The Upper Valley Running Series

UVRS_logo_802VT_v2
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 do not need to register separately for the UVRS series; simply participating in the road races through their registration procedure qualifies a runner in the series.

Prizes:

For the few, proud Series Finishers (run at least 6 of the 8 races in the series), we present a “UVRS 2016 Finisher” prize. The Finisher prize for 2016 includes a free, guaranteed entry to the 2017 Covered Bridges Half Marathon, as well as some other sweet swag.

Age group prize winners (top 3 in each age group) receive a separate award.

The series award ceremony will take place at UVRC event at a date and location to be announced after the completion of the series (non-UVRC folks are welcome for the awards ceremony).  If you are unable to attend the award ceremony, contact Dave Sullivan to arrange a pick up of your award.

Announcing the 2016 Courtney Marshall Award, in honor of the late UVRC runner Courtney Marshall, who inspired us all with his dedication, cheerful disposition, and inclusive attitude. The award will be presented to the Upper Valley Running Club member who runs the most UVRS races in 2016. In the likely event of a tie, the tiebreaker is the number of New Hampshire Grand Prix races run for UVRC in 2016. If there is still a tie after that, the prize is split between the qualifiers. The prize is $100 towards shoes purchased at Omer and Bob’s in Lebanon.
