Men of Marian History

Since its inception in 1964, the Men of Marian has shared Marian Catholic High School’s mission “to develop students spiritually, morally, academically, and socially.” Through its efforts and legacy, Marian has been able to create a tradition of academic and athletic excellence.  The Men of Marian's purpose is to provide the school with the necessary financial support to offset the costs of both academic and athletic programs the school may not otherwise be able to provide. Its efforts have been able to provide Marian’s athletic programs with transportation, insurance, sports medicine, and uniforms, and have been able to provide academic programs with educational tools and resources, and students with financial aid and support.

Course Modification

Since we use farm land for our course, we needed to make a modification due to the farmer's crop rotation. This adjustment makes the course much simpler when exiting the woods. See the attached picture, or check out the registration website for the details. We will have this section well marked, have proper signage, and a race volunteer available to give you directions while on the course!

In Memory of Lisa Napoletano

Lisa Napoletano was a Freshman this past year at Marian and a member of the Cross Country and Track and Field teams. Early this March, she was involved in an unfortunate ATV accident and passed away from her injuries. The Marian Community, Cross Country Team, and Track and Field Team was blessed to know her and have her in our lives, even for such a short period of time. Part of this event is dedicated to her memory and the impact she had on her school and her teams. In order to honor her, her family has set up a scholarship fund and non-profit organization "Lisa Napoletano-Running with the Angels" honoring her memory that is awarded to a member of the Cross Country Team, Track and Field Team, or is active in Snowboarding and that display strong team spirit and values academics. This option allows you to donate towards the scholarship fund in her memory as she Runs with the Angels.
