About This Activity

The 22nd Annual Merrimack Sparkler 5K Run/Walk hosted by the Merrimack Road Runners Booster Club  is held every year on the 4th of July with all profits benefiting the Merrimack High and Middle School Track and Cross Country programs.  The Booster's Club is a volunteer organization that proudly supports all running programs in Merrimack, both at the Middle School and High School levels. The Merrimack Sparkler 5K is the largest fundraiser of the year. All money raised goes directly to the kids participating in cross country, indoor track and outdoor track and field. With the past support of our community the Booster's Club has been able to give money towards coaching stipends, clothing stipends, replacement of equipment and travel expenses. The Booster Club also gives out (5) $500 scholarships at the end of the year to graduating seniors. The race starts and finishes at the Merrimack YMCA 6 Henry Clay Drive, Merrimack, NH. The Kids Fun Run is free and starts at 7:40 am and the 5 k begins at 8:00 am sharp.    Entry Fees on or before June 15, 2019 adults $22.50, youth (13 & younger) $17.00; After June 15, 2019: Adults $28.00, youth (13 & younger) $22.50.
