2022 Summer Track
Club track workouts are available and free to all GCS members! Whether you are working on breaking the world record for the fastest mile or you are stepping onto a track for the first time, we hope you'll join us for track and speed workouts. Coaches will be available, and club members as well as the coaches are happy to talk about running with new members and those working on improving themselves.
Bring a water bottle and join us! No other equipment necessary.
* Traditionally track workouts are at Nashua High School South, but due to track construction scheduled for this summer, we will be at Nashua High School North until construction is complete.
New this year! Starting June 1st there will be a FREE Yoga and core workout after track! This is another benefit available to Gate City Strider members.
Thank you instructor Lori for offering this benefit. Please bring a yoga mat or a towel, though Lori will have a few mats too. Can't come for track? That's okay, you can still come for yoga/core!
Disclaimer: Workouts may be changed at the discretion of the coaching staff, and adjustments may be made based on the NH and NE Grand Prix schedules.

Health and Wellness Night!
The always popular Health and Wellness Night is a time when local vendors come to the track, giving members an opportunity to check out their businesses and maybe even pick up some free swag. Come join us on Wednesday, August 17th, starting at 5:30PM. This is a FREE event open to all club members, whether you are running track or just hanging out! We’ll have a special treat for all participants and Lori will be teaching yoga after track.
Vendors will set up near the track and you’ll be able to visit their tables before, during and after, the track workout. Each Strider will be given a BINGO card and will be encouraged to visit every vendor to collect stickers that they can turn in for raffle tickets. We’ll hold a raffle drawing at the end of the event!
Some of the local businesses who will be in attendance include:
Natural Medicine of NH (fellow GCSer – Lisa Klasman)

Candlelight Relay/Bell Lap Celebration!
Join the Gate City Striders for the last summer track workout of the season. What makes this special? Runners are divided into random teams where each runner will run a 400 meter lap as part of a relay. It will be dark before the workout is done, but don't worry. We have candles around the inner edge of the track so you can see. If you haven't been before, pictures don't do it justice. Details TBD but there is often a social aspect after the relay is complete.
