Weekly Announcements Aug 10th, 2022

Hello Striders!

Hope everyone is enjoying this nice break from the constant 90 degree plus temps and wicked high humidity!

Congrats to Silvana Morgan for 2nd place AG at the Run for Liv a few weeks ago! Speedy!

If you or someone you know has had a significant race accomplishment, please let me know! stephenrrouleau@gmail.com

SANDOWN 5 MILER – NHGP

Congrats to everyone who ran for Gate City this past Saturday! We had 36 striders toe the line in some really hot, humid conditions. We came in second place as a club, but regained the lead more than doubling the total number of points that previous NHGP leader, Upper Valley, got! Great work by all!

Great seeing new striders Alison Lilienfeld, Terryl Fritz Colleen Berube, Jon Hambrecht, Erin Caples, among others show up at their first NHGP race and score points for us!

OUTDOOR TRACK

Outdoor track continues on Wednesdays at Nashua North High School. Join the 5k/10k workout or the marathon/21k workouts each night. Starts at 6pm sharp with announcements. Workouts begin just after that

Once the Nashua South track updates are complete, we will be moving back over there. Sounds like they should be done by the beginning of September.

YOGA/CORE NIGHTS

Yoga/Core returns to track! Come join us for a great stretch and a little core work after track. Come for track and stay for yoga, or just come for the yoga. Starts once the track work is done, usually around 6:40pm.

HAYWARDS RUN

Everyones favorite social event is back! Join us on Tuesday August 23rd for a run, and we’ll get you a super secret discount code that’ll get you 25% off ice cream at Haywards afterwards. What better motivation to run!?

NEW HAMPSHIRE GRAND PRIX

We’ll be running another track 5k on Thursday August 18th at Nashua North. This is free for everyone, and is considered the 5th race in the NHGP series. You can run this as many times as you’d like. Check out more info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1189650304944543

Every teammate who shows up WILL score points. You WILL help the team! #EveryRunnerCounts #EveryPointCounts

Singlets can be purchased at Fleet Feet for $20 cash or check!

HEALTH AND WELLNESS NIGHT

Mark your calendars for August 17th to join us at track. We’ll bring in a bunch of local running related vendors who will have some giveaways, and I hear there might be some treats at the finish! If you know of anyone you think should be a part of this, please contact Amanda Naro
