2013 Upper Valley Running Series

UVRS_logo_final_forweb
The 2013 Upper Valley Running Series is done, but below is all the information about the series.

Goal:

Encourage participation and competition in Upper Valley road races.

What is it?

A series made up of existing road races in the Upper Valley region. Recognition is granted in 2 categories:

  1. The fastest runners in each age-group category are recognized.
  2. Runners who participate in every race in the UVRS are recognized.

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.

2013 Series:

The 2013 series runs from March to July:

* The Tuck Run for the Kids has a 5K and a 10K, but only the 5K is included in the UVRS series scoring.
