About our Granite State Racing Team Club
We are a group of runners of all ages and abilities who meet every Tuesday at 5:15 PM at Memorial Field in Concord, New Hampshire from April through October. The word "racing" can be deceiving as we are actually a running training club that is open to anyone; whether you are a new runner who is looking for training advice and like-minded friends or whether you are a seasoned athlete.
You are welcome to try a few weekly workouts first before deciding if you officially want to become a member of the Granite State Racing Team (GSRT). Club members benefit from access to professional coaching services and generous discounts to local retailers.
GSRT has an annual membership fee of $35 for individuals, and $50 for families. Your membership will help to offset the club's insurance expense required for using Memorial Field, for coaching services, and to support our annual race: the Boys & Girls Club Granite State 10 Miler. Team announcements and weekly workout email are posted to our Yahoo group. Join the group or download the membership form.
