The International Marble Racing Association is the international governing body of marble racing. IMRA is responsible for the organization of marble racing's only major international tournament, the IMRA Grand Championships, which commenced in 2015. The races are always held online, on a program named Algodoo.

IMRA was founded in 2015 to oversee international competition among multiple nations worldwide. Headquartered in West New York, New Jersey, its membership now comprises of 275 members. Member nationa are grouped one of the seven regional confederations into which the world is divided: Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Continental Americas, Europe, Oceania, and the Outlying Nations.


The International Marble Racing Association (IMRA) was founded on January 1st, 2015, when the need for a structured marble racing system was needed for Algodoo. The first president of IMRA was Julian Ricci. IMRA hosts one tournament a year which is called the IMRA Grand Championships. Marbles each had a country flag, which they'll represent themselves in races. Membership of IMRA expanded very quickly in the off-seasons.


IMRA is headquartered in West New York, and is an association established as the "World's 262nd Sports Federation".

There are seven confederations created by IMRA to organize nations within their continent/region. Nations can join or exit only in the off-season.

In total, IMRA contains 275 nations, dependencies, politically sensitive territories, and non-independent territories. IMRA has more member states than the UN.

Types Of Races[edit]

There are 18 races in a season. Usually, there is 2 races every 2 weekends. There are 4 types of races. All 18 racetracks are built by Jack Spero.

There are also 4 finale races after the last race is done on a type of track. The race includes all the marbles who have finished a race on that sort of track. Whoever wins is counted as the racing champion for that type of race. These "extra" races do not count towards any points.

Beat The Clock Races[edit]

Beat The Clock Races (often abbreviated as BTCR) are races in which the marbles must go through a gate before it closes. The first marble activates a gate which closes in either 30, 60, 90, or 120 seconds. This "gate elimination" happens 8 times in this type of race. The marbles that don't make it past the gate before it closes are eliminated. This type of race takes up 9 of the 18 races in the regular season.

Beat The Boss Races[edit]

Beat The Boss Races (often abbreviated as BTCR) are races in which the marbles have to try to survive a "killer" a marble which destroys any marble it touches. There are checkpoints where the "killer" is separated from the other marbles competing. There are usually 5 of these in this type of race. The marble who can't escape the "killer" is eliminated. This type of race takes up 3 of the 18 races in the regular season.

Luck Of The Fall Races[edit]

Luck Of The Fall Races (often abbreviated as LOTFR) are races in which marbles have to fall into tubes. One of the tubes is a trap. The marbles that happen to fall into the "trap" tube, are eliminated. This happens 12-14 times in this type of race. This type of race takes up 4 of the 18 races in the regular season.

Crumbling World Races[edit]

Crumbling World Races (often abbreviated as CWR) are races in which the marbles have to try to maneuver along the racetrack as quickly and as far as possible. A reason for this is because as the marbles race, the track falls apart and collapses behind them. The marbles who are too slow to escape, and fall out with the collapsing track are eliminated. There are usually 4-5 checkpoints in which the marbles will line up and set off again in this type of race. This type of race takes up only 2 of the 18 races in the regular season. One reason for that may be because this type of race is the most challenging and most intense of the 4 types of races in the sport.

The Points System[edit]

Points are only awarded to marbles that finish the race. The winner gets 100 points, while the rest are awarded points based on how many marbles make it to the end. A fraction system is used when determining the points for the marbles who finished. The points standings are updated after every race and rank each team based on finishing position, and is reset at the end of each season. For example:

Position Country Points
1 Nation A 100
2 Nation B 80
3 Nation C 60
4 Nation D 40
5 Nation E 20
Position Country Points
1 Nation A 100
2 Nation B 87.5
3 Nation C 75
4 Nation D 62.5
5 Nation E 50
6 Nation F 37.5
7 Nation G 25
8 Nation H 12.5

Winner's Tiebreakers[edit]

If two or more winners happen to have the same amount of points, a tiebreaker is applied by the amount of marbles who finished behind the winner. For example:

Position Country Points TB
1 Nation A 100 1st/12
2 Nation B 100 1st/10
3 Nation C 100 1st/8

Final Tournament & Champions List[edit]

After the season is over, whoever has the most points is crowned the points champion. The top 48 nations in the standings are invited to the IMRA Grand Championships. It is a knockout-single elimination tournament featuring the top 48 seeded countries. Whoever wins this is crowned the IMRA Grand Champion.
