Welcome to the Nashua PAL Gate City Striders Cross Country 2021

Nationally competitive Jr. Olympic teams being selected! Nashua PAL Striders is known as one of the premier youth cross country programs in New England. Over the years this program has produced a number of USATF Junior Olympic National Championship teams and numerous All-Americans in various age groups for boys and girls. The Nashua Strider’s program will be open to all youth runners from any and all communities across New Hampshire and surrounding Massachusetts communities this year. The Nashua PAL Strider’s Jr. Olympic program has had a long tradition of success and is excited to continue that success into the 2021 season and to maintain its tradition for having a professional, established and fun youth program.

We are pleased to again offer our JOXC Youth Cross Country Program. A lot has changed for this season but what remains is our focus on helping kids work to achieve personal running goals, build strong bonds with teammates, and develop a love for running that we hope will last a lifetime.
