SVR Winter Series

Sun December 5 - Sat March 12 Winchester, VA 22601 US

It’s that time…. Winter Series is going live! 

That’s right, registration is open for a full series of 8 in-person races. For those who have participated in the Winter Series in years past we expect that this year will be mostly familiar. Still, there are some important changes and details to take note of so we encourage you to thoroughly review the series description that follows and the descriptions of each individual event. 

General Summary

Series Pricing:

Individuals - $45

Student (up to age 25) and seniors (65+) - $20

Family (up to 6 family members) - $125

Single races - $10 each (not including Event #1)

SVR Members receive a $5.00 discount on the full series registration price for individuals. Complete your membership renewal before registering for the Winter Series to make sure your member discount is applied.

Although online registration is always preferred, onsite registration for a single event will be available and will close 15 minutes before start of race. Onsite registration for the full-series is not available. Full series registration can only be done online through RunSignup. The good news is that online registration takes just a few minutes and can be done on race day. Please, still afford yourself at least 30 minutes for systems to sync and for you to collect your timing chip before the race

With the unexpected cancellation of the 2019/2020 Winter Series many competitors did not have the opportunity to return their assigned timing chips. If you still have an SVR timing chip you can drop it off at the start/finish line timing trailer at any event or just send us a message using the "Race Contact Info" link below with your name and the number printed on the chip and we'll assign it to you again for the 2021/2022 Winter Series. 

Event #1 starts at 2:00pm, all other events start at 9:30am.

Earphones, dogs and strollers are not allowed at any of the races.

This year registration for the full series will include a SVR branded snapback trucker hat. Perfect for keeping the snow off your face in the winter and sweat out of your eyes in the summer. Hats are not guaranteed to those who register after 31 December, 2021. 

During your registration for the full series you will also have the opportunity to purchase a shirt for the Berkeley 5K.

Swag will be available for collection before each race. 

Volunteers Needed!

SVR and the Winter Series is managed 100% by volunteers. Please consider volunteering to help. Volunteers are needed before, during and after each race. Many volunteer slots do not overlap with the race so it is possible to volunteer and compete. Click on the "volunteer" tab on the left side of the screen to sign up. 

Series Points & Awards 

SVR Members (membership must be established prior to 1 January, 2022) are eligible to receive awards. Age groups are calculated based on the members age on 31 December, 2021. 

After each race, runners will be assigned points based on how they finished against competitors of same gender and age group. Points are cumulative during the series. 

Awards will be given in the following categories based on each runner’s six best point scores (races).

  • Top five males & females overall
  • Top three males & females in the following age groups: 10 & under, 11-13, 14-16, 17-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 & over

A Perfect Attendance award will be presented to each SVR Member who attends all 8 events. 

Non-members may join the club at any point prior to 1 January, 2022 to become eligible. Members must complete at least five races to be eligible for awards though the required number of races may decrease with cancellations. There will be no duplication of overall and age group awards. 

Awards will be presented at the SVR Banquet on 27 March, 2022 10 April, 2022 at the Millwood Station Banquet Hall, 252 Costello Dr, Winchester, VA 22602. Please RSVP at this page 

At the SVR Banquet the board of directors will also make the following awards 

Inclement Weather

This is the Winter Series and we will run in the cold, sleet and snow. 


If the Race Director concludes that an event must be cancelled all efforts will be made to quickly communicate the change in status. The SVR page on Facebook and email blasts will be the best source of current information. 

COVID Precautions

We’re thrilled to be able to return to in-person races but some COVID precautions must still be observed and changes to the events made in consideration. As with any event please do not attend if you are not feeling well, experiencing symptoms of illness or have confirmed/possible recent exposure. Most events will have a limited selection of post-race food and drink options and we expect to modify the routes and building access of some events. Check the SVR Facebook page and event page on RunSignup before the event for any changes and updates that may be required throughout the series.
