Commit to Get Fit Nashua

Join us and Commit to Get Fit in 2021.  Our event is planned for Sunday, September 19, 2021 in beautiful Mine Falls Park in Nashua, New Hampshire.  We are committing to change our diet and adding more healthy habits over time leading up the the event. 

Start a walking program, make healthier food choices, drink more water, and enjoy more time in nature. Studies show that spending time in nature is an antidote for stress, can lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety, enhance immune system function, and increase mood and self-esteem. 

Apps like Map My Run and On the Go Map will help you start tracking your miles.  Join up with friends, co-workers and family to create your own healthy habit.  

All monies raised will go to the Senior Behavioral Health Unit, our brand new state of the art unit which is designed to provide stabilization and individualized care for senior adults in a safe, supportive environment.

Course Map

 

The 5K course starts about half way down the parking lot in front of Stellos Stadium.  Run from there into Mine Falls park by the skate park, follow the path and go around the gate.  Stay straight so the pond and then the canal are on your right until you reach the river bridge (Nashua High South) on your right (Mile 1). Cross over the bridge and go left on the paved path and follow it so the canal is now on your left, continue through the highway tunnel until you reach the second bridge (Whipple Street/Soifert Memorial Fields). Cross over the bridge and take a left at the flagpole and keep running so the canal is now on your left. (You are half done!)  Stay on the main path (left at fork) keeping the canal on your left.  Pass by the first bridge at Nashua High South (Mile 2), and continue back so the canal and then the pond are on your left.  Almost done, keep running back through the gate towards the skate park. The finish line will be marked across from the skate park on the sidewalk by the parking lot.  

The 10k course will circle back at the boat ramp lot before you reach the skate park to do the loop one more time. 

While there are sections of pavement, remember much of the course is on unpaved trails, keep that in mind if you are thinking of pushing a stroller.  The park will be open to the public during this event.  We ask that you use courtesy and share the trails accordingly.
