Join us for a beautiful 10 mile road race hosted by volunteers from the Granite State Racing Team. The 9th Annual Granite State 10 Smiler is one of Concord's oldest running race events that takes runners over a bike path, past farms, and through quiet country roads to support the Boys & Girls Club of Central New Hampshire and the NHTI Cross country running team. The registration fee is purposely kept as low as possible to make this running event affordable to as many runners as possible. Please consider donating extra in which 100% will go directly to the Boys & Girls Club. View the course map.
Shirts and Prizes
Registration is priced as affordably as possible so that as many people can afford to participate as possible. In order to keep the registration price low, we separated the shirt order out and made it a separate option for you. The price you pay is essentially our cost rounded up to the nearest dollar (because we don't want to deal with pennies) at $22/shirt. Feel free to order as many as you want to buy.
The other way to order a shirt is to skip the shirt order page when you register, and, instead, wait until later in this checkout process so you can make a $35 donation or more directly to the Boys & Girls Club of Central New Hampshire and automatically be eligible to receive a shirt on race day. Our club's entire goal for this race is to maximize donations to the Boys & Girls Club.
Shirts are gender specific and designed by our local artist Jeremiah Gould. He can often be found working as the Marketing Manager at Runner's Alley so swing in and smother him with compliments.
5 & Dime Finishers
All runners who complete both the Bill Luti 5 Miler on July 20, 2019 and the Granite State 10 Smiler will automatically receive a special prize. If all goes according to plan, finishers will be able to leave with the prize on race day.
2018 5 & Dime finishers can now pick up their prize at Runner's Alley on Main Street in Concord. We have a pair of running gloves for you, just in time for the chilly winter runs. Also, as a bonus, look for an email from one of the race volunteers with your unique discount code giving you $5 off your 2019 Granite State 10 Smiler registration.
