|Throughout the year the GMAA will enter major New England Races
as a team. Races include the New England Cross Country
Championships and the 7 USATF-NE grand prix races.
When races are more than 100 miles away, we rent a van (or vans) to travel together to the race. For races with early start times more than 100 miles away, we also organize hotel room blocks. Runners are responsible for their own room cost, but room sharing makes for a very affordable option. After you've done two USATF Team Races a year, GMAA covers your entry fee for the rest of the year.
To run for the GMAA, both your GMAA membership and USATF membership must be up to date. Then just fill out the interest form on the race page, register through our Paypal site and watch for updates from the Team Racing coordinator on departure times.
While only the fastest finishers score (3 in each division for longer races, 5 in shorter races), everyone is welcome and entries are almost always unlimited. Team Racing is a fun way to get to know other runners, see new places, work on or show off your speed and enjoy a weekend.
