Description

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 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 - $55

Student (up to age 25) and seniors (65+) - $30

Family (up to 6 family members) - $135 Must be SVR member to register 

Single races - $15 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. http://svrunners.org/join-svr/

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

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 2022/2023 Winter Series. 

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

To keep our insurance provider happy we can not allow earphones, dogs or strollers at any of the races.

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 

Runners must be a 2023 SVR Club Member to receive an award. Membership must be established prior to 1 January, 2023.

http://svrunners.org/join-svr/

After each race, runners are awarded points based on how they finished in three categories; Overall, Gender and Age Group. 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 results of 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.

  • Top five males & females overall
  • Top three males & females in the following age groups: 10 & under, 11-13, 14-16, 17-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80 & over
    *Age groups are calculated based on the runners age on 31 December, 2022

    **SVR reserves the right to combine age groups if there are insufficient runners in an age group to make it competitive
    ***There will be no duplication of overall and age group awards. 

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 15 April, 2023 at the Millwood Station Banquet Hall, 252 Costello Dr, Winchester, VA 22602. 

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. 

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.
