Celebrate Merrimack’s 275th with 2.75 race

MERRIMACK – On April 2, the town of Merrimack will officially celebrate its 275th birthday. As part of the town’s year-long celebration, the Parks & Recreation Department invites locals to join them at 10 a.m. on May 15 for this historic event by participating in a 2.75 mile “Not Quite A 5K Run/Walk” in celebration of Merrimack’s history.

This family friendly road race is perfect for both avid runners and recreational walkers alike. The relatively flat course begins and ends in the heart of historic downtown Merrimack at Merrimack Town Hall. The race will be professionally timed by North Star Timing and will employ a “time trial start” format that will facilitate “social distancing.”
