Middletown Athletic Club
(serving the Middletown-Odessa-Townsend, Delaware Running Community since 2002)
"That's the thing about running: your greatest runs are rarely measured by racing success. They are moments in time when running allows you to see how wonderful your life is." - Kara Goucher
The Middletown Athletic Club (MAC) was formed in 2002 by several long-time runners to promote running as a social and competitive activity. MAC is an officially recognized member of the Road Runners Clubs of America (RCCA).
MAC's goals include promoting running as a family-oriented activity as well as to promote youth running. MAC also fields several competitive teams in area races. Whether you are new to running or a seasoned competitor, youth athlete or a Master, run for health and fitness or train to race a marathon, MAC offers something for everyone.
MAC sponsors several recurring club runs for runners of all paces and goals, as well as several running-related social events and races each year. The two biggest of these events, the Race to Find a Cure 5K held in early June and the Olde Tyme Peach Festival 5K held in mid-August, draw a combined 450+ runners. Check our EVENTS page for more details on the MAC activities.
As a not-for-profit organization, proceeds from MAC membership dues and sponsored events are used to award two $750 scholarships annually to area high school cross country athletes. MAC is a great way to join your neighbors and enjoy the simple sport of running. Please consider joining us!
