part in and form them into a one
day race for the Crew members. Our first event covered a
12 miles and we had six 2-person teams made up of our teenaged Crew

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.
