UVRC Committee Membership
By: Matt Sherman
Are you interested in getting more involved with the running club? Have you ever wondered what sort of opportunities there are to do so? I know when I first joined the club I was curious what happened “behind the curtain” after I started running more at TNT and the Saturday morning runs. I enjoyed running with all the wonderful members of the club, but wanted to see if there was more I could do.
The short answer to these questions is that yes, there are a number of committees within the UVRC that support the goals and initiatives of the club! We are always looking for enthusiastic and engaged runners to support these groups.
And what exactly are these groups and what do they do?! The committees range from a social committee to a volunteer committee that engage the running community to groups that help organize the newsletter, the website and the Upper Valley Running Series. See below for some more details!
The Social Committee organizes events such as Pub Night, the Annual Picnic and Annual Banquet, and the Jingle Bell Run.
The Volunteer Committee organizes club volunteers for events such as VT50, CBHM, MWRR, and the UVRS.
Upper Valley Running Series (UVRS)
The UVRS Committee organizes our local road running series.
New Hampshire Grand Prix (NHGP)
The NHGP committee represents the UVRS in the planning and coordinating of races involved in the state wide racing series and engages club participation.
Couch to 5k
This group consists of a coach and members that support by joining the walking, run/walking or running groups participating in the Couch to 5k.
Mount Washington Road Race (MWRR)
