The Merrimack Valley Striders is a running club that was founded in 1979 with the mission to encourage and enhance running at all levels




Welcome to Merrimack Valley Striders

Merrimack Valley Striders was founded in 1979 with the mission to encourage and enhance running at all levels. 

Every member of MVS is respected as an athlete: whether young or old, capable of winning races or further back in the pack, seasoned marathoner, or a member who is simply seeking to improve his or her health.

Though we were founded in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts -- north of Boston, south of New Hampshire – we have grown and our reach touches runners as far away as Florida and California.

MVS Super Iron Runner Series for 2022

The Super Iron Runner Series is back to live and in-person races this for 2022.   The committee has chosen a slate of 14 possible races throughout the year.  As usual, there are three levels of participation to inspire adult and youth members to earn swag to commemorate their accomplishments.

The series begins on New Year's Day with a choice of venues and race distances.
