Founded in 1979, the Gate City Striders has grown to over 600 members strong. We compete in the USATF New England Grand Prix, the New Hampshire Grand Prix and the USATF NE Mountain Circuit among other races. We host the Gate City Marathon, Half and Relay, Freeze Your Buns 5K Series and Summer Trail Series. We offer running programs to the youth of our community with Nashua PAL Striders cross-country, youth track & field and Fitness University. The Gate City Striders are 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.
