Summit Adventure Racing Announces 2014 Race Schedule and Call for Racers

Coming off a stellar 2013 season that saw Team Commie Bar placing 1st in the North American Adventure Racing Series (NAARS) 3 man open division and 3rd place in head to head competition at the National Championships in Browns County Indiana, Summit Adventure Racing is expanding its schedule for 2014 and also seeking to add more racers to the national roster.

Boasting 25 Adventure Races on the docket for 2014, the race schedule will see the Commie Killers venturing across more than 14 states spreading over the Mid Atlantic, New England, Utah, Colorado, and North Dakota.

The 2013 3rd Place National Championship Team (L to R)  Chris Farrell, Todd Copley, Dan Bait Schaefer

The Team is bringing back its core roster of steady performers that have been with the team for close to 5 years.  

Todd Copley will remain as Team Captain and Director and the solid core of the roster will feature the following racers covering different races during the season.
1.  Chris Farrell
2.  Dan "Bait" Schaefer
3.  Dan Kazup
4.  Jon Gamm

In order to cover this volume of racing, Summit Adventure Racing is also seeking new racers to add to their line up.  Racers from across the country looking to be affiliated with a nationally ranked squad are invited to contact us for becoming part of Summit Adventure Racing.  Doesn't matter where you live.  Send us an email to TCOPESWORLD@gmail.com along with a short biography outlining your adventure racing experience, background and goals.  

The 2014 Race Schedule is listed below.  A black box with the word "Open" indicates we are seeking a racer/teammate for that race.  Contact us if you would like to join us for that race.
