As Juma Ikangaa, a Tanzanian marathon runner once said, “To win means nothing without the will to prepare.” It is the mission of the Middletown Athletic Club (MAC) 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 them to continue to develop as an athlete and help prepare them with the education necessary for all aspects of life.
