Our Mission

The Gate City Striders is the largest running club in New Hampshire. We offer something for every type of runner from beginner to seasoned competitor. We run all year, in all types of weather and all distances and paces. We gather to run, to volunteer, to cheer each other on and for social events. The Gate City Striders encourage running and running events in Nashua and the surrounding areas. Our members and the community we live in are our number one focus, and we work hard to maintain a positive relationship with both.
