The U.S. Adventure Racing Association has selected McHenry as the site for its 2014 U.S. National Championships of Adventure Racing, which consists of a grueling 100-mile/30-hour race, according to an announcement made by Deep Creek 2014. Deep Creek 2014 is the event production company and host organization presenting the 2014 International Canoe Federation Canoe Slalom World Championships, which will be held at ASCI from Sept. 17 to 21. Deep Creek 2014 Executive Director Todd Copley said “No other destination in the world can boast that they are hosting both a world championship and a national championship in the same year.” This race will be held in October. Garrett County will be featured on banners at 40 qualifying events and will receive extensive coverage in Adventure World Magazine during the year leading up to the event.
