The Merritt Country Run has a race for everyone! Want to get your kids involved but not sure they're ready to tackle the 5km? No worries! We have a Twice Around the Track option thats perfect for those who enjoy running but are not into the longer distances!
The Twice Around the Track option is 400m long and located at Voght Park. Voght Park is also where the 5km, 10km, and half marathon will be starting and finishing so after you finish your race you can cheer on other runners as they cross the finish line! The Country Run Expo featuring many local businesses will also be located at Voght Park so there will be lots to check out!

The Merritt Country Run has chosen to support Camp Tulahead this year. Camp Tulahead is an amazing summer experience for children’s and teens. Camps have a positive impact on young lives. They help children grow, teach lifelong skills and give them all kinds of tools to succeed in life. Camp Tulahead offers life lessons beyond the classroom and the value of playtime to appreciating nature and building confidence and leadership skills.
