The Bridge of Flowers 10k Classic was conceived in 1979 and has remained on approximately the same course ever since that first competition. The one notable exception is that (back in the early days of the race) the runners actually ran across the
. However, in the 1980's the Bridge was rehabilitated and the course was slightly altered. What has not changed is the beauty & charm of the village and the warm & friendly people of Bridge of Flowers . This year’s race was the sixth race in the New England Grand Prix Series and it was another great day of running and team camaraderie for the GCS-Triad Racing Team. Shelburne Falls

This past Saturday was the Sandown Old Home Days 5 Miler which served as the 6th of 7 New Hampshire Grand Prix Races. And, with
holding a very slim lead over host Greater Derry, it was important that our club get a good turnout for this “Showdown in Sandown”. Fortunately, we did have a good turnout. Unfortunately, we still got smoked. More on that later … Gate City

Fitness University recently wrapped up it's 2010 schedule of clinics with Finals Day on August 1st and I just wanted to take a moment to acknowledge what a phenomenally great program it is! Fitness University is a FREE running fitness program for children ages 3 to 14. It was originally developed in 1989 by the Gate City Striders, as a way to help promote the importance of fitness, fun and good health. Through June and into July, running clinics are held in Nashua and surrounding towns. Kids are instructed on how to warm-up, stretch, run and have fun while doing it. They learn about healthy eating habits and staying safe. Then, the fun culminates on Finals Day with games, prizes, and plenty of laughter for all.
Southern New Hampshire Medical Center for making this great event happen!
