Deep Creek 2014 in collaboration with the United States Adventure Racing Association is excited to host the 2014 Adventure Racing National Championships here in Deep Creek Lake, MD on October 2-4.
The National Championships will be a 30 hour long unsupported expedition style endurance race based exclusively on strategic wilderness navigation. The race is comprised of mountain biking, long distance trekking and flat water paddling. There is no course and only a time limit of 30 hours to navigate to as many points as possible between the start line and the finish line.
The AdventureSports Institute, coached by Todd Copley, will be fielding a team in their quest for the Collegiate National Championship. ASI won the National Championship in 2007 and the team is anxious to bring the title back to the epicenter of adventure sports, Garrett County.
Summit Adventure Racing Team, locals Eric Lapp, Joey DiSimone and Todd Copley, will be looking to better their third place finish from last year’s Nationals. The team is currently ranked the #1 team in the North American Adventure Racing Points Series.
