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.
Summer Coaching Programs for Youth and Adults
The MVS Coaching programs are expanded for summer 2019.
In addition to the adult track and strength programs provided by Coaches Sharon Johnson and Lisa Corbett from Breakaway Triathlon and Cycling, we are also offering a youth program tailored for those middle-school to early collegiate students who are preparing for their school's upcoming cross country season.
MVS has partnered with Coach Fred Doyle's XC Project along with assistant coaches from area high school track teams.
