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.

Register for Autumn Track Sessions!


After training through a (mostly) hot and dry summer, our eager MVS runners look forward to sharpening their fitness to take on that autumn target race.  The MVS Fall Coaching Programs help each participant improve their speed and endurance to get to the starting line in peak form without injury.
The Fall Coaching programs include the standard track sessions (Tuesday morning or evening) with options for weekly tempo runs on Thursdays, as well as Adaptive Training Plans.  The popular MVS Montessori coaching program is the other choice, with sessions led by Coach Deanna Thursdays at noon and 6PM.
The Fall Coaching Programs run for 12 weeks, beginning August 30, 2016.
