Merrimack Valley Striders have always encouraged Boston Marathon participation by providing enabling programs. MVS includes time-waived Boston Marathon entries, Coaching programs, and weekly hosted runs to prepare the runners.
We also provide assistance and encouragement to runners and volunteers with transportation to the starting line, and celebration of successful training for and completion of the Boston Marathon.
