History of the Scholarship Cross Country 5K
The Scholarship Cross Country 5K is one of GMAA's younger races. It was started by Rick Blount with help from Tom Weaver. Rick advertised the race with the theme, "You mean you live in Vermont and don't run in the woods?" Red Rocks Park in South Burlington provides an ideal course for a summer cross country race - fully shaded with paths that are wide with good footing. There are even a couple nice views of Lake Champlain. The race usually attracts many teenagers preparing for the upcoming fall cross country season.

This race is used by the GMAA to help raise money for its scholarship fund. Annually, the GMAA provides two scholarships to graduating seniors who plan to attend college. In 2003 the scholarships were $500 each.
