2K, 5K, and 10K Runs in Merrickville

APRIL 25, 2020  8:00 am start

(staggered start: 10K at 8:00 am followed by 5K and then 2K)



We would like to thank everyone for their support of our annual Merrickville Heritage Classic Run normally held the last Saturday in April.

Due to the Covid 19 restrictions, the Run Merrickville committee made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 run.   We will try again next year.  We are already looking forward to being back in 2021!

Stay safe and stay healthy.

From  the Run Merrickville organizing committee.


Status of the 2020 Merrickville Heritage Classic:

March 30, 2020:  After much discussion, the Run Merrickville committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 run.  This means that refunds will be issued for the run registration fee for all registrants.  Race Roster’s processing fee paid at registration will not be refunded.    Those participants who pre-paid for t-shirts and hats will have that money refunded as well. 

Refunds will be issued through Race Roster.  We would like to thank Race Roster for waiving the $1.95 refund fee for each registration and appreciate their support.

Refunds will be made back to the card used for the initial payment.  We anticipate the refund process to take 5-14 business days.

Looking ahead we are expecting to be able to hold our run in 2021.  Details will be shared later in the year once they are available.

We thank you for your support of our run and we hope everyone stays healthy and safe in the months ahead.
