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 Canadian Tire's "Jumpstart Program". Jumpstart is a charitable program that helps kids in financial need participate in organized sports and recreation such as soccer, dance, hockey and swimming. Canadian Tire will match every dollar donated from the proceeds of the Merritt Country Run. All funds raised in Merritt stay in Merritt.
