Goffstown Gallop

Welcome to the 44th Annual Goffstown Gallop!

The Gallop, which is now in its 44th year, is named in honor of David French who served as recreation director for 32 years before his retirement in 2010. It is a 5.2-mile race, with various inclines and obstacles that offers a great challenge. This long-standing event creates a vast sense of camaraderie between residents and non-resident of Goffstown. Whether you are a first-year runner or a returning participant, we know you will feel Goffstown’s welcome on race day. Join us this June for the 44th year!
