Welcome to the Nashua PAL Gate City Striders XC web site
Nashua PAL is known as one of the premier youth cross-country program in New England. Over the years the Nashua PAL GCS program has produced a number of USATF Junior Olympic National Championship teams and numerous All-Americans in various age groups for boys and girls. The Nashua PAL GCS program will be open to all youth runners from any and all communities across New Hampshire and surrounding Massachusetts communities this year. The Nashua PAL GCS program has had a long tradition of success and is excited to continue that success into the 2012 season and to maintain its tradition for having a professional, established and fun youth program.
