“This is the 5th year we are hosting the Run United Race here in Merrill,” says Paul Kienitz, Riverside Athletic Club owner. “Our race is one way to help more people become involved in fitness and to support the good work Merrill Area United Way does for our community. We are proud to have people coming from all over the state as well as neighboring states to participate in the race.
“We are excited to be offering a new course this year that will run through our beautiful downtown area.” says Kienitz. “In addition, we are going to be starting the race at 8 a.m. and we are going to have Chip Timing this year. With all of these changes and updates, we know we will have a successful event.”

It is not too late for other businesses to jump in and sponsor the event as well. Any business that is interested in partnering with us, should call Riverside at 715-536-2481 and we will be glad to explain how you can get involved. We are looking forward to a great event and raising money for the Merrill Area.”
