Weather plan:

If it is raining heavily - no practice.

If the threat of strong storms is close - no practice.

If it is lightly raining - we will run but dress accordingly.

If it is not raining - we will practice as planned.

Safety, productivity, and a fun environment are our main concerns.

Please also do what is best for your child and family in less than ideal conditions. 

As always, practices and meets are optional.

 

Merton Area Running Club was started in Merton, Wisconsin in the spring of 2006.  The Merton Area Running Club is here to give youth athletes ages 6-14, in the Lake Country area, a chance to experience the wonderful world of running.  MARC is a club that participates in outdoor track and field, indoor track and field, and cross country.  This club was a huge success in its first several years, because we were able to give over 100 children the exhilarating and challenging experience of running track and field and cross country. 


Merton is located just north of Delafield, WI and just East of Hartland, WI.  Merton is a feeder school to Arrowhead Unified School District.  Merton Area Running Club is a youth running club that is registered and certified by USATF as our governing body.

Great Quotes:

If it is important enough to you, you will find a way.  If it is not, you will find an excuse.

Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. 
- Theodore Roosevelt


Don't Be Upset by the Results You Didn't Get with the Work You Didn't Do

Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.
-  Helen Keller

There is power in people who dream big and who try hard.

Pain is Temporary, Pride is Forever

Success isn't given, it's earned.

Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I can do what others can't.
