Due to the ongoing and widespread disruptions of COVID-19 and out of an abundance of caution, the 2020 Team Pass has been closed down for the season. Existing pass holders have received communication, and we have removed the pass from the online store.
In addition, we do not expect to be able to score points fairly this season (if at all), and are therefore cancelling the points & prizes aspect of the Performance Series for 2020. Please feel free to reach out to the Team Racing Coordinators at email@example.com with questions or concerns.
Throughout the year the GMAA will enter major Vermont & New England Races as a team. Teams are scored for age groups from open (under 40) to 60+. 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.
2020 TEAM RACING PERFORMANCE SERIES
What is the GMAA Team Racing Performance Series?
We believe we all race at our best when we come together as a team – and have more fun! With that in mind, each year, we pick a schedule of races that we encourage GMAA runners to compete in. Coaching and Group Workouts are primarily geared toward the 8 races from the schedule above.
Performance Series Points & Prizes – Cancelled for 2020
The GMAA member who completes the series with the top score (best 5 out of the 8 races + volunteer requirement) in each age group will win (all for the following year):
- Extra 15% discount at SkiRack (for 30% total) exclusive to running shoes/apparel
- Free entry to GMAA races
- Free Team Racing Pass

Team Racing Pass – Cancelled for 2020
For $100, the Team Racing Pass will take care of your entry into all 8 Team Racing Performance Series events, USATF Membership as needed, and a team singlet. The more Team races you do, the better the deal. Note: This pass does not include GMAA club membership.
Once you’ve purchased the pass, the Team Racing Coordinator will follow up with you with more information about registrations and apparel sizing.
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.
We have a team singlet that we ask everyone to wear while representing the club at team races. GMAA singlets are available for purchase, at cost, at the SkiRack. Lots of other fun GMAA apparel and accessories are available at the team tent at all our club events or by request to our team fashion guru at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
GMAA & USATF Membership
To race for the GMAA team, both your GMAA membership and USATF membership must be up to date. You can either purchase a USATF membership via our Team Racing Pass or directly through USATF here, please select the Green Mountain Athletic Association, Club #79. We are in the New England Association.
