Winter Series Inclement Weather Policy:

  • Yes, there will be inclement weather
  • It will be cold, it will sleet, it will snow.
  • We run anyway unless there’s ice
  • A race may be cancelled at the absolute last minute on race day due to developing conditions impossible to predict until the snow/sleet/ice begins to fall
  • Call the individual race directors if you are unsure about the scheduling of a race
  • We will try to  post a cancellation on Facebook and/or the website

Time to update your club membership and get registered for this year’s Winter Series!

This year we will be using to sign up for club membership and for Winter Series registration. You must sign up for club membership before signing up for the Winter Series to get the club discount. When you register, please put today’s date as membership start date. Click here for the club membership link and get signed up! And while you have your credit card out, register for the Winter Series too! Please be sure to read the fine print (e.g. inclement weather policy, details on how the races are scored in the Series) found in the Winter Series Information link in the header bar above. Click here for a .pdf of the Winter Series flyer.

Note: SVR membership runs on the calendar year so except for lifetime members, everyone needs to renew membership at this time. If you signed up for membership over the last few weeks, we are in the process of carrying those memberships over to RunSignUp for 2015 as part of our transition from using RaceIt to RunSignUp.

If you have any problems/questions with the club membership or want to be sure your very recent membership done through RaceIt carried over, contact Michelle VanHorn at Problems with registering for the Winter Series or questions not answered in the Winter Series Information above? Contact Winter Series Director Jamey Walters at We expect there will be some glitches as we migrate to RunSignUp, so please let us know if you are having a problem or don’t understand.

While you are waiting for the Winter Series to start, check out our calendar above or the right sidebar for the upcoming SVR sponsored races. The Berryville Turkey Trot races are a great way to warm up for the Series. Hope to see you at the races!
