  1. I’m one of three locals who’d like to rejoin SVrunners but your registration page (who’s raceit?) is not working. One of my fellow runners says it’d be easier to register for Boston than join SVR !
    Seriously, in the past I always enjoyed the SV newsletter.
    Can’t you email an SVR membership form to us?

      • Not helpful if you can’t be more specific about what trouble you had. We have had 90+ successful registrations with no reported issues and this is the same registration form used for a couple years. Happy to fix issues if there are any. We did add the list of races as suggested previously. So you are saying you did get registered for Obamacare?

        • My SVR membership renewal and winter series registration was flawless via raceit. I’m still waiting on my Obama phone and Obamacare. Jimmy Carter may be sending me a block of cheese for Christmas too!

  2. I’d like to sign up for the Winter Series races, but I see only one listed (Dec. 7th) on the “schedule” pages. I wonder how many folks will sign up for the whole series of races when we don’t know when they are?! Please advise……Jim

  3. Thanks for the comment. We will add some additional info on this page for the races, but in the meanwhile, you can click the Winter Series Flyer link (middle of the page), or go to the registration page which also has the whole schedule. The calendar on the main page only lists upcoming races so doesn’t show the entire schedule. See you at the Winter Series!

  4. If I sign up for membership for SVR now (Jan 1- 12/31/14) do I get the discounted rates for all the Winter seriers races including this weekends’ ? Or will the discount only be for races after Jan 1st and the rest of the series?
    Jim

    • If you join now, your discount can be used for the this weekend’s race. It should be less confusing if you also resister for the race(s) online.
