One of the last items on the agenda for the Heritage Classic Run has been ticked off. The United Counties of Leeds & Grenville has approved closing roads on the route of this year’s Run in Merrickville. St. Lawrence Street and County Road 16, both county roads, will be closed along the route of the three runs taking place on Saturday, April 27.
The Heritage Classic includes a 2km, 5km and 10km run, and people of all ages are encouraged to walk, run or roll through the Village and enjoy a morning of being outdoors. “We have everyone from babies in strollers to the elderly using walkers,” says race director Lori Reynolds. “We want people to be exposed to being active and moving.”
The 2019 Merrickville Heritage Classic will be held on Saturday, April 27, starting at 8 am. Registration is now open on the Run Merrickville website. Participation in the 2km Blockhouse run costs $25, the 5km Canal run costs $50, and the 10km Jewel of the Rideau run costs $60. Registration fees cover the participation medal, bib and a t-shirt, a new addition this year.
Registration, route maps and every other details you might possibly need, are all available on the Heritage Run website at: http://www.run-merrickville.ca.
