USARA Adventure Race National Championship at Pine Mountain State Resort Park - October 1 - 3, 2015 Flying Squirrel Adventures is excited to be bringing the USARA Adventure Race National Championship back to Kentucky! The 2015 championship race will be headquartered out of Pine Mountain State Resort Park in Bell County, Kentucky. It is one of many national championship races comprising the 2015 Kentucky Adventure Games.
Bell County lies on one side of the famed Cumberland Gap, a narrow opening within the Cumberland Mountains, a long ridge within the Appalachian Mountains, near the junction of Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia. This gap was a key passageway through the mountains and an integral part of the Wilderness Road. Middlesboro is the town built on the Kentucky side of the gap, entirely within a 3.7-mile diameter crater left by a meteorite impact. Pine Mountain and the town of Pineville lie just north of there. The Cumberland River cuts through the mountain at a location known as "The Narrows," the second gap native Americans and pioneers had to pass through traveling west into Kentucky. Racers biking, trekking and paddling through the rugged and steep terrain of this region will surely be in awe at the adventurers who came before them. To read more about the region, visit the Bell County Tourism website.
