Welcome to winter! Grab your hat and gloves because it's time to run!
That’s right, registration is open for a full series of 8 in-person races. For those who participated in last year's Winter Series we expect that this year will be mostly familiar. Still, there are some important changes and details to take note of. We encourage you to thoroughly review the series description that follows and the descriptions of each individual event.
Full Series Pricing:
Single Race Pricing (not including Event #1):
Full series registration can only be done online through RunSignup. Registration for the full Winter Series is only available to club members. Must be a club member to receive a Winter Series award. Please complete your membership enrollment/renewal before registering for the Winter Series.
Consider establishing a Lifetime Membership and securing your eligibility into future running of the Winter Series. https://runsignup.com/Club/VA/Winchester/ShenandoahValleyRunners
Event #1 starts at 2:00pm, all other events start at 9:30am.
As a Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) affiliated club we agree to follow their recommendation to not allow earphones, pets or strollers in any of our races.
SVR reserves the right to alter the event schedule at any point.
SVR is increasing our efforts to create races that are both affordable and environmentally sustainable. With that in mind, registration for the full series will include a four-piece set of custom RaceDots and a collapsable and reusable drinking cup which will reduce our need to purchase and provide safety pins and single use plastic bottles. Swag is only guaranteed for the first 650 registered runners.
Swag will be available for collection before each race.
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
Runners must be a 2024 SVR Club Member to receive an award. Membership must be established prior to January 01, 2024.
After each race, runners are awarded points based on their overall finish and their age group finish (ranked against other runners of the same listed gender). In most cases, runners will have unique scores in each category. Runners can receive up to 500 points for each race in each category. The first place runner receives 500 points, second place receives 499 points, third place 498, etc. A runner's cumulative score will reflect their top 6 finishes in the series thus the maximum score any runner can achieve in each category at the end of the series is 3000. Runners must complete at least 5 races to be eligible for awards though the required number of races may decrease with cancellations.
Awards will be given in the following categories.
A Perfect Attendance award will be presented to each SVR Member who attends all 8 events.
Awards will be presented at the SVR Banquet on April 07, 2024 at the Millwood Station Banquet Hall, 252 Costello Dr, Winchester, VA 22602.
At the SVR Banquet the club's Board of Directors will also present the following awards
This is the Winter Series and we will run in the cold, sleet, and snow.
YOU ARE THE BEST JUDGE OF WHETHER OR NOT IT IS SAFE TO TRAVEL TO AND FROM AND RUN IN AN EVENT
If the Race Director concludes that an event must be canceled 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.
