Cross Country Mission Statement

It is AHRMA’s mission to recreate these different types of cross country events and to provide its members with a safe and historically-accurate racing environment to showcase and experience vintage and post vintage machines for all skill levels of riders.

Cross country riding is how motorcycling began, because roads where very few and far between when motorcycles were born. As the motorcycles and roads improved, the riders still challenged themselves with off-road competitions on ancient Roman roads in Europe and on “cow and wagon” trails in the USA. Eventually, the competition organized into ISDT-type reliability runs in Europe and enduros and “hare and hounds” in the USA. Further organization and land closure issues brought the closed course hare scrambles to prominence.
