual Novemberfest will be held virtually on Sunday November 22, 2020.This event, hosted by the Gate City Striders, benefits the Nashua Childrens Home, and the wonderful work they do. Novemberfest has always been primarily a social event and a successful Novemberfest has been when we had a standing room only crowd in the bar at Martha’s Exchange. While we can’t gather as usual this year, the Nashua Children’s Home still needs our support. We are still offering some terrific raffle prizes of value greater than your entry fee. Entrants are encouraged to run the 4-mile Novemberfest course anytime before Sunday November 22, 2020 to be included in the race results. http://www.lightboxreg.com/novemberfest_2020

Take care, be safe, and see you on the roads!
