Fun Runs start next week

Happy Fourth of July weekend! I hope you are doing something awesome with the long weekend, maybe a day at the beach or lake, or maybe a long run or ride, maybe all of the above.

But don’t have too much fun, because we need you to come out to support our annual Family Fun Runs that start next week, Thursday, July 7.

Whether you want to bring the kids and introduce them to the sport of running or want to volunteer for one of our super-simple roles, I hope you’ll join us on the track at Livingston Park in Manchester. The experience is rewarding either way!

Also, if you know a kiddo who might be the next local track star or who just needs to get out and move, don’t forget to spread the word about this event. We have some great stories about kids who have found running through series and we want to keep more stories coming in.

If you have questions, email and I’ll get back to you ASAP.

Coming July: Summer Family Fun Run Track Meets

Our annual Summer Family Fun Run Track Meets are right around the corner and I hope you will be able to join us! We’ve had great turn out in past years, both from club members and the community.

The Family Fun Run Track Meets are scheduled for four consecutive Thursdays in July:

Week1: July 7
Week 2: July 14
Week 3: July 21
Week 4: July 28

 Livingston Park Track, Manchester, NH.
When: Registration opens at 5:15 p.m., events start at 5:30.

If you can help make this year a success, we are asking volunteers to show up to the track at 5 p.m. to help get registration started on time. If you can’t make it that early, we will need help later, with timing events, starting at 5:30, and cleanup after all is said and done.

If you want to volunteer, please use our Signup Genius form below. 

Please feel free to use this PDF or the image below to share this event.

You’re invited: Learn about Special Olympics NH, May 18

GMRC and Special Olympics New Hampshire have shared the Livingston Track during our Wednesday afternoon workouts for the last couple years, so we reached out to them to learn a little more.

What we discovered is that SONH is currently preparing several athletes to compete in the USA Games in Florida in June and is raising money to support those athletes. The board felt this would be an excellent opportunity to give back to local athletics using funds raised for this purpose in 2021.

Please consider joining us for a special event before the afternoon workout on May 18. There will be a short presentation by SONH and their athletes about the program, followed by a donation from GMRC.

When: 5:15 p.m., May 18

Where: Livingston Park Track
