2020 Upper Valley Running Series


The UVRS is a series of existing road races in the Upper Valley. The goal is to encourage participation and competition in Upper Valley road races, with recognition for performance and participation for runners. Runners who are members of the club at the time of the race do not need to register separately for the UVRS series; simply participating in the road races through the standard registration process qualifies a runner in the series. However, to score, you must be a member of the Upper Valley Running Club! More information on joining the club can be found here.

2020 Series:

Please note that date and times of races are tentative and can change as each race approaches. We will try to keep this page as current as possible as we get more information.

You can sign up for the entire series via the club. This option ensures you are signed up for each race and provides an overall discount to each race. 2020 series registration is available now!

Series Registration (Lebanon Recreation)

New for 2020! The series preview race, the Red Zone 5K, will count as a race towards your “Series Finisher” status, though it will not be eligible to score points in the age group standings. Red Zone 5K results here. In addition, for races with two distances, both races will be eligible for “Finisher” status (note that only the designated race is eligible for point scoring).
