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.

Register For 2023 MVS Spring Coaching 

MVS Coaching Program is making a seamless transition from the Winter Indoor Program to the Spring Program.  The program is offered to all active members and will run for ten weeks, starting March 23,2023.   We continue to offer one or two sessions per week consisting of a Tuesday evening track session or a Thursday evening Hills, Drills, and Strengthening Skills session.   The program cost is $100 for 1-Session/week  and $165 for 2-Sessions/week.

Morning options for track and strengthening programs will be held if there is enough demand.  A question in the registration will help us determine whether those sessions will be offered.

Coach Sharon Johnson provides workouts that are designed to improve fitness for runners at all levels.

See the Coaching Programs page for more details about the programs and the registration link.
