Since 1976, the Green Mountain Athletic Association has been identified with running in Vermont. GMAA members, about 400 strong, span all ages and abilities, from children through runners in their seventies, walkers to Olympic Trials qualifiers, all united in their enjoyment of the sport. GMAA means different things to each of its members, but it has always meant some of the same things to all of its members, including friendship, good health, competition, and good fun through running.
GMAA sponsors a full slate of races, from 5K (several) through the marathon (Green Mountain Marathon), including the oldest continuously held race in Vermont (the Archie Post Five Miler), races specifically for women, and weekly track workouts. The club was one of the founders and is a continuing supporter of the Vermont City Marathon. In addition, GMAA and its members assist in the organization of many other races in Vermont, including a number of races to benefit charities. To support high school athletes, the GMAA offers small scholarships to help with the costs of attending college.
