Swag
SVR is increasing our efforts to create races that are both affordable and environmentally sustainable. With that in mind, registration for the full series will include a four-piece set of custom RaceDots and a collapsable and reusable drinking cup which will reduce our need to purchase and provide safety pins and single use plastic bottles. Swag is only guaranteed for the first 650 registered runners. 
Swag will be available for collection before each race. 
Volunteers Needed!
SVR and the Winter Series is managed 100% by volunteers. Please consider volunteering to help. Volunteers are needed before, during and after each race. Many volunteer slots do not overlap with the race so it is possible to volunteer and compete. Click on the volunteer tab on the left side of the screen to sign up. 
Series Points Awards 
Runners must be a 2024 SVR Club Member to receive an award. Membership must be established prior to January 01, 2024.

After each race, runners are awarded points based on their overall finish and their age group finish (ranked against other runners of the same listed gender). In most cases, runners will have unique scores in each category. Runners can receive up to 500 points for each race in each category. The first place runner receives 500 points, second place receives 499 points, third place 498, etc. A runners cumulative score will reflect their top 6 finishes in the series thus the maximum score any runner can achieve in each category at the end of the series is 3000. Runners must complete at least 5 races to be eligible for awards though the required number of races may decrease with cancellations. 
Awards will be given in the following categories.
Top five males females overallTop three males females in the following age groups: 10 under, 11-13, 14-16, 17-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80 over *Age groups are calculated based on the runners age on December 31, 2023**SVR reserves the right to combine age groups if there are insufficient runners in an age group to make it competitive***There will be no duplication of overall and age group awards.
