2023 MVS Super Iron Runner Series

Whether you are a competitive runner or a social runner, you can participate, and earn great MVS gear in the Merrimack Valley Striders Super Iron Runner series program. The goal of the MVS Super Iron Runner Series is to encourage all MVS athletes to participate in targeted local races that showcase the Merrimack Valley and surrounding area and show our cohesion as a team.

For the 2023 series we expect that all Striders wear an MVS branded tee, tank, long sleeve, or jacket as the outside and top layer. If it is chilly, layer appropriately, please be the ambassador for your club with your MVS branded top layer. Additional items such as MVS hat, goodr sunglasses, or other awesome accessories are to compliment your MVS top layer.

Make sure you have a current and paid membership.

We know that there are so many great races out there and we can't include them all on the series, so we are offering ONE wild card race point! In addition to the selected races listed on the series, you may earn ONE wild card race point by accomplishing ANY race.With the cancellation of the Amesbury Days 5K scheduled for June 29, the SIRS committee is replacing this race with a SECOND wild card race.

🛑 (Breaking News) 🛑 The SIRS committee is happy to add an additional chance to earn a SIRS point on November 12, 2023, at the Manchester City 5K/Relay/Half Marathon/Marathon. Register for ANY distance listed (yes, relay is approved) and run in Manchester.

Be sure to wear your MVS branded top layer on the outside and upload your picture from the race and entry information.

Run and have fun, yes, they are all live scheduled races. Some race venues may offer a virtual option, but you should choose the in-person option to earn a point.
