Boston Marathon Bibs!

DEADLINE IS TODAY!
The club has received 3 invitational bibs for the Boston Marathon. The submission form is open now until June 16th. http://gatecity.org/boston-marathon-bib-form/As in prior years, the more active you are within the club – racing, volunteering, showing up at team activities – the more likely you are to win one of these coveted bibs. Plenty of volunteering opportunities coming up soon! Volunteering also helps satisfy one of the requirements for race reimbursement as races start coming back around.

Runner of the month

This month’s runner(s) of the month are the Rube family! Read more about them here: http://gatecity.org/runner-of-the-month/

Outdoor Track! Tonight and every Wednesday night thru the summer!

Track is back! We had a good showing last night at the return of outdoor track. We’re currently meeting at the field near the intersection of Sargents Ave and Manchester St in Nashua. We do have the approval to move to a school track in Hollis in about a month, but are currently finalizing that. We start announcements at 6pm and then the coaches take over from there. See you at track tonight!

Summer Trail Series

Good crowds each night! Volunteers also needed http://gatecity.org/mfsts/
