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!
