Welcome to Merrimack Valley Striders

Merrimack Valley Striders was founded in 1979 with the mission to encourage and enhance running at all levels.  Every member of MVS is respected as an athlete: whether young or old, capable of winning races or further back in the pack, seasoned marathoner, or a member who is simply seeking to improve his or her health. 
Though we were founded in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts -- north of Boston, south of New Hampshire – we have grown and our reach touches runners as far away as Florida and California.

Feaster Five Success!

The 28th annual Feaster Five went off without a hitch!  The success of the event is attributed to the great work of our volunteers, generous contributions from our many sponsors, the skilled race management by DMSE, the well-developed technology of, and cooperation by Mother Nature for the cool dry conditions.
Early information shows that we had a modest increase in participation this year compared to last year.  This is good news in a year that road races have been reporting a 5-15% downturn in participation.

Merrimack Valley Striders wish all a Happy Thanksgiving!
