Online pre-registration will remain open until 8:30 am of race day. We cannot do membership or whole series registration at the registration table. You must do that online prior to the race!!! Same day on-site registration (only available for an individual race) and chip pick-up closes promptly at 9:15 am so get there early to get your chip or to register the same day for an individual race. All races start at 9:30 am.

Please also note that there are no refunds and we do not allow headphones, dogs or strollers at our races!

The Shenandoah Valley Winter series is an 8 race series of races in and around Winchester, VA. The first race is the first weekend in December and there is a race every two weeks. These races are a great way to stay in shape over the winter and the cheapest 8 races you will ever run. All are chip timed using our club Ipico chip timing. Register for the whole series today. This option is only available until December 19th (just after the second race)

This registration is to register for the ENTIRE Winter Series. Yes, ALL eight races in one shot for one low price! Will cost you much more to register each week, so do us all a favor and register for the whole series, which is less than the cost of ONE typical 5k.

By registering here today, all you need to do is show up on race day and pick up your race number. How convenient. No money to bring each week, no hassle.

Please note the following:
1. This registration is for a LIMITED time only and will close December 19th (just after the second winter series race). After that, you have to register for each and every race. Bummer. 
2. As always, your age for the Winter Series is calculated as of December 31st. So no emails when your age appears to be wrong on results after January 1st. It is the Winter Series Points thing. Have to set your birthday somewhere.
3. More than one registration to do? No problem. At the end of your first registration the system will ask you for more registrations.
4. As for any race, no refunds. Races are held rain or shine. (It is only $36.00 for 8 races at the member price, that is less than a single 5k!)

ENTRY FEES:
SVR Members: $36.00 for ALL 8 races. (Note to get this rate you must update your club registration FIRST here on RunSignUp). Please note: It is easier to back out of this race registration, update your club registration, then come back and register for the Winter Series. Just sayin.
Non-Members: $45.00 (so take a minute and join and save some money!)
Family Rate: $125.00 Non member family, $100 SVR Member family (up to 6 family members (NOTE: that this is the multi person option below. Discount is taken at checkout!! YOU MUST RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP FOR 2017 BEFORE YOU CAN DO THIS!!!@!!!!!!)

Student/Senior over 65 Rate: $20.00 SVR member,  (yes for ALL 8 races!)

If you decide not to take advantage of this generous offer, you can register for each individual race (really, why would you do that?), just select each race below. Price for each race is: $10.00.
