MVS Events Impacted By COVID-19 Public Health Concerns

Alan St.Germain - 3/15/2020

March and April Events Rescheduled or Cancelled

If you haven't started, it's time to hunker down.  We all need to comply with the advice from our public health officials to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus before it becomes an overwhelming health crisis.

In that spirit, the Executive Board and the Operations Committee have cancelled the following near term club events: 
  • Monthly General meeting 3/25,
  • All hosted runs for March are canceled,
  • The post marathon April 20th party and the bus to Boston has been postponed and will be rescheduled in September,
  • Coaching sessions (assessed weekly by our coaches.)
As more information becomes available, we’ll keep you posted.

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.
