The concept.  Join the Gate City Striders in a virtual charity run! Even with the spring and summer race seasons shutting down due to COVID-19, we can still get out and enjoy our sport responsibly. Put that winter training to good use to support a great cause. Depending on turn out for the first series we will continue with 2 more 4 - week series. Each series will have a charity beneficiary.

The beneficiary.  The proceeds from our first series will go to the United Way of Nashua Covid-19 Emergency Relief Fund.  We hope to help fund their efforts. 

The race distances.  You have your choice of 5k or 5 mile options for this five week series.

Signing up and reporting your results.  You can sign up for any one of the distances individually or you can sign up for all events at a reduced cost. Participants will run their selected distance by themselves and report back how far and how fast they ran.

Prizes.  We’ll randomly select runners from each race series to win a gift certificate from a local establishment.  We’re spreading the love helping local businesses as well!

How to submit your results.  Details of how to submit your results will be emailed to you before the first series starts. Participants can run on a treadmill, on the track, or by using a GPS. Please email distances and times or GPS data to gcssocialdistance@gmail.com before the next weeks race starts.
