Merrimack Valley Striders are excited to present the Super Iron Runner Series Program for 2021! Our goal is to encourage participation for all club members and promote team spirit within the club as we wait out end the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Super Iron Series Committee has created the slate of Super Iron Runner Series races for 2021. The continuing Covid-19 pandemic constraints influenced the decision process as well as the participation rules. Adjustments have been made to simplify the check in procedure from last year's mid-season pivot to virtual races.
All races will be virtual with flexible distances 5K or greater at a safe venue of your choice. There will be three participation award levels that will be dependent on the number of events completed. A new requirement common to all levels will be a trail race 5K distance or greater. Level 2 and 3 will add longer distances in both Youth and Adult age categories.
The important changes to note:
Links for each event registration are on the MVS event calendar as well as on the Super Iron Runner Series page. Registration includes a Covid-19 waiver agreement per MVS executive board consent. The check-in form includes attachments to allow the committee to validate all entries for SIRS points.
Please see the MVS Super Iron Runner Series for more info.
Let's get out there and make as much fun we can have (safely) in 2021!
MVS usually begins our weekly pub runs about now, but we, like every other group, are required to change our plans that involve public gatherings.
So, we are suggesting Plan B: Virtual Pub Runs! On each Thursday night at 6:30-ish, you can run the approximate Stachy's distance (about 3.4 miles) in any locale. You are invited to share your run and upload a selfie and a "beerie" with a check-in link.
