Event Details

The 27th 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. This years race will (like our races since 2021) will start and finish on the Merrimack High School track
