*****As of January 2, 2017, we no longer offer Option 1 for registration to sign up for the entire Series. You must now sign up for individual races and you will not be eligible for Winter Series awards unless you became an SVR member prior to Jan. 2. We would love to have you come out and run the individual races but just know that the WS awards are only for people that became members prior to January 2 and have run the minimum of five races to be eligible. We still recommend that you sign up to be a 2017 member so that you get the member discount for the individual races.*******

We have another great year organized and hope to see you out there running in the cold and snow! New for this year is a “Let It Snow” long sleeve tech shirt for runners that sign up for the whole series. The new  logo  was designed by Duane Williamson. Fantastic!

SVR Statement about Headphones, Strollers, Dogs at Our Races

Shenandoah Valley Runners promotes health and fitness through running by sponsoring more than 30 races each year. It is important to us that our races are safe and fair.
In order to have our races, we need the insurance provided by our parent club, the Road Runners of America. After lengthy discussions, the SVR Board has decided to follow the RRCA recommendations that strongly advise against allowing strollers, dogs and headphones at races.
Unlike running alone with a stroller or headphones, races often involve hundreds of runners. They run on unfamiliar roads open to traffic with road hazards such as potholes, loose gravel, blind turns, distracted drivers, narrow shoulders, and given that this is the Shenandoah Valley, major hills. 
While SVR tries to make our race courses as safe as possible through good course management, marshaling, and marking, we believe that runners have a responsibility for their own safety and the safety of the runners around them by paying attention and running without distractions such as headphones.
We are a community of runners. We try to have the safest races possible. We hope that runners will come to our races for the camaraderie, competition, and fun, but we ask that runners please leave their strollers, dogs and headphones at home.

Our Mission

SVR’s mission is to promote and encourage running, including the fostering of amateur competition and the education of the community on the benefit of physical fitness and sports, regardless of age, gender or physical condition. To accomplish its mission, SVR holds races and social runs, awards scholarships, sponsors speakers and coordinates with other agencies advocating running, jogging,or walking as a means of physical fitness.
