Merritt helped orchestrate races with the world’s most popular adventure race of all time, the Eco Challenge, in New Zealand and Fiji. He then went on to be the Logistics Director in Tahoe, Volunteer Director in the San Juan Islands, and Director of Operations in Moab, Utah for The Primal Quest. Since then, Merritt moved on to develop his own race in Costa Rica that pulled elements of an adventure race, but simplified the experience so that just about anyone could be a part of it. After three successful years in Costa Rica, he has moved on to introduce his concept to South and Central America in Ecuador, Guatemala, Panama, Peru, Chile, Spain, and Ireland. He’s ecstatic to be headed back to where it all started – New Zealand!
