The Shenandoah Valley Runner electronic newsletter “Steppin’ Out” is published four times a year, bringing news, results, announcements, race flyers, and running related articles to SVR members in the Shenandoah Valley and beyond. We also send out a shorter email “Fast Track” periodically as needed.  We no longer send out paper newsletters. If you are a member and are having a problem receiving the email newsletters, please contact  editor Colleen Snyder at

You also can find us on Facebook under Shenandoah Valley Runners. Head over there and “like” us!

SVR members may submit articles, race reports, or other news to the editor for inclusion, and race directors may request that their race flyers be included in the newsletter by contacting the Colleen Snyder at or 540-636-7785. Photos from races are particularly welcome. If you have any questions about the newsletter, inclusion in the newsletter, or suggestions for things to cover in the newsletter, please contact Colleen Snyder. (Inclusion of any material is at the discretion of the editor.)

Race Directors: Please contact the editor as soon as you decide you would like to have your race information in the e-newsletter. It is the responsibility of the race director to be aware of the deadline schedule listed below so that a race can be included in the newsletter in a timely manner.
