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 Area Running Club is a youth running club that is registered and certified by USATF as our governing body.
