As Juma Ikangaa, a Tanzanian marathon runner once said, “To win means nothing without the will to prepare.”  It has always been the mission of the Middletown Athletic Club to promote running as a family-oriented activity and to promote youth running.  To enhance our mission, we offer a $1000 scholarship to a deserving senior in hopes that it will encourage him/her to continue to develop as a runner and help prepare in the education necessary for all aspects of life.   You may contact your coach or guidance counselor for a copy of the scholarship application or you may obtain one at the following link:  2018_MAC_Scholarship_Application.pdf
