About our Granite State Running Team Club
We are a group of runners of all ages and abilities who meet every Tuesday at 5:30 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 Running Team (GSRT). Club members benefit from access to professional coaching services and generous discounts to local retailers. Learn more on www.rungsrt.com
GSRT has an annual membership fee of $45 for individuals, and $65 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 Smiler. Team announcements and the weekly workout is emailed to all members.
