GMARA is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to serve adventure racers in Vermont and the rest of the Northeast US. The club works to promote and grow the sport through a variety of activites. GMARA is made up of athletes with a variety of backgrounds and race experience levels.


GMARA was officially founded December 2003, although the club got its beginnings several years before when a group of racers based in Burlington began attending races together. The group grew from an initial nine to forty in a year. Two races were held privately for club members. The club founder met other area racers who were motivated to make the club official, and GMARA was created.
