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.

MVS Runners Selected To Run Boston


2019 Boston Numbers Awarded

The Boston Marathon Numbers committee have selected the MVS members that will be official 2019 Boston Marathon runners. 

Every year, demand is high for the limited number of time-waived bibs provided to the club.  The committee selects candidates based on club participation as well as the most compelling answers to why they want to run Boston Marathon. 
The following team mates are embarking on a long-desired journey to run in the next Boston Marathon.

Good luck, runners!  Train well!
