RACE HISTORY
     This race was originally designed as a way to incorporate the many activities that Boy Scout Venturing Crew 1 took part in and form them into a one day race for the Crew members. Our first event covered a total of 12 miles and we had six 2-person teams made up of our teenaged Crew members.  Over the years, we have grown into a full fledged Adventure Race!

     Now open to the public, it has evolved into one of Arizona's most popular and the state's biggest Adventure Race.  Teams from as far away as Florida and Washington  have come to compete in the GAR.

         The race is named in posthumous honor of a former BSA Troop 1 Eagle Scout named Shane Gilmore. Shane was killed in a tragic car accident involving a drunk driver. We chose to name the race after him because he was very active in the high adventure aspects of scouting, and would have loved the sport of Adventure Racing.
