Club Announcements

Tuesday Night Track: Looking back at my notes I audaciously stated that Spring is here and we would be heading back to the track indefinitely. Since then we have gotten two snow storms sooo I guess that’s on me, sorry for the jinx. Anyway I tempt the devil once more and say that as of now our TNT workouts will proceed on  Hanover High School Track though we may move to the Dartmouth Track if allowed. Keep an eye on your email to stay up to date! 

April Runner’s Night Out will be April 9th, at Hanover Ramuntos! Come hang out with your pal’s after Tuesday Night Track and discuss your Eclipse experience!

Spring Couch to 5k is starting up April 20th!

Volunteer Opportunities

In case you missed it we’re doing a 2024 UVRC VOLUNTEER CHALLENGE see the March Newsletter for full details! 

Upcoming Opportunities

The Mount Washington Road Race is in need of volunteers! Historically the MWRR crew assigns volunteer positions by club/group so we all focus on one task e.g. one club does water hand out, one club does check in, etc. We haven’t been assigned a task yet but in the past the UVRC has been instrumental in keeping the flow of traffic going and managing the parking which requires a lot of friendly faces to keep everything working smoothly! In general we also need volunteers to get our racers down the mountain! If you’re interested in volunteering please reach out to or signup with this link

The Covered Bridges Half Marathon is on the horizon! Didn’t get in through registration but are itching to take part in one of the most beautiful and sought after races in New England? Well good news! The UVRC is looking for pacers for the race! As a pacer you run the race at a fixed pace to achieve a set goal time and serve as a beacon to your fellow runners who are trying to meet or beat that goal time. I speak from experience when I say it is one of the most rewarding activities I have participated in (apart from being your President) as nothing compares to the joy of helping other people achieve the goals they’ve worked so hard for! It’s time to start getting in pacing shape so reach out to if you interested in being a pacer!
